Drop the milk down to 1 1/4 cups and it will turn out much better. I used 1 1/2 cups the first time around and the cream was too runny. Second time, with 1 1/4 was perfect. More like the vanilla cream in her video. Otherwise, best pastry cream to date.
I followed the directions and found that this was very simple and I was surprised that all the ingredients were stocked in my kitchen. Very yummy
