Buttercream Made With Egg Yolks

First time trying making buttercream with egg yolks and the results turn out very well ~ smooth & creamy! :D :D Quite easy steps except the stage whereby need to heat up the yolk mixture, which I afraid that I will scrambled up the mixture, other then this the rest of the steps is a breeze :D





Recipe Adapted from 'I Love Marcrons' by Hisako Ogita
Ingredient

  • 100gm unsalted butter
  • 50ml milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 40gm sugar
Method
  1. Soften butter and stir it till it becomes smooth and creamy like mayonnaise. (Do Not Melt The Butter!!)
  2. Combine egg yolks & sugar in a mixing bowl, whisk till pale & thick.
  3. Transfer egg yolk mixture into a small saucepan together with the milk. Simmer over low heat till thick and creamy..(Be Careful Not to Scrambled The Mixture!)
  4. Transfer above mixture into mixing bowl and whip with a electric whisk until pale & thick. When you can draw a clear line on spatula (refer to pic above), it has reached its right consistency.
  5. Add in softened butter in 3 batches and beat till thicken and hold its shape. Ready to be used as topping.
  6. Chilled buttercream to be thawed and stir till creamy before using.

Looks very smooth! Should try one day. Wonder will the buttercream set(firm up) in the fridge once apply on cake/ cupcake? Thinking of apply this cream on cupcake and proceed with the 'picture transfer'(As shown in my blog). Thanks!
