For the custard:

  • Place a saucepan over medium heat. Add the milk and ½ of the sugar. Stir and bring to a boil.
  • As soon as it comes to a boil, remove from heat.
  • In a bowl, add all of the remaining sugar, egg yolks and corn starch. Whisk them together until the mixture is completely smooth and combined.
  • Add ladleful’s of the milk while whisking continuously.
  • When completely combined, transfer mixture back to pot and place back over medium heat.
  • Whisk continuously and vigorously until the mixture begins to thicken. Lower heat.
  • When the mixture thickens enough, remove from heat.
  • Add the butter and stir until the custard is smooth, creamy and shiny.
  • Pass through a sieve and transfer to a small baking pan.
  • Cover with plastic wrap, making sure the wrap touches the surface of the custard directly, so that it doesn’t form a film on top.

  • Divide dough into 4 equal parts. Cover with a towel and allow it to rest for 20-30 minutes.
  • When ready, roll out each piece of dough into a 50x15 cm rectangle.
  • Add ¼ of the cream to the center of each piece of dough. Spread it with a spatula leaving a 2 cm border all around.
  • Roll dough into a cylinder. It should like a cylinder filled with cream.
  • Brush the edges with some oil so it can seal and the filling won’t run out.
  • Shape cylinder into a swirl or spiral.
  • Repeat process with all of the pieces of dough.

  • When ready, remove from oven. Set aside to cool.
