IngredientsRecipe for 4 persons
Preparation time: 30 min
- Pastry cream
Bring the milk to a boil in a large sauce pot.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar and egg yolks. Add the flour and corn starch (sifted beforehand).
Whisk well to make sure there are not any clumps. Add 70% of the hot liquid to the mixing bowl whisking continually.
Pour this mixture back into the sauce pot and continue to cook while stirring constantly. Once lightly boiling, make sure to continue cooking for a good minute.
Remove pot from the heat and then incorporate the butter as well as your flavour of choice.
Set aside in the fridge, making sure you have covered it with plastic wrap in direct contact with the pastry cream to avoid forming a crust.
It is possible to put the extract-based flavours into the milk directly.
