Custard is perfect for pies or choux. This recipe is a basic recipe, to which you can add some whipped cream or chocolate. What makes the difference is the use of corn and rice starch instead of all-purpose flour. The final result will be perfect!
- Heat the milk together with the cream and the vanilla pod.
- Whisk the yolks, the sugar and the starches in a bowl. If the mixture is too dry, add gradually some hot milk till it becomes a smooth paste.
- Remove the vanilla pod and pour in the rest of milk.
- Than, put your custard on the heat again in a sauce pan and cook gently, stirring till thickened.
- Pour the custard into a bowl and cover it with some cling wrap. (You should press it over the custard to prevent skin).
- Refrigerate your custard and let it rest in the fridge before using it.
