A truly easy crème patisserie for all of your desserts!!!
- Split and seed the vanilla pod with a knife. Add both the seeds and the vanilla pod to a pot with 700 g of milk.
- Add all of the sugar but do not mix. Heat the mixture in the pot over medium heat and bring to a boil.
- Combine the flour with the corn starch in a bowl. Add the remaining 300 g of milk while continuously mixing with a hand whisk so that no lumps form.
- When the milk boils, remove from heat. Add the flour mixture and remove the vanilla pod. Continue whisking and put back on heat.
- You need to keep whisking until the mixture thickens. We are trying to “cook” the flour in the crème to get rid of the floury taste. This may take about 10 minutes over very low heat and continuous mixing.
- Remove from heat and add the butter and mix until it melts. Pour into a small baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap. Press on the wrap so that it comes into direct contact with the crème. This is done so that the crème doesn’t form a “skin” on top. Refrigerate until firm.
- Your crème patisserie is now ready to use!
