Kashta cream recipe

Preparation Time: 65 min
Cooking Time: 10 min
Number of servings: 8

Ashta is a thick cream that is used as a filling cream in a large number of Lebanese desserts. It can also be eaten alone with honey, jam or jelly.

ingredients

2 cups milk
2 cups whipping cream
6 slices American-style white bread
5 tablespoons cornstarch, dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water
2 cups milk
2 cups whipping cream
6 slices American-style white bread
5 tablespoons cornstarch, dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water

cooking method
 

1. Cut off the edges of the bread. Discard.

2. Cut the soft white part in dices then place them in a saucepan and pour the milk and whipping cream over them. Let the bread dices soak in the milk and cream mixture for at least 1 hr, or more if possible, in the refrigerator.

3. Put the saucepan on medium heat and start stirring with a wooden spoon the bread and milk mixture. Once the milk starts heating, add the water-dissolved cornstarch. Continue stirring until the mixture thickens.

4. Once done, pour in a bowl and leave it to cool. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and place the cream in the refrigerator in order to thicken before using it.
