Step-by-Step Easy & Quick Recipe –

Prep Time           Cook Time        Total Time            Yields

30 mins                 30 mins             60 mins               9 Slices


Frozen puff pastry dough – 2 (thawed)

Confectioner’s sugar – for dusting

Pastry cream – see recipe under the “Cakes & Patisserie” section.


  • Preheat oven to 200° (400°F). Now roll out each pastry sheet to blend the seam lines and lightly score & mark them into 9 sections without cutting them thru. Sandwich each pastry sheet under 2 pieces of parchment paper and 2 cooling racks to keep the pastry flat yet flaky. Bake for 15 minutes then remove the top rack and top sheet of parchment paper. Replace the rack and back and back for 15 minutes till it becomes golden & crispy thru out. Take out and cool it.
  • Using a 13×9 inch mould place one layer of cooked puff pastry at the bottom of the pan, pour hot pastry cream over it and then put another layer of puff pastry, refrigerate until set.
  • Take out and cut into 9 pieces. Dust each piece with confectioner’s sugar. Serve.

Note: Delicious mouth watering cream cake is ready. If you like thick layer of filling then add extra pastry cream. Instead of pastry puff you can use cake too. Enjoy!

Happy Baking!!
