Christmas Trifle recipe Creme Patisserie chocolate ganache coola artisan γαβριηλ νικολαιδης

Directions

Place  700 g of milk in a pot and add all the sugar, but not stir. Turn on the heat and warm the mixture until it boils . In a bowl , add the flour and corn flour.  Add the remaining 300g of milk and stir well with a whisk . When milk reaches the boiling point remove from heat. Add the second mixture and mix well with a whisk. Then return to the heat.. I try to ” bake ” the cream so the flour is cooked and the flavor is disappeared. This might take up to ten minutes. It needs cooking at a very low heat and constant stirring.

Remove from heat, add butter and stir until is melted. Creme is ready for use.

For the chocolate ganache

Ingredients
300 g cream
275 g dark chocolate 70%

Directions
Heat the cream In a small saucepan,  just before it reaches the boiling point. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie. Add half of the cream into the chocolate and mix with a pastry spatula until it is completely incorporated. Repeat the process with the remaining cream.
