The mille-feuille (French pronunciation: ​[mil fœj], “a thousand leaves”),[notes 1] vanilla slice, custard slice, also known as the Napoleon, is a French pastry . When I was young, I use to loveeee cream buns and tompouce/ napoleon cake. Its delicious and creamy!

This is our way of making Napoleon cake. It’s easy, simple and tasty!

Time: 40 minutes

You will need :

  • 2 Puff pastry sheets
  • Icing sugar
  • Vanilla Pudding mix
  • Milk or liquid cream
  • optional: pink colouring

Directions:

  1. Prepare your oven to bake the puff pastry
  2. Follow the instructions on your puff pastry package
  3. Let it cool to room temperature
  4. Make the vanilla pudding according to the instructions on your mix (instead of milk, I normally use cream)
  5. When finished with the pudding, let it cool for 5 min and then pour it over 1 sheet of the baked puff pastry.
  6. Put the 2nd sheet on top and now it is ready to glaze.
  7. To make the glaze, u need 2 cups of icing sugar and milk or / liquid cream.
  8. put the icing sugar in a bowl and add just 1tbps of cream or milk.
  9. Pour the glaze mixture over the top and voila!

Let it set for 2 hours, if you can wait that long 🙂

and bon appetit!

Good luck and YUMs away!!

Sweets - Desserts

Many people have requested the recipe of this  delicious dessert.. So here below you can find what I have done.

Because it is very hard to make choux dough eggfree, I use puff pastry to replace it. I will try other eggfree choux recipes soon to make it from scratch. But I assure you using puff pastry as a replacement is also very tasty and easy.

First I buy 1  sheet ready-made (eggfree ofcourse) puff pastry

Make round balls and put them in a muffin tin.

1 sheet makes around 8 choux balls.

After forming the balls, I put them in the oven, for 30-40 min on 200 degrees celsius and VOILA!

You let let them cool down. In the meantime u can melt chocolate to top the choux balls and when the balls are cooled down cut them in two and fill it with whipped cream. Last but not least dip the top of the choux ball in the melted chocolate.

And you are done!

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (plain or flavored)

How to Make It?

1 Heat the oven to 400°F.

3 Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 12-inch square. Cut into 16 (3-inch) squares. Brush edges of the squares with water. Place about 1 tablespoon spinach mixture in the center of each square. Fold the pastry over the filling to form triangles. Press the edges to seal. Place the filled pastries onto a baking sheet.
