    Unfortunately this recipe was terrible Cry I'm a huge fan of Vanilla Slice and was super excited to make it. The custard was so rubbery - I couldn't even finish my first bite. I even reduced the 2nd lot of cooking time to 4.5 minutes. Would not recommend this recipe.

    Perfect! I made this today for the first time and rapt that it worked so well and was so easy. After reading all of the comments I also made some changes. They are shown in brackets. The custard was firm enough to stay in place yet was lovely and creamy. Thanks for sharing your great recipe.

    2 sheets ready rolled puff pastry
    200g (100g) raw sugar
    100g (50g) cornflour

    1000g full cream milk

  • I reduced cornflour to 65g

    Submitted by LEAGEARZ on 10. September 2016 - 10:29.

    I reduced cornflour to 65g and reduced final cook time to 4 1/2 min. I also used 4 passion fruit and then had to increase the icing sugar so that it wasn't too runny. 

    Yum!!! Everyone loved it. I think the custard was possibly a little rubbery, but was still delicious.

    Submitted by Sashap83 on 7. August 2016 - 08:13.

    Terrible. Was so hard and rubbery it was disgusting. I followed suggestions to lessen cornflour and cook for less time but it is still terrible. A waste of ingredients.

  • Thanks placebo00 for your

    Submitted by Nblueeyes on 5. July 2016 - 16:28.

    Thanks placebo00 for your tip.

    I also reduced the cornflour to 65g and decreased final cook time to 4.5 minutes.  I still found the custard quite firm/rubbery. Perhaps next time ill decrease cornflour to 50gs.

     

    Icing : i thought i was being smart and replaced the boiling water with passionfruit. Didn't quite set but i love the extra passionfruit taste.

     

    Overall....i did enjoy my vanilla slice and ill probably make it again. Quick & simple recipe tmrc_emoticons.)

    Delicious!! so easy to make. Custard a bit rubbery but Not of real concern. Nice and easy to do! It was horrible having to wait so long for it to set and then ice... We tried it as soon as I put the icing on

    Submitted by NannyShell on 29. November 2015 - 20:52.

    Wow, really surprised how easy this was, only cooked custard for 4 1/2 mins, set beautifully and tasted good and sliced really well! loved the icing. I did use vanilla extract instead of bean paste, as it was all I had,  and would just add more next time, but will definitely make again  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Followed the recipe excatly, but it turned out too solid. Almost rubbery.

    Maybe not so much custard powder next time...?
