Cook milk and sugar together, to reduce it to half the amount.
Add half the spice powder, half the nuts and the vanilla and mix well and cool.
Mix the cream into the milk and beat the mixture into the beaten eggs.
Transfer into the prepared dish, sprinkle the rest of the nuts and spices, and the blobs of butter and bake in the pre heated oven for 1/2 an hour (a skewer inserted should come out clean).
Should be brown on top.
Cool and chill. You can also decorate with nuts.
Cut into squares and serve.
