Preparation time: 30 min
Ready in: 30 min
FOR THE CREAM
500 ml of milk
100 gr of flour
120 gr of sugar
1 sachet of vanillin
Zest of one lemon
2 spoons of milk
1. Preparation of Fried Cream
First we heat the milk in a saucepan with the lemon zest. In another pot we break the eggs, add the sugar and mix with the whisk. We add the flour, vanillin and continue to mix, until any small lumps are eliminated.
When the milk is hot, we remove the lemon peel and pour it flush, continuing to mix with the whisk, in the pot.
Continuing to mix with the whisk, we put the pan on the stove and cook the cream for about 5-6 minutes, since it has thickened, paying attention and avoiding that the cream burns, we use a thick-bottomed pan.
Once the cream is cooked, pour it on the floured work surface, levelling it with a spatula, to form a rectangle. Now cover with plastic wrap and let it rest until it has cooled completely.
After the necessary time, we cut the cream into 2 cm cubes with a knife.
We prepare the breading, break the eggs in a bowl, add two to three tablespoons of milk and beat the eggs with a fork. In another bowl, we prepare the flour and in another the breadcrumbs.
We pass the cream cubes first in the bowl with the flour, then in the beaten eggs and finally in the breadcrumbs.
We bring a pot over the heat and heat some oil for frying. When the oil is hot, fry the cubes of cream until golden brown, a couple of minutes of cooking will be enough. The oil for frying to perfection must be at about 170 degrees but, if we do not have a kitchen thermometer to check the oil temperature and obtain perfect frying, we can do the classic “toothpick test”. We dip a long toothpick in the oil and, when many small bubbles will form on the tip of our toothpick, the oil will be ready for frying.
Once the fried cream is ready, drain it on absorbent paper, helping us with a slotted spoon and bring it to the table!
