2️. For the custard: add the sugar, vanilla sugar, and a pinch of salt to the eggs and beat with a mixer. Then add the cornstarch and beat again with a mixer. Pour the milk into a saucepan (but not an enamel one, because it will burn with the cream), put it on the fire, and bring it to a hot state.

How to cook cream correctly

3. Pour the egg mixture into the milk and stir with a whisk over medium heat until a cream forms. When the cream has curdled and started to bubble, turn the heat down and stir vigorously for 30 seconds to open the starch well.

Preparation of the cream

4. Add the butter to the cream and mix well again until the butter is combined with the other ingredients. Transfer the cream to any container, cover it with cling film to prevent it from getting airborne, and cool to room temperature.
