Vanilla Slice



Vanilla Slice


Ingredients:
  • 2 sheets of puff pastry
  • 1,5 l / 6 1/3 cups milk
  • 150 g / 5 ¼ oz corn starch
  • 3 packets (9g each) vanilla sugar
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 200 g / 7 oz sugar
  • 8 oz whipping cream + 1 stabilizer

Instructions:

Let the puff pastry sheets thaw, the roll them out on a lightly floured surface, and bake according to directions on a jelly roll pan. Let them cool, and then cut out the shape according to the size of the square pan you will use. I used 9 inch x 13 inch. Once you cut them to the shape of the pan, cut one sheet into squares (I made 12); that will be the top of the cake.

Cream: Mix egg yolks with sugar, until frothy. Add a cup of milk (out of the 6 1/3 cups), and corn starch, and mix well. Set the reminder of milk with vanilla sugar added, to boil, and when it comes to a boil, slowly mix in the yolk mixture, and stir constantly for a minute. Transfer to a large mixing bowl, and let cool completely. When cooled, add the whipped whipping cream, whipped with a stabilizer.

Now put the whole sheet on the bottom of the pan, and spread the filling over it. Arrange the cut out sheet on top. Refrigerate for few hours before serving. Dust with powdered sugar.
Instead of the top sheet of puff pastry, you can put whipped cream, and so on. Suit yourself, and enjoy : )

    1. Vanilla sugar is made of sugar and vanilla beans or sugar mixed with vanilla extract,,

      Vanilla sugar can be prepared at home by combining approximately 2 cups of white sugar with the scraped seeds of one vanilla bean. Alternatively, you can simply add 1 to 2 whole vanilla beans to an airtight jar containing 1 to 2 cups of white sugar; let the mixture age for approximately 2 weeks then use 2 tablespoons in place of one packet of vanilla sugar; continue to replace sugar as it is used and the beans will last indefinitely

    1. I was wondering the same? thing so I googled it and this is what I got http://germanfood.about.com/od/Baking-Terms/tp/What-Is-Whipped-Cream-Stabilizer.htm hope it helps, if possible just use a whipping cream with a 40%+ fat content then you won't have to add a stabilizer.

  3. Do you fold the whipped cream into the custard mixture, or layer it?
