Vanilla cream

A super easy vanilla cream for when you're craving something sweet but light.
Prep Time 30 minutes
Course Dessert
Cuisine Italian
Servings 4 people


  • 500 ml milk
  • 50 g flour
  • 4 egg yolks medium
  • 75 g sugar fine
  • 1 vanilla pod or 1 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste
  • 10 blueberries (optional)


  • If you’re using a vanilla pod, split it lengthwise and with a knife blade scrape the seeds. Put the milk, vanilla pod and its seeds in a saucepan over low heat. Or if you’re using the vanilla bean seeds paste, just add one teaspoon to the milk. 
  • When the milk is hot, turn off the heat and cover the pan with a lid and let it rest for a few minutes so that the vanilla releases its flavor, after that remove the vanilla pod.
  • Put the yolks in a bowl, add the sugar and mix with a whisk until light in color.
  • Sift the flour, gradually add it to the mixture of yolks and sugar and mix carefully until completely homogenous.
  • Gradually pour the warm milk over the mixture and mix with a whisk until smooth.
  • Put the liquid mixture obtained back in the pan and boil the cream on low heat for about 10 minutes or until you get a creamy composition (if you have a food thermometer, the temperature of the final cream should be 82°C).
    It is very important to stir the cream continuously during boiling, in order to get a silky cream, without lumps.
  • Once ready pour the cream into a bowl and immediately cover the surface of the vanilla cream with food-grade plastic wrap (the foil is placed directly over the cream).
    Let the cream cool completely.
  • Serve it in a glass with some bluberries on top! Enjoy it!
