Pastry cream is a creamy custard with simple ingredients of milk, eggs, sugar, cornstarch in all recipes and some also add flour, salt and butter. Vanilla, lemon and chocolate are common flavors for this delightlful filling. It’s really a velvety smooth pudding that’s quite quick and easy to make. Creme Patissiere or Pastry cream is used as a filling for eclairs, cream puffs, boston cream pie, napoleons, cupcakes and cakes, fruit tarts and lots of dessert pastries. Try this sweet pastry cream filling with my Fruit Tart Recipe with Shortbread Crust! I makes a very delicious fruit tart custard and the tart is easy to make and delicious!

  2. scott watts says:

    I hate cream puff "cutters" use a small pointed dowel to make a small hole and hollow out the center a bit so you can pipe in any filling that might need chilled before serving. Corn starch is a must in any real kitchen.


  4. Sophie Iqbal says:

    could u use something else besides cornstarch

  5. where are the measurements ?

  6. Hailey _____ says:

    Could you replace the cornstarch with flower ??


  8. Mrs.Smith says:

    Tried this last night and it turned out very thick. I followed all the measurements in the website, I also used 4 egg yolks but it becomes watery when I combine it with cornstarch. So what I did was I added some more cornstarch for the "thick-paste" texture. After I heated it for the last time it becomes so hard and rubbery. I should have adjusted the eggs instead. The measurement you have is misleading. Did you really use 4 egg yolks?

  9. can you tell me the puff recipes

  10. wah look niceeeee… I will this!!!! tqz a lot

  11. Naomi Lynch says:

    I haven't got any corn starch do you have to add it in because I can't find it in my store plz respond as soon as you can.

  12. FoxtailKelly says:

    I was waiting for the what I call the "yummy face" look, then you ate the whole cream puff!  Made me laugh!  You looked surprised and then "what the hoot" than you ate it all.  It was funny.

  13. OMG you had me cracking up at the end! I would have done the same thing. You kept it real so I definitely subscribed and hit the thumbs up button! Looks delicious!

  25. lovebug2085 says:

  26. justpar2012 says:

    Di, would the pastry cream hold up to use between that layers of a cake or would it collapse?

  27. Is it possible to use any type of milk?
    Or does it have to be whole milk?

  28. Joshua Young says:

    pastry cream is just like pudding you can just eat it right out of the bowl.

  29. She's so adorable I'm going to try this tomorrow

  30. Mon Bae says:

  31. hello,

  32. how do u know how much milk or sugar u need??

  33. Arch Nemesis says:

    Can I use this recipe 4 banana pudding?

  34. Mel Buckner says:

    Dianne – curiuos about the yield?  I'm about to make my grandma's eclair recipe for xmas – however, she used to use vanilla pudding as the filling – which would work but I'd rather use pastry cream.  Her recipe yields about 8 big eclairs (the way she made they were about the size of a maple bar donut)..

    Can we use corn flour if we don't have corn starch?
