ChezSuzanne...You should add the egg with the milk (sorry about that) and sugar and the milk should just be warmed to around 100 degrees.

Looks really interesting and would love to make it. Couple questions: should I scald the milk? Also I didn't see mention of the egg in the ingredients, but saw it in the text. Does it call for 1 egg?
