Notes: —— As you can see, this recipe is constructed so that it is easy to add any flavoring to the basic custard.

Where it asks to add flavoring, try: Balsamic vinegar: Add 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar. (nutty and vanilla like, but slightly tangier. No one will even guess)

Cognac: Add 1/3 cup cognac

Passionfruit: Add 1/4 cup passionfruit puree.
