Pretty in pink….an american romantic comedy film, starring Molly Ringwald, often dressed in pink. It is the first title I thought, thinking about this spring tart, with all shades of this color. A strawberries custard, then a strawberries mousse and a light lychees mousse: love at first sight.
A very simple tart, but really delicious. Shortcrust pastry has been unflavored with lemon zest and juice, but if you prefer, you can use cinnamon. Once you arrange the apple slices in the tart shell, a rich and creamy custard is then poured over the apples and the tart is baked until the custard has set. So, nothing difficult to prepare, but you will get a gorgeous tart.
A creamy, stunning and gorgeous dessert, perfectly balanced with white peaches and blueberries. To moisten the sponge, I choose a blueberry home made compote, but you can use store bought jam. The dessert is not difficult to prepare, plan the steps and everything will be easier.
Everyone loves cheesecake….. It can be prepared baked or unbaked, it can be flavored and is often served topped with fruit, chocolate or whipped cream. Usa dedicate one special day to this famous dessert: National Cheesecake Day is observed annually on July 30th. The cheesecake I offer you, is a rare dessert, with a juicy and jelly raspberries layer inside. You can find a lemon crunchy sablée with a creamy, rich cheese batter flavored with lemon zest. Very easy to make, it is one of my favorite desserts. A bright and fresh cheesecake….perfect for summer season.
Sunny…..a cake with colors and flavors of the sun. A basil and vanilla bavarian cream, a juicy peaches jelly with a crunchy brunoise. Then a thin chocolate and corn flakes crunchy base with a vanilla syrup to soak the biscuit. The scent of basil fits perfectly with vanilla for a unique flavor.
Berry and coconut……..they are often used in cakes or entremets, but they are one of the best combination: the sweet coconut flavor with sourness of berry……..simply perfect. The top of the cake is a mirror white chocolate and condensed milk glaze….to try.
A simple and gorgeous chocolate tart…..which for sure satisfies a craving for chocolate. This tart is very rich, creamy and soft, with a strong jolt of cocoa. The recipe belongs to Ernst Knamm, the “King of chocolate”. No doubt about the perfect result of the cake.
Tarte bourdaloue….a french popular tart that gets the name from a street in Paris, rue Bourdaloue. A crispy pastry shell, almond filling, similar to frangipane and poached pears. I add almond flakes for an extra texture. I decided as well to use Amaretto liqueur instead of Rhum….. Best to taste the day you prepare, warm or room temperature…..
Yogurt and cocoa brioches: beautiful, delicious, and surprisingly simple to make. The dough has cocoa powder, so not so sweet, and thanks to yogurt inside, they are not so buttery. You can add to the recipe one tablespoon of sugar if you prefer a sweeter taste. For breakfast or every moment during the day.
Another single portion, another different glaze … ..red berries glaze. A white chocolate panna cotta. A light one, not so thick like I wanted it to be, but a glaze able to give a pleasant taste and a nice color. The cranberries shortcrust pastry is the perfect combination with the not too sweet panna cotta, giving a little “crispness” to the dessert. A simple but tasty treat.
