Recipe's preparation

    Vanilla Slice
  1.  1/ Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper and place a sheet of puff pastry on each. Bake for 20 minutes or until puffed and golden. Remove from oven, cover with a clean tea towel and use your hands to push the pastry down flat. Set aside. Line a 23cm square pan with foil or baking paper to cover all sides (with enough excess hanging to easily lift out finished slice).

     3/ Add to bowl milk, cream, egg yolks, flour, and cornflour. Cook for 12 minutes, 90 degrees, speed 4

    4/ Add butter and mix for 10 seconds, speed 4.

     5/ Place one sheet of pastry into the lined tin then pour custard over. Place the remaining sheet of pastry on top of the custard, flat (unpressed) side up. Cover and refrigerate one hour or until set.

    6/When set, remove slice from tin and ice with passionfruit icing. Refrigerate 20 minutes before cutting into squares with a serrated knife.

Tip

 

Rich egg yolk custard with real vanilla bean makes for a great version of this classic favourite. Using Thermomix makes this an incredibly easy dish and produces the silkiest, creamiest custard filling ever. Adapted from Good Taste, July 2002

    OMG! I am in heaven!!! I am a custard lover and am dribbling. I have just found the only recipe I will use for custard from now on!!

    I am a newbie thermomixer and it was wonderful that these turned out perfectly.

    Thank you so much for sharing. ( I used 5 eggs and additional cornflour and they were perfect). Made them for a friends birthday..I dont know how many will actually arrive! I had to test all the corner pieces because of course they are not perfectly square!!!

    Cheers Gill

  • Perfect with some tweaks. I

    Submitted by Carina097 on 1. August 2016 - 15:11.

    Perfect with some tweaks. I used 5 x large whole eggs (50g ea) and added an extra 1.5 tbs of cornflour. The custard was amazing, I think the vanilla bean made the difference. It wasn't rubbery but nice and firm. I noticed about 10 minutes in from cooking the custard that it stopped making a sloshing noise and I could tell it had gotten nice and thick but still let it go for 2 more minutes. I'll also use this custard in other recipes like sweet scrolls etc. I wanted to share it with family to show off but my partner wouldn't let me haha

    Worked perfectly for me :)  I just increased the cornflour by 50g and it has set firm without being rubbery.  I also used the automated function on the TM5 for thick and creamy custard (6-8z) serves. Basically threw in all of the ingredients and set it to go :)

    This tasted amazing! The custard looked like it held its form until we went to cut it. Would add a gelatin sheet next time - but still, very tasty and only needs minor tweaks. My partner won't eat any other custard now!

    After reading the comments I used  6 egg yolks and 3 whole eggs plus a gelatin sheet. The custard set quite well (not as perfect as the picture though!). I will make this again as everyone loved it at work. :)

    Thanks!

    Thank you so much for this recipe! I made it for the first time last night (first time making vanilla slice too) and it is amazing. My hubby loves vanilla slice and kept buying it from the local bakery as apparently they are the best. Apparently this is now the best and I have to make it more often. Also the custard, smooth, creamy and beautiful, I will not be making any other custard again, just this one :) yum

    Divine. I had setting issues too but I just warned people to eat it with a spoon. I substituted the icing for the standard pink stuff. The office devoured it.

    Submitted by natwin on 27. May 2014 - 17:35.

    as I was short on time I put mine in the freezer to set. It seemed to work. Almost like an icecream slice however it thawed very very quickly and turned to slop once put onto a plate. I also found the icing was quite grainy/powdery texture and that recipe was followed exactly.

  • Hi KJ7,  I'm so sorry to hear

    Submitted by Anne-Marie on 9. February 2014 - 16:07.

    Hi KJ7,  I'm so sorry to hear about the problems you experienced making the vanilla slice. I'm not sure why this would have been the case given many others have had success with it as you can read in the comments below. Did you do anything differently or substitute any ingredients? Also wondering if it didn't have long enough to set, or didn't get cold enough in the fridge?

  • The taste was great but it

    Submitted by KJ7 on 2. February 2014 - 20:34.

    The taste was great but it all fell apart! The custard did not set nor did the passionfruit icing. everything stuck to the baking paper which ripped while trying to get it out. A lot of time wasted when this recipe just did not work for me, so disappointing cause the taste was there. Any suggestions on how to make this properly would be great

    Submitted by Polly1956 on 28. November 2012 - 21:48.

    I made this to take to a friends house.  I used 5 whole eggs but probably needed a bit more cornflour or a bit of gelatine to make it set better. I used tinned passion fruit for the icing. Will probably leave the butter out next time. Everyone though it was yummy. Will definitely make it again.

    Mmmmm delicious. 

    I tweaked to be less wastage: used 4 whole eggs in the custard. Also I used 30g sachet of gelatine mixed with a small amount of hot water & poured this mixture in after Step 4. Quickly mixed in for 2 seconds. It was perfect.

    Submitted by ThermoMum - Jude Blake on 20. August 2012 - 09:48.

    Despite forgetting to add the butter at the end, this worked beautifully. I added about two teaspoons of vanilla bean paste in place of the vanilla bean, and had to omit the passionfruit in the icing (fussy husband!) but was amazed at how it held its form. It was approved by one and all. I'll be sharing this one! :-)

  • Re: Runny custard.... I use

    Submitted by Anne-Marie on 21. May 2012 - 16:21.

    Re: Runny custard....

    I use jumbo-sized home grown eggs and I am wondering if this is why my mixture always turns out thick enough while others have had problems! You can try using 6 egg yolks and 3 whole eggs if using smaller sized eggs. Also, add an extra tablespoon of cornflour for a thicker result.  And yes - step 3 should be at speed 4, don't know where the number has disappeared to! Thanks for all your comments and suggestions.

    Submitted by Jen B on 29. April 2012 - 17:19.

    Trying this now, added 30g extra custard powder as I read all comments about the soft texture of the filling. Also added 2 tspn gelatine softened in little water. No cream in the house, so all milk & used 4 whole eggs to save wasted whites & keep cost down.

     

    Having fun with my new kitchen hand!

    Made it today..  Tasted great. In step 3 it doesn't say what speed so I did speed 4.  Also any tips on how to make the custard set.  Mine was thick but didn't set.  I added a sachet of gelatin with some hot water during the mixing but this didn't set it....
