Preheat oven to 120°C/250°F. Split and scrape vanilla bean. Add milk, heavy cream, vanilla bean seeds, and the scraped vanilla bean pod to a pot and bring to a boil. Remove vanilla bean pod from the pot.

Add egg yolks and some sugar to a bowl and whisk until foamy. Stream in the hot milk and cream mixture while whisking continuously.
