How to prepare the milk cream recipe

  1. Combine the sugar and sifted cornstarch in a saucepan.
  2. Gradually pour in the milk at room temperature, stirring with a whisk to avoid the formation of lumps.
  3. Cut the vanilla pod in half lengthwise and put it in the milk.
  4. Cook the cream over low heat for about ten minutes, until it thickens. Remember to stir often to prevent lumps from forming.
  5. Once ready, remove the berry and transfer it to a bowl, covering it with cling film to prevent the skin from forming.
  6. Once cold, your cream is ready to be used.

If lumps should form or if it cools down it becomes too compact, you can blend everything with the immersion blender. Depending on the use, you may want it more fluid : add a spoon or two of milk according to your needs. Also, although vanilla milk cream is the most common, you can also flavor it with other ingredients such as lemon zest or almond extract. For a vegan version instead, replace the cow's milk with a vegetable drink of your choice.

Egg-free milk cream is very similar to egg-free custard , which is also excellent for filling desserts.


The milk cream can be kept in the refrigerator, well covered, for up to 3 days.
