Baking Sheet
Mesh Strainer


  • ½ cup Superfine Sugar
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 4 Eggs Yolks
  • 1 cup Half-And-Half Cream
  • ½ tsp Black Walnut Extract
  • 2 cups Light Cream
  • ¼ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ½ cup Chopped Black Walnuts


  • Place the walnuts on a baking sheet and roast them for about 5 minutes and keep them aside until cool.
  • Take a saucepan and put milk, half of the black walnuts, salt, sugar and ½ cup of cream in it and let them heat. After this mixture is warm enough, take it off the flame and keep it at room temperature for about 1 hour.
  • Take a bowl and put egg yolks in it and whisk them and keep it aside.
  • Now, put this egg yolk into the previously made mixture while keeping it on low flame and keep stirring continuously.
  • Let this mixture cook at medium heat and keep stirring until the mixture becomes thick enough.
  • Now, take a mesh strainer and pour the custard in the 1 cup cream and stir it along. 
  • You can extract the walnuts from the strainer to add more flavour to it. Mix this mixture in the vanilla and keep it aside until cool.
  • Now, after this mixture is at room temperature, refrigerate it until it becomes solid and then it’s ready to eat.
