Nuna’s Ultimate Mock cream delight..


1 cup milk
2  heaped Tblsp maizena
Enough milk to make a paste with the maizena(not too thick)
125g butter
⅔ cup castor sugar(or a little less if too sweet)
1 tsp vanilla essence..

Bring the milk to boil
Pour the paste in slowly & beat whilst pouring.
Beat about a minute until it thickens(not too thick nor runny)
Take it off the heat and let it get cold..
I put the whole saucepan in a bowl of cold water

Beat butter until white.. about 10 mins
Add the castor sugar a little at a time. Beating well in between adding until all castor is used up.

Beat another 5 minutes.
Add vanilla and beat.
then add the cold milk mixtures a big spoon at a time whilst beating.. use all the milk mixture..
It should look like a creamy custard.
And trust me, the taste is another level of awesome!!
It’s a cross between a custard and ice cream and fresh cream.

Pipe cupcakes and decorate with sprinkles.
