Whisk the egg yolks, the sugar and the salt until thickened and then trickle in the brandy, beating as you trickle.

Pour the mixture into a saucepan and warm over a low heat, whisking continuously – be patient because if you allow it to boil, all the alcohol will evaporate.

It’s ready as soon as you can coat the back of a spoon..

Remove the saucepan from the heat and whisk in the vanilla extract (make very sure it’s vanilla extract and not essence).

Serve with whipped cream and dust with cocoa powder.
