Ingredients to make easy and vanilla-free pastry cream:
500 milliliters of milk
6 tablespoons sugar
3 egg yolks
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons cold milk
How to make easy, vanilla-free pastry cream:
To make a perfect pastry cream, we are going to put a large saucepan on the fire with half a liter of milk together with three tablespoons of sugar and the lemon rind (without taking much of the white part, which is the bitter one).
Tip: The milk can be skimmed if desired.
In a separate bowl , put the egg yolks, the rest of the sugar, the cornstarch and the cold milk. We stir with a few rods to avoid lumps.
Tip: The lumps of flour always melt better when we use cold milk.
When the milk that we had on the fire is hot, but not boiling , we remove a small spoon and pour it into the bowl where we had the yolks. We add the saucepan of hot milk little by little while we are stirring with some rods so that the yolks do not set. Add another scoop and stir again to continue preparing the pastry cream without vanilla.
Now is the time to add all the mixture of the yolks to the saucepan of milk that we had on the fire with the lemon rind. We constantly stir the easy pastry cream recipe until it thickens.
Once you’ve thickened, our vanilla bean-free pastry cream is ready. We remove the lemon peel, or if you like its flavor quite a bit, you can leave it inside so that it infuses even more and has more lemon flavor. We transfer the cream to another bowl to cool it down. It is very important to cover all the cream with a transparent plastic wrap and that the paper touches the surface of it, thus we will prevent it from forming a darker film.
When the easy pastry cream without vanilla is cold, we reserve it in the refrigerator, as it is a cream that has to be served very cold. And we will have it ready to fill any sweet or to take it like that, served in bowls or glasses.
