Best Homemade Bavarian Cream

Homemade Bavarian Cream Recipe


1/3 cup white sugar
1 TBS flour
1 TBS cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
1-1/2 cups milk
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup heavy cream, whipped

In a heavy saucepan, beat the egg yolk well. Over medium heat, add the flour mixture to the egg yolk, alternately with the milk and vanilla, stirring constantly.

Bring the mixture to a slow boil. Continue cooking and stirring until mixture is thickened; approximately 2 to 3 minutes.

Pour the custard into a bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes, or just long enough for it to begin to gel. It should be thick but pourable.

This last step is the secret of a fabulous Bavarian Cream: Beat the cream only until it holds soft peaks. If the cream is too stiff, the dessert will be too firm. Fold the whipped cream into the custard.

Spoon into a 2-quart mold or bowl, cover with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate several hours, to allow the dessert to gel. If the Bavarian cream is in a mold, turn it out onto a plate before serving. Otherwise, spoon into dessert bowls.
