Once you have all the ingredients, you can get down to business. Pour the milk in a saucepan over medium heat to bring to the boil and add lemon zest along with a cinnamon stick. Stir well and let cook for 10 minutes. In a bowl add the egg yolks, without the whites, along with the sugar and cornflour and whisk until all lumps are smoothed out. It should be a smooth texture. You could use an electric whisk to beat the contents well and avoid lumps.


After 10 minutes of cooking, add the contents of the bowl into the boiling pan and stir well to achieve the creamy texture of the custard. Make sure to stir well to avoid any lumps for the perfect creamy texture.

When the mixture is creamy, let it sit until it reaches room temperature for 20 minutes. After this time, you should have a cold cream. Pour into one container or divide between many smaller ones. After this step, all that's left to do is to add the biscuits on top. Rich Tea biscuits are normally used, though you could choose any type, as long as the ingredients complement the custard and do not ruin the taste.

Finally, sprinkle on some cinnamon and place in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to set and so that it is nice and cold. Another option is to mix in some biscuit crumbs and then sprinkle some on top. This means that the biscuits are not just mixed into the custard, but also sit on top as decoration. You could also place a whole biscuit at the bottom, instead of sprinkled on top.
