Strawberry Millefeuilles (LF)

Strawberry Millefeuilles is a rich and filling dessert despite its deceptive light and airy appearance. By making creme patissiere using soy milk and using cheap margarine based store bought flakey pastry this is a super treat for my lactose-intolerant partner that's really easy to make. The strawberries can be replaced with other fresh berries such as raspberries or blueberries and whipped cream can be used in place of creme patissiere for an impressive looking quick dessert.

Strawberry Millefeuilles


3 sheets flakey pastry
400g strawberries

For soy creme patissiere
450ml soy milk
55g caster sugar
55g cornflour
3 size 6 eggs

Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius.
Place a sheet of flakey pastry on a lined baking tray.
Place a wire rack on top of the pastry.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until just brown.
Flip the sheet of pastry and bake for another 10 minutes until both sides are browned.
Remove from oven and transfer to a chopping board.
Repeat for the remaining 2 sheets of flakey pastry.

For the creme patissiere:
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into a saucepan and heat over a medium heat until thick.
Transfer to a bowl, cover with baking paper to prevent a skim forming then place int eh fridge to cool.

To assemble the Millefeuiles:
Spread half the creme patissiere over one sheet of flakey pastry.
Sprinkle with half the strawberries.
Repeat with another layer of pastry, creme patissiere then strawberries.
Place the last sheet of pastry on top and sprinkle with icing sugar.

Keep chilled for up to 6 hours before serving.
