3 whole cloves
½ tsp vanilla extract
1g ground cinnamon
7 egg yolks

Combine the milk, cloves, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract and cinnamon in a saucepan, and heat over the lowest setting for five minutes. Slowly bring to the boil.
In a large bowl, combine the egg yolks and sugar and whisk together until fluffy. Then whisk the hot milk slowly into the eggs.
