Solar recipe: vanilla creams

Usually, the secret to successful vanilla creams is to bake them in a bain-marie in an oven that’s not too hot (150°C). In a solar box oven that reaches a maximum of 130°C, it’s even simpler: you put them straight in…and wait a little longer without fear of burning them.

Recipe suggested by : Linda LouisSolar oven : box type,SunTaste – Preparation time : 20 mn – Cooking time : 1h

Ingredients for 12 small creams

  • 6 egg yolks
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 200 g cane sugar
  • 40 g cornstarch
  • 500 ml fluid cream
  • 500 ml milk
  • 1 vanilla pod, split in half or 1 tsp. to c. liquid vanilla extract

Preparing the vanilla creams

  • Preheat the solar cooker.
  • Split the vanilla pod lengthwise and remove the seeds with the tip of a knife. Place the pod and seeds in a large saucepan.
  • Add the milk and cream and bring gently to the boil (in a solar or gas oven, whichever you prefer).
  • Whisk the eggs, sugar and cornflour in a bowl until the mixture whitens.
  • Add the boiling milk and whisk briskly. Remove the vanilla pod.
  • Pour the cream into individual ramekins. Arrange them in a large, shallow, black dish.
  • Bake for 1h15-1h30, then leave to cool before putting the creams in the oven.

Enjoy your meal!
