Crema Inglesa (TM)

From Cookipedia

This is a translation of a recipe in Salsas y Aliños con Thermomix (Susaeta Ediciones) and is very similar to custard.



  1. Add the ingredients to the TM and cook 8 minutes / 90° / Speed 4.
  2. The result should be a light sauce, but a little creamy.
  3. Pour it into a bowl and keep stirring with a wooden spoon until it has completely cooled, to avoid it forming a skin.

Serving suggestions

This is similar to the custard used in pastries but is much lighter and less dense. It has many uses: use it to decorate dishes and also a basis for ice creams and mousses.


It can be made with different flavours by adding chocolate, caramel, coffee etc to the milk.

Chef's Notes

To save stirring the sauce for ages, just cover it with cling-film to prevent skin formation.
