My favourite dessert so thought I'd have a go at making my own. 400ml milk, 2 eggs plus a yolk, sugar and a vanilla pod. In the oven for 40 mins at 110degC in a bain marie then overnight in the fridge but it's still liquid. It'd be a shame to pour it down the sink. Any ideas how to reclaim it and where did I go wrong?

Wrong ratio of egg to milk. This is the spec we use at work.

Cream 1000g
Milk 1000g
Caster sugar 360g
Egg yolks 16
Whole egg 4
Vanilla pod 1

Result...

Thought so. Any way to reclaim it? Stir in a few yolks and put it back the oven. Seems a shame to pour the vanilla pod down the drain.
Yours looks perfect by the way.

Put it in the microwave for 10 mins and it tastes just like CC. It looks like vomit and is hotter than the sun but tastes just like the real thing with loads of caramel which you never get enough of.
