Apricot jelly

  • 1 cup (250 gr.) apricot flesh (process fresh apricots into puree)
  • 4 tbs + 1 tsp (65 gr.) superfine granulated sugar

    Yogurt chantilly
    Soak gelatin leaves in cold water.
    Heat a small amount of yogurt in the microwave.
    Wring gently gelatin sheets to remove excess water, than fold in soften gelatin, stir to combine.
    Add remaining cold yogurt and mix to combine.
    Whip cream until soft peaks form.
    Pour the yogurt mixture into the whipped cream in 2 batches and mix gently to combine, with a rubber spatula and set aside.
    Apricot jelly
    Soak gelatin leaves in cold water.
    Heat half the of apricot puree in the microwave.
    Wring gently gelatin sheets to remove excess water, than fold in soften gelatin, stir to combine.
    Add granulated sugar, dextrose, lemon juice and stir to combine.
    Add the remaining cold apricot puree and mix to combine.
    Set aside.
    To assemble the cake
    Place on the bottom of the glasses some sponge cake cubes.
    Pour 2 layers of yogurt chantilly, 2 layers of apricote jelly, alternating the 2 mixtures.
    Freeze until the jelly is set.
    Brush with neutral gelatin glaze for tarts.
    To serve, remove the glasses from freezer and refrigerate for 8-12 hours to allow the cake bring back to right temperature.
    Decorate with fresh apricot slices.


I suggest, before serving to set room temperature for 10 minutes.
