Custard Yellow Milk Cream

This Custard is a basic cream that is used for making other custard recipes. My recipe stands out from the others for its characteristic that it does not drip, in fact, using whole eggs and blending afterwards, it simultaneously makes the custard soft and compact. It is suitable for filling any dessert.


  • 500 ml milk
  • 100g 00 flour
  • 100g sugar
  • 3 whole eggs
  • organic lemon zest
  • 50 ml liqueur or rum for dessert

When the custard is ready, pour it into a bowl and turn it with a whisk so that it becomes pretty soft. Then cover with a damp cloth and let it cool

When the custard is cold, with the mixer or in the planetary mixer, blend it with the liqueur for a few minutes until it is smooth and soft


  1. The lemon must be washed and dried.
  2. As an alternative to lemon you can use a vanillin sachet or a spoonful of vanilla.
  3. Cut the lemon zest with a potato peeler, so you don’t remove the white part of the lemon which is bitter.
  4. To cook the custard, do not use the same pot in which you boiled the milk, otherwise it sticks underneath.
  5. When cooked, turn the custard from time to time during the cooling process. This way you will avoid that odious little skin forming on the surface.


The custards can be kept in the fridge for three days. If it’s very hot, two at the most.
