Desserts and Fruit
- 4 cups milk
- 6 oz all-purpose flour
- 1 ¾ oz cornstarch
- 7 oz granulated sugar
- 8 egg yolks
- lemon zest, grated
- 6 cups frying oil
- 4 egg whites
- 5 oz breadcrumbs
45 minutes preparation + 5 minutes cooking
Mix the egg yolks and the sugar.
Pour in about 100gr of milk and heat the rest in the meantime.
Blend in the cornstarch, add the flour and mix everything well.
Add the grated lemon to the heated milk and pour into the mixture. Blend the mixture with the hot milk and mix over the heat.
Lay the custard in a Gastronorm baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.
Spread the custard with the aid of a spatula and allow to cool. Finally cover with the remaining oven paper.
When the custard has become cool, cut it into squares.
Coat the custard squares with a layer of egg white and then the bread crumbs.
Fry the squares obtained in a frying pan in preheated oil.
All the ingredients must be well mixed, so use a whisk to avoid lumps. It is also possible to flavor the custard with orange peel.
Always fry in very hot olive oil and turn each square of fried custard quickly, so as to brown both sides uniformly.
Instead of the film, it is possible to put bread crumbs on the base of the baking tray.
