Combine sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Combine egg yolks and milk; slowly add to sugar mixture, stirring constantly until smooth. Add butter. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla extract. Cool. Fold whipped cream into cool custard.
