Crema Catalan With Summer Fruits

I slightly adapted the Spanish Catalan region's dessert.

Recipe By: Mizue (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/32)
Serves 3 Cook: 30 min

Ingredients

Full fat milk 220ml
Vanilla paste a little
Egg yolks 2
Caster sugar 50g
Cornflour 10g
Demerara sugar 1 tbsp
Blackberries (for garnish) as required
Berry puree:
Strawberries 100g
Raspberries 25g
Blackberries 25g
Water 1.5 tbsp
Caster sugar 1.5 tbsp
Lemon juice a little

Method

1
Put all the ingredients for the berry puree except the lemon juice in a small pan.
2
Bring to the boil then mash and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the lemon juice and turn the heat off. Allow to cool.
3
Put the egg yolks and caster sugar in a bowl and mix well. Add the cornflour and vanilla paste and mix to a smooth blend.
4
Put the milk in another pan and bring just to the boil. Pour the milk into Step 3 a bit at a time and mix well.
5
Add 2 tbsp berry puree from Step 2 and mix well.
6
Pour Step 5 back into the milk pan and put on low heat. Keep stirring all the while. It will start to firm up.
7
Stir for 2-3 minutes then turn the heat off. While it's hot, pour into ramekin dishes.
8
When it's cooled, put in the fridge for 1 hour to firm up.
9
Sprinkle lots of demerara sugar on top to cover and put under a grill 250C for 3-4 minutes until the sugar caramelises.
10
Garnish with the blackberries and serve.

Tips & Note

●When you make the berry puree, use fewer blackberries to make a nicer colour
●At Step 4, don't boil the milk otherwise it will form a skin which you don't want
