Amazing cream "Charlotte". Step-by-step recipe
- Prepare a dish so that the milk when heated does not burn and it does not get dark. Milk is poured into a prepared pan and poured out sugar. Approximately 10 percent of sugar should be left: it is still useful.
- We put a pot of milk on the stove, on a slow fire, constantly stirring, let the sugar dissolve. We bring it to the boil and boil it - 1-2 minutes. We remove from the fire.
- Egg whisk with the remaining sugar whisk, then a thin trickle pour the hot milk syrup into the eggs, constantly stirring with a whisk.
- Then back we pour everything into the pan, put it on the fire and continue stirring: cook until thick. The consistency of the resulting custard should resemble a not very thick condensed milk.
- Pour the custard into a cold container in order to stop the cooking process finally, and allow to cool. When the mass cools, the cream will thicken a little. Every 10 minutes stir to prevent the formation of a film.
- Softened butter should be beaten with a mixer. The optimum oil temperature is 20-21 degrees Celsius. It is at this temperature that the oil gives the maximum volume.

- Recommended proportions of "Charlotte" cream: one part of butter 1.4 parts of syrup.
- At the end of whipping, it's time to add vanilla extract and cognac. If you do for children, you can do without alcohol.
