How to make Vanilla Custard Cream

  • To cook an excellent custard, combine the egg yolks with the sugar in a saucepan using a hand whisker. Then, slowly add the flour without pausing, stirring until the batter is blended.
  • Let's begin by pouring the milk into a saucepan, adding the lemon zest or vanilla, and letting it heat while continually stirring.
  • Simmer for 3-4 minutes. You should maintain the correct temperature (84-85 ° C), but it is prudent not to surpass 82 ° because the cream will continue to cook even once removed from the heat.
  • Therefore, please remove it from the fire when you reach 82 °. In this way, you will obtain a smooth custard without unpleasant hints and the taste of cooked eggs.
  • Pour it into a bowl and let it cool, turning it from time to time so that a film does not form on the surface of the custard.
  • The custard must smell vanilla, but you could also flavor it differently with citrus peel, such as the easy, quick, and delicious lemon custard.
  • Now that you know how to make Vanilla Custard Cream recipe, you can use it for any fillings.
  • Enjoy your tart. Buon appetito!
