Awesome Armaretto custard filling

I made this and everybody thought it was awesome! I get lots of compliments and hubby will eat it like pudding.
Lemon or vanilla flavoring can be used too.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup milk
2 TB plus 1 tsp.  Cornstarch
3/4 cup White sugar
1/2 cup Water
4 egg yolks beaten
1 tsp. Almond extract
1 tsp. Armaretto like Disarano liquor

DIRECTIONS

Mix milk, cornstarch, sugar in a medium sauce pan
Add water & beaten egg yolks gradually.

Cook over medium heat till thick and bubbly.  Stir constantly.
When it gets to the rapid boil(bubbly) cook for one minute longer.
Remove from heat and add almond and Armaretto.  Stir using a wisk.
Cover with plastic wrap touching the filling to prevent a film whe cooling Znd let cool completely. I put mine in the fridge.

sounds lovely. is it stable enough to use with a sculpted cake...like a shopping bag cake? Do I need to use a dam of buttercream with it? Thanks!

I font know how stable it is for a sculpted creme . You will need a good thick BC dam for it. Hope you try it its yummy.

How long does it stay good in the refrigerator? Just wondering if it can be made days ahead or not? I'm excited to try it. Sounds amazing. : )

ok, totally new here and have figured out many of the acronyms used here, but still haven't been able to figure out what WASC stands for...sigh. I'm going to be making this filling for one of my cakes, but would love to know what the WASC is so I can perhaps use that cake instead :) Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

Do you think this would be good with a German Choc Marble cake? The recipe I'm using already has almond in the cake so not sure if this would be overkill or not. Thanks.

Ok sounds wonderful, but have a few questions... Anyone ever pair up with fruit? If so,, did u mix in or slice fruit up and lay on top? can this filling be left out in room temperature (78 degrees) or does it have to go in fridge? Please advise!!!

Vick61 As SuicideBlonde said, it is a White Almond Sour Cream Cake. If you go to the recipes link and then click on the Most Saved recipes link on the upper right side of the page, the WASC cake recipe will probably be at the top of the list. It is absolutely amazing! I'm a totally from scratch gal, and I can't get over how good this is! It is definitely a new favorite!

Help!? Anyone know how many cups this makes or covers? I'm making a large tiered cake and would like to make enough for it in one batch. I'm headed out to the liquor store now to buy the Amaretto. Thanks!

Hi Mareg, This filling sounds great!! I have just one question: how long do you think I can keep a cake, filled with this filling, at room temperature? Or does the cake needs to be refrigerated most of the time? Thank you for sharing the recipe!!

I use this all the time in boston creme pie (cakes). Only instead of the almond flavorings I use the traditional vanilla and a tablespoon of butter stirred in at the end. The butter gives it a rich and very delicious flavor.

merci pour toutes ces recettes je suis française mais avec le traducteur je parcours souvent vos délicieuses pages avec plaisir mais j aimerais pour plus de faciliter dans les recettes que les équivalents de quantité soient données en français car je ne peux pas faire vos recettes merci aussi pour tous les tutos et les images fabuleuses . Cordialement Hélène

Would this be too sweet to just use as filling for a small pie crust cup?  Size of a mini cup cake

  Thanks,

i love the sound of the filling, I am doing a tiered wedding cake for the 4th of July weekend

My question is how long will it stay and do you think it will travel well

I live in Texas and the venue is in Missouri it will be about a 5 hour trip from where I live
