➡️ Tips For The French Pastry Cream Recipe 🔎

Vanilla cake recipes are without a doubt one of the most popular homemade cake recipes. That’s because vanilla is the most popular cake flavor and everyone loves it.

I love vanilla cakes of any kind! That’s why I often bake all kinds of homemade vanilla cakes, with or without cream. Vanilla cream-filled cakes are definitely one of my favorite things in my family, so I have to make such cakes frequently.

Among the vanilla cream cakes I make most often are cremeschnitte, choux-a-la-crème, eclairs, and so on.

You probably know, there are different ways to make vanilla cream filling. Some recipes are based on French custard recipes, others are simpler and can even be made from vanilla pudding.

The vanilla custard for cakes featured on this page is based on a traditional French pastry cream recipe. It’s a basic cream for cream-filled cakes that I use most often when making eclairs, choux-a-la-crème, and profiteroles.

Depending on the cake you are going to make, it’s advisable to use the filling with or without gelatin. The vanilla cream recipe available on this page does not contain gelatin, so it’s pretty moist and flows quite easily from the cake.

If you are looking for a thicker and firmer cream to fill your cakes, follow the link in the section below. I use that recipe for heavier homemade cake recipes, like the classic cremeschnitte.

Regardless of the pastry cream recipe you choose, each one is very tasty and will help you make a fantastic cake at home, which will please both your family and friends!

Enjoy both French custard and French pastry cream, as well as the homemade cake recipes you make with them!
