Passion fruit custard (natilla de maracuyá)










I can say that this passionfruit custard is absolutely wonderful. 
But .. I hope you are lucky enough that no one is asking you, Mama is ready? Mama is already cold the  dessert? 
(I told them I could not cut it until it was cold) 
After ... ahh not even take out the photos? 
Nope I say. 
I feel guelty of course!
Finally I cut it and for this doesn't look perfect and  must reiterate that it is better to wait before cutting!

Canola oil for greasing pan

1 egg plus 3 yolks lightly beaten
1 cup whole milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Natilla de Maracuya











Cuando vi por primera vez esta receta pensé que era un Pie! pero luego al leer la receta me di cuenta que era como un pie sin masa.
Super liviano y delicioso se puede hacer perfectamente con la pulpa congelada de maracuyá que se puede encontrar en los supermercados.
Generalmente esta junto con los frutos rojos congelados.
Esta deliciosa receta es de Saveur
Solo aconsejo respetar los tiempos para que esté bien frio cuando se corte para servir.

Ingredientes
Para la crema o custard

aceite para el molde
3/4 taza de azúcar
1 huevo más tres yemas ligeramente batidos
1 taza de leche entera
1 tarro de leche condensada
1/3 taza de pulpa de maracuyá fresca o congelada

Para el syrup o jarabe
1/3 taza de azúcar
1/2 taza de pulpa de maracuyá congelada

  24. Glorita linda! Este custard va a ser un éxito total, de puro ver la receta ya se me está haciendo agua la boca. Los hijos pueden llegar a sabotear las fotos en cualquier momento, así que yo prefiero ni anunciar lo que estoy haciendo, luego voy más tempranito y hago las fotos antes de la hora en que se van a comer el plato, más si se trata de postres!! son tremendos, jejeje! Besitos
