In a bowl mix together the eggs yolks, sugar, cornflour and moonshine.
Heat the cream, milk and vanilla in a pot until it just comes to a simmer and remove from the heat immediately.
Pour the hot milk over the egg mixture in a steady stream whilst continuously whisking until all of the milk is added.
Pour the mix through a sieve back into a pot and then return to a moderate heat. Continuously whisk the custard until it is thickened and then remove from the heat.
Pour custard over portions of the fudge cake, enjoy and then try and resist the urge to go back for second helpings!
