I use to adjust this recipe and use it when as a filling in Cup cakes and cakes.

Ingredients You'll Need

In a heatproof mixing bowl, beat egg yolks until smooth.

Pour the hot milk into the egg yolk mixture in a steady stream, beating constantly.

When all the milk has been added, place the bowl over a pan of boiling water, or pour the mixture into the top of a double boiler. Heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Cook 2 minutes more, then remove from the heat. Stir in the butter and vanilla. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to cool for 1 hour
