How to prepare the recipe: "Custard":
Pour the milk into a pot, add a pinch of vanillin or grated lemon zest, boil, turn off the heat.
Into another pot beat the yolks with the sugar, add the flour a little by little always beating until the mixture is well mixed.
Dilute a little by little, and always stirring, with the hot boiling milk.
Place on the heat, keep on stirring and simmer for 3-4- minutes.
Remove from heat, pour the cream into a bowl and let it cool stirring occasionally, so that no film forms on the surface
Custard is used to stuff puffs (beignets), profiteroles, cannoncini and many other cakes.
Flour makes it a little more consistent but less delicate than the crème anglaise.
