100g flour
75g butter
40g sugar
¼ of a beaten egg

Recipe

PASTRY CREAM

Ingredients

500ml milk
100g sugar
5 egg yolks
60g cornflour or flour
13g 'Mélange de Galice'
A small piece of butter

Recipe

In a saucepan, bring the milk to a boil, outside of the heat, add the flavored black tea ‘Mélange de Galice’ and let it infuse for 10 minutes. In the meantime, in a bowl, mix the egg yolks and the sugar and beat the whole until the pastry blanches. Add progressively the cornflour without making lumps. Once the infusion is done, sieve the milk. Reheat the milk until it comes to the boil, then pour half of it into the bowl while whisking energetically. Pour the blend of the bowl into the rest of the milk, in the pan. Heat up the whole on a low heat. Mix continuously until the cream becomes thicker, be careful, the cream must remain supple. Once the cream is cooked, outside of the heat, continue to whisk it, so it cools down faster. Dab it with a small piece of butter on the top in order to prevent the formation of a crust.
