Homemade Pastry Cream is so versatile! Every good baker should have a go-to recipe. Learn how to whip up this creamy, egg-y filling like a pro! (Gluten and dairy free.)
Add the hot milk to the egg mixture, a little at a time, whisking to combine.
When all the milk has been added, transfer the mixture back to the pot and place over medium-low heat. Cook the pastry cream, whisking, until thickened.
Stir in the vanilla, and pour the pastry cream through a fine mesh strainer, into a heat-safe bowl.
Use the back of a ladle to press the mixture through the sieve.
