Pastry Cream Recipe ( Patisserie Cream):


  • 2 cups milk (480ml)
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup Moench patisserie Creme Vanilla flavored cornstarch ( I bought this in France but you can use 1/4 cup cornstarch and 1/4 flour instead)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened


  • 1. In a thick bottom sauce pan warm 2 cups of milk over low heat.
  • 2. In a bowl cream egg yolks and granulated sugar. Sift in patisserie cornstarch. Whisk until smooth. Finally stir in vanilla and a pinch of salt.
  • 3. Pour only 1/4 of warm milk into (2) and whisk to combine. Then pour the cream in the pan of the warm milk.
  • 4. Over medium heat bring it to a boil whisking constantly. When it starts to boil, whisk continually until the cream thickens.
  • 5. Out of heat stir in 1/3 cup of unsalted butter. Mix until combined. Transfer to a heat-proof bowl and let cool and cover with cellophane so as not to create a film.
