Α super yummy way to treat your guests
You may use crumbled digestive cookies. It tastes better with melomakarona though.
For the Creme Patisserie
1 Ltr Milk (full fat)
200 grams of sugar
100 grams flour
100 grams corn flour
100 grams of butter
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
300 g cream
275 g dark chocolate 70%
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.
