Well then…! I guess I’ll have to stay serious about this if you’re riding my coat tails!
Yeah, it’s a little eggy and it doesn’t seem to require quite as long of a step as other custards which is a plus. I’m hoping for an egg-based cheesecake rather than a gelatin thickened instant type, so I think the slight egginess should fit into the recipe well.
Hopefully you enjoy it if you’re mixing it! I think it tastes pretty good already, so as long as it doesn’t take a weird turn somewhere after steeping it should be vapeable even if it doesn’t end up being a cheesecake.
I think that’s a good idea and would probably fit better here. I already made a second version with cream fresh since the first is very sweet and a little powdered sugar-y. I’m hoping that it will moisten up with more steeping as the custards have time to develope. But I’ll go ahead and make a third version with sweet cream to steep alongside the other two.
This is what I’m banking on. 3% might push it too far into icing territory (I’ll find out with my second version since I used 3% in it), so I’ll try reducing it back down to 2% with the sweet cream and see how it goes.
