Caramel Custard Cream

Caramel Custard Cream

This is a slightly bitter cream made by mixing low calorie custard and caramel sauce. It's easy to make in the microwave.

Ingredients

A) Sugar
20 g
A) Cake flour
1 tablespoon
A) Cornstarch
2 tablespoons
Milk
50 ml + 130 ml
Egg yolk
1
Caramel sauce (Recipe ID: 578510)
30 g
B) Rum, brandy
1/2 teaspoon each

Steps

1. Put the A) ingredients in a heatproof bowl and whisk until fluffy. (To substitute sifting them, but you can sift them instead if you like.)
2. Stir in 50 ml of milk, then add the egg yolk and mix. Stir in the remaining 130 ml of milk.
3. Add the caramel sauce and mix. Strain the mixture once.
4. Microwave for 2 minutes, then whisk it. Microwave for another minute, and mix well. (I used a 700 W microwave.)
5. Add and mix the B) ingredients to finish. Cover the surface of the cream with cling film and let cool.
6. It will set on the thick side. Adjust the thickness depending on what you are making.
