Worked perfectly, and looked spot on, but boiling for 2 minutes caused it to split! I too used/wasted a vanilla bean. Will try again at some point without boiling it.
Total fail

It all went fine until the last part of step 2 - boil for 2 minutes. The thickened mixture then separated and I ended up with a mixture of separated oil and gooey egg. I think I should have stopped before the mixture separated but the recipe called for boil for 2 minutes. Unfortunately this didn't work for me and I wasted time on this, even wasted a vanilla pod. Disappointing.
Great
