Pastry Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
This pastry cream has an okay taste, but the consistency is way off. I always strain my pastry cream before folding in the butter, and first it didn't thicken on the stove, so I tried to see if I kept it on for a minute to boil (still whisking) it would thicken.. it didn't. So I strained it and then folded in the butter. After a few minutes cooling on the counter with plastic wrap on the top, it started to get lumpy. As a baking and pastry culinary student, I will continue using the recipe I was given from my chef instructor. Also I have never heard of anyone adding any egg white to pastry cream..

Marble Cake I

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
I made this recipe to the "t", but it came out very dry and unflavorful. There's definitely not enough cocoa powder for the chocolate part, and the ratio of vanilla to chocolate wasn't even. Also, it was dry and seemed like more of a muffin/biscuit crumb than cake.
