Tools & Equipment


Custard sauce

  1. Soften the gelatin in a little bit of water.
  2. Pour the milk into a pan and heat the milk begins to scald, remove from heat.
  3. Take a large bowl and mix together the egg yolks, bread flour, corn flour, and the sugar. Slowly add warm milk, whisking as pour, until added all the milk.
  4. Sift the mixture and transfer into a pan or pot. Stir with low heat and whisk constantly, then add the gelatin. Once the mixture begins to thicken, remove from heat and refrigerate it until you need to use.
  5. Now, let’s do mascarpone sauce, carefully beat together the sugar, mascarpone, and cream just until blended. Then refrigerate it.
  6. Beat the mascarpone sauce at medium speed with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form, and whisk the custard mixture until soft. Then mix the mascarpone sauce and custard mixture together.

  3. Beat the egg whites with a whisk in a bowl until frothy, and add the sugar on low speed until sugar is completely mixed and shiny.
  4. Take 1/3 of the egg whites mixture and fold it into the batter, then repeat with the remaining egg whites mixture until the batter is smoothly combined.
  5. Line the bottom and slide with parchment paper in the prepared baking tray, then pour the batter into the tray and tap the tray to release air bubbles.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven 340°F (170°C) for 10~12 mins, remove from oven and take out from the tray. Then peel the paper around sides and the bottom paper carefully, and place aside.
