  • 1/2 cup of sugar

Step-by-Step Process to Make Mille Feuille Cake

Step #1

Set your oven to 400°F (200°C).

Step #2

Roll each sheet of puff pastry to about 1/8 inch thick. Cut each sheet into three equal rectangles. Place the rectangles on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Poke holes in the pastry with a fork so that it does not rise too much during baking.

Step #3

Bake the dough for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and has risen. When it’s ready, take it out of the oven and let it cool completely.

Step #4

While the dough is baking, prepare the pastry cream. In a medium saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat until it begins to boil.

Step #5

Take a separate bowl, and add egg yolks, sugar, and cornstarch. Mix them well until the mixture becomes smooth.

Step #6

Slowly pour the hot milk into the egg yolk mixture. Keep stirring continuously to prevent the eggs from curdling.

Step #7

Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and heat over medium heat. Don’t stop stirring. Continue stirring until it thickens and comes to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.

Step #8

Shift the pastry cream to a mixing bowl and cover the surface with plastic wrap to prevent it from forming. Let it cool to room temperature.

Step #9

Once the pastry cream has cooled, assemble the mill-feuille. Place one rectangle of puff pastry on a plate or serving dish. Spread a layer of pastry cream over the top, then place another rectangle of puff pastry on top.

Step #10

Repeat with another layer of pastry cream and puff pastry until you have used all the pastry and cream, ending with a layer of puff pastry on top.

Step #11

Keep the serving place with the cake in the refrigerator and cool it down for at least 2 hours. It helps to set the pastry cream.

Step #12

Before serving, sprinkle the top of the mille-feuille cake with powdered sugar. Cut with a sharp knife and enjoy a round of deliciousness!
