No-effort Dairy Cream

Makes 6 portions.


  • 1L milk
  • 65g maïzena (fine corn flour)
  • 150g sugar
  • Optionally, 50g to 200g liquid cream, as you want
  • Flavour. E.g.:
    • Coffee in some soluble form
    • Spices: vanilla, cinnamon, clove, or to taste
    • Orange blossom water
    • 30ml amaretto, advocaat, coffee liqueur


  1. Place milk, maïzena, sugar, and vanilla in Thermomix, set to 90℃, 18 minutes, speed 4.

  2. After 10 minutes, reduce speed to 2. No need to set a timer (unless you want to): you’ll hear the noise change as the texture shifts!

  3. Add the flavour, optional liquid cream, and give it a whirl at speed 3 for at least 30 seconds.

  4. Leave it running while you prep your ramekins or bolinettes, then pour.

  5. Clean your thermomix immediately (better now than later, trust me).

  6. Once your creams have cooled down enough, fridge all but one. Eat that one warm. You know you want to.

After two hours they’ll be good eatingstuff, for you or yours!
