    Pass the mixture through a sifter back to the saucepan. Keep whisking it over medium heat until it starts bubbling and thickens. Take it off the heat and whisk in the butter.

  • Step 5

    Cover the custard with plastic wrap, pressing the plastic directly against the surface of the custard to avoid a skin forming. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until completely cooled.

Doughnut: 4 Steps

    Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough out to about 1/2 thick.

  • Step 2

    Use a round cookie cutter and cut the dough with it. Cover the doughnuts with a towel and let them rise for another 30 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Heat the oil in a skillet or large pot to 350F. Carefully place the round doughs into the hot oil, working in batches. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until gold brown.

    Fill a piping bag with pastry cream. Fill each doughnut from the side with pastry cream.

  • Step 2

    In a small saucepan add sugar and water, bring it to boil. Once the mixture starts boiling, reduce the heat to medium. Give the pan a gentle swirl occasionally, until it turns golden. Take the pan off the heat and swirl the pan until the color deepens slightly.

  • Step 3

    Work very carefully and dip the top of each doughnut into the caramel. Then place the doughnut aside and let it cool.

  • Step 4
