In this video, you will learn how to make a pastry cream. Pastry cream is just like a vanilla sauce that is thickened with starch. In this case, we are using corn starch. Begin by whisking your egg and adding some sugar. Using a stainless steel pan, bring some milk to a boil and add sugar. Add corn starch to your egg mixture. Whisk until the corn starch is dissolved. Temper the yolks with the hot milk. Pour 1/3 of milk into egg mixture. Then pour the egg mixture back into the pot slowly. Bring the cream to a boil. The starch will work as a buffer. Keep whisking until it thickens and is creamy. Add butter. This will make it smooth and cool down the custard. Keep whisking until creamy. Transfer the custard into a bowl that is over an ice bath. Cover with plastic wrap and now you have a pastry cream.
