This easy recipe for Faux Pastry Cream makes a darn good “pastry cream” in under 10 minutes. It’s great for a last minute dessert.
I almost always have some heavy cream on hand since it has such a long shelf life… and I also keep pudding mix and milk on hand also… so throwing this together is quick and easy and can be used in so many dessert recipes.
I recommend you use whole milk … it makes a creamier pudding base for this.
