The pastry cream is one of the essential in pastry, so it is normal that when we want to make a cake or any other sweet, it is one of the first ingredients that we visualize for the filling.

Although the classic is practically the same as the Catalan cream (you can access the recipe here ), we love the fruity sweetness of the orange pastry cream, and this is precisely what we want to teach you to do today.

The orange , in addition to providing a sweet and citrus touch to the cream, also allows us to benefit from its nutrients, specifically its content in vitamins A and C , folic acid , phosphorus and potassium .

Below you can see how easy it is to make this pastry cream so that, in addition to being able to enjoy a different cream, you can count on the surprise factor when trying your favorite sweets 😉
