I found a recipe on allrecipes.com to make pastry cream because I wanted to finish some milk I have that will expire soon. We don't usually drink fresh milk at home because we prefer soy milk. So, if I buy milk for baking, the rest may end up going to waste... :(
So, I really like the pastry cream that I made, and I want to make some more. But I have used up all the milk. Can I substitute instant milk for regular milk? We keep powder milk at home because I use it to make bread.
Here's the recipe:
- 2 cups milk
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise
- 6 egg yolks
- 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 pinch salt
I should be able to make milk from the powder, and use that instead, right?
Thanks in advance!
