Utensils: 2 ovens, cutting board, knife, 2 pots, bowl, whisk, 6 ramekins, baking sheet (deep), flambé torch

Preheat oven to 120°C/250°F. Split and scrape vanilla bean. Add milk, heavy cream, vanilla bean seeds, and the scraped vanilla bean pod to a pot and bring to a boil. Remove vanilla bean pod from the pot.

Add egg yolks and some sugar to a bowl and whisk until foamy. Stream in the hot milk and cream mixture while whisking continuously.

Set the bowl over a pot of simmering water and heat while whisking constantly for approx. 10 min., or until the mixture thickens. Fill the mixture into ramekins.
