Raspberry Pastry Cream
125 g milk (1)
18 g sugar
20 g egg yolks
6 g sugar
10 g cornstarch
8 g flour
18 g raspberry puree
75 g heavy cream
Bring milk, vanilla and sugar (1) to a boil.
Meanwhile mix egg yolk and sugar (2) together.
Add cornstarch and flour. I like to add a little cold milk (1) so it’s easier to mix.
Slowly pour hot milk over the egg-sugar mixture and stir. Put it back in the saucepan and bring pastry cream to a boil for about 1-2 minutes until it thickens. Turn of the heat.
Transfer the cream in a bowl, add raspberry puree and mix well.
Cover directly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours. Whip heavy cream to medium stiff peaks. Whisk raspberry pastry cream to loosen, then fold in whipped cream.
