While cream is being heated, mix sugar and yolks together in a bowl.


Add a small amount of the hot milk to the yolk mixture and mix. Then add the yolk mixture to hot milk. Continue cooking over med - low heat while stirring constantly. Cook until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and add vanilla (or any other flavorings).
