Chocolate Pastry Cream Recipe – Another Easy Recipe …
Dessert recipes are the best recipes in the world. Well, okay, if you don’t like sugar or chocolate, you won’t. But in my opinion, most people love sugar and chocolate and moreover, dessert recipes. So for you today I decided to share with you my personal chocolate pastry cream recipe.
In short, I recognize that I am not objective. So, to reconcile all tastes, we are going to agree on one point: there are dessert recipes that use honey, even dates, to obtain this necessary sweetness.
But this remains relative, because according to some beliefs, a dessert corresponds to “the last dish served during a meal” and “it is typically composed of sweet ingredients”. That is to say, a dessert is not necessarily sweet, and it could even be a dessert. So, there are dessert recipes for everyone!
We can discuss widely around the name of a chocolate without sugar, a good recipe for a rather sweet cake with honey, even a natural yogurt with fruit. But I prefer to show you one of my favorite dessert recipes, especially if they are quick and easy desserts.

4 Good Reasons to Eat Dessert Every Day …
Eating sugary foods in a reasonable way is not necessarily bad for your health or your line, according to several studies.
4 good reasons to eat dessert every day
- Provides energy for the day
- It protects your health
- It limits snacking
- And it motivates yourself to practice sports
So, if you’re looking for a few good reasons (or excuses) to go crazy for dessert at the end of a meal, you’ve come to the right place. Here is why science suggests that a piece of chocolate cake is not bad for your health, on the contrary:
Reason #1: It provides energy for the day
Starting the morning with a breakfast containing some sweet foods would be a good way to stay in shape. According to a study conducted by researchers at Tel Aviv University on 200 adults, people who eat sweets in the morning are less hungry during the rest of the day. Scientists believe that consuming more calories in the morning gives the body the energy it needs to function well until the evening.
Reason #2: It protects your health
It’s no longer a secret: dark chocolate, rich in cocoa, is good for your health. Consuming a few squares each day provides antioxidant nutrients to reduce the risk of hypertension, strengthen the immune system, fight against inflammation and lower the risk of cardiovascular accidents. It is the American and Swedish researchers who say so, so we can listen to their advice and eat a few grams of dark chocolate daily without feeling guilty.
Reason #3: It limits snacking
Do you have sweet cravings? It does not matter, you can crack. Studies have proven that it is better to eat a piece of cake when you want it than to deprive yourself and crack on an entire bar of caramel chocolate or a package of candies. By consciously choosing to indulge in a reasonable way, and by consuming this food in full awareness, we avoid snacking during the day. Not to mention the fact that a homemade cake will always be healthier than a product from the distributor, stuffed with additives and preservatives.
Reason #4: It motivates yourself to practice sports
Making the decision to help yourself to dessert can help motivate you to be more physically active throughout the day, reports Reader’s Digest. In this way, we are win-wins: we can indulge ourselves during the meal and, without feeling guilty, we burn fat by exercising later.
Feel better now? So enjoy your chocolate pastry cream recipe.

Hello and thank you for sharing this recipe that looks quick, easy, and tasty! I am not based in the same part of the world as you, so I’ve got to make some adjustments to the measurements, which should be pretty standard. Quick question though, what is “caster” sugar? In my local stores, we have granulated sugar (white table sugar), powdered sugar, and brown sugar. Do you think it is one of these or something that is only available in select regions?
Thanks very much for your comment Aly.
Caster, or castor, sugar is a type of fine granulated sugar that’s widely available in the United Kingdom. It’s not quite as common in the United States, though you can find it in some baking aisles under the name “superfine sugar.” Its texture is somewhere between regular granulated sugar and confectioners’ sugar.
Then, 100 gr = 3.52 oz
Hope this helps you and happy baking.
