Chocolate Pastry Cream

Although we have a pudding pictured, this was originally intended to be piped into the centre of doughnuts or profiteroles and that is how it works best.

However, you heard it here first, go ahead and use it as if was a chocolate pudding.

Place sugar and chocolate into the Thermomix bowl and mill 20 sec/speed 9. Scrape down sides of the bowl.


Add remaining ingredients, except butter and cook 10 min/90°C/speed 4.


Add butter and blend 10 sec/speed 6.


Pour into a glass/ceramic dish and cover with plastic wrap or baking paper, pushing the wrap down onto the top of the custard to form a cartouche.


Cool completely in the fridge before piping into the centre of profiteroles. Alternatively it does work as a chocolate pudding whip. Cue the cream!
