PASSION FRUIT VANILLA SLICE

 

Makes 10

Prep and cooking time: 1 hr

(+refrigeration and cooling time)

• 3 sheets puff pastry, just thawed

• 1.25 litres (5 cups) milk

• 1 medium (140g) lemon

• 1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla extract

• 12 egg yolks

• 1 cup (220g) castor sugar

2/3 cup (100g) cornflour

• 100g butter, chopped, softened

• 11/2 cups (240g) icing sugar mixture

• 2 passion fruits (granadillas)

 

1. Preheat the oven to 220°C (200°C

fan-forced). Line an oven tray with

baking paper.

2. Place one sheet of pastry on the tray

and prick with a fork; top with a sheet

of baking paper and another oven

tray. Bake for 20 min or until golden

brown. Repeat with remaining sheets.

3. Place the milk in a saucepan. Peel

six strips of rind thinly from the lemon,

avoiding the pith. Split the vanilla

bean lengthways and scrape out seeds.

Add vanilla bean and seeds or extract

to milk. Bring to the boil and remove

from heat. Strain into a jug.

4. Using an electric mixer, beat the

egg yolks and sugar for 3 min, or until

pale and thick. Add cornflour and beat

until combined.

5. Beat half the hot milk into the eggs

on low speed. Return the egg mixture

to the saucepan with the remaining

 milk and bring just to the boil,

whisking constantly – the custard will

thicken considerably. Lower the heat

and cook 2-3 min, beating constantly

and making sure the custard doesn’t

catch and burn. Remove from heat and

continue to beat to release heat. Cool

to ‘blood temperature’ (a little warmer

than room temperature). Beat in butter.

6.  Place one pastry sheet on a baking

paper-lined board; spread with half the

custard. Repeat layers with remaining

pastry sheets and custard. Cover, and

refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

7.  Sift icing sugar into a large bowl;

stir in passion fruit pulp. Add 1 tsp

water to make a spreadable consistency.

Spread over slice; refrigerate until firm.

8.  To serve, cut into 10 pieces using

a serrated knife.
