My mom's vanilla cream cake

This simple and delicious cake, that I learnt from my mom, has a very intense vanilla taste. Let me introduce the white beauty to you.

500 g flour
2 eggs
100 g powder sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda

3 tablespoon milk
150 g butter

For the filling:
1000 ml milk
1 pinch of salt
1 tablespoon sugar

1 vanilla pod
5 tablespoon flour
200 g sugar
4 egg yolks
50 ml milk
250 g butter

Knead flour, eggs, powder sugar, in 1 tablespoon milk dissolved baking soda and butter to a dough. Cut dough in 4 or 5 pieces, depending on the size of the baking form you want to use. Turn a rectangle baking form on the top and butter it. Roll out dough about 3 mm thin, so that you can almost see through. Bake one by one on 200°C for 8-9 minutes.
For the cream heat milk with a pinch of salt, 1 tablespoon sugar and a vanilla pod. As soon as it starts to boil stir in the following mixture: whisk flour, sugar and egg yolks with milk until mixed well. Cook the cream until it is thick enough and let it cool. When it is completly
cooled down stir in butter.

I know this tastes wonderful! We make something similar, only there is honey in the bisquits, and we call it honey pie, and it's best when you let it sit for 2 days. Mmmmm!
