Raspberry charlotte cake
- Dessert circle 22 cm in diameter and 4.5 cm in height
- 2 spoon cookie base 20 cm in diameter. See the spoon cookie recipe
- 1 spoon cookie strip 35 cm long by 10 cm wide. Sprinkle with icing sugar before cooking.
- 250 g raspberries fresh or frozen
Raspberry mousse :
- 580 g raspberry puree
- 285 g caster sugar
- 185 g water
- 3 gelatin leaves
- 400 g whipping cream 30% minimum fat
- 100 g egg whites
- 50 g raspberry liqueur
Raspberry icing :
- 200 g raspberry sauce
- 25 g icing sugar
- 2 gelatin leaves
- To start, you will make two bases, as well as a strip of spoon cookie, whose recipe you will find on video on my channel.
- To make the syrup, mix 125 g of sugar with 125 g of water and bring to a boil.
- Pour the syrup over the raspberry puree, mix and add the raspberry liqueur.
- For raspberry mousse, first soften the gelatin by leaving it in cold water, then make a syrup by bringing 60 g of sugar and 60 g of water to a boil.
- Add the softened and wrung out gelatin to the syrup, mix and then pour everything into the raspberry puree. Mix, add the raspberry liqueur, then leave aside for the moment.
- Whip the cream into whipped cream, making sure to have the bowl, the whisk and the cream very cold. Then keep the whipped cream in the refrigerator.
- Clean the mixer bowl, pour the whites and start whipping them. When they start to foam, add a third of the sugar and continue.
- When the whites form a thick peak, add the rest of sugar progressively while continuing whipping them. We get a nice, firm and shiny meringue.
- Add the meringue to the whipped cream, then add the first part of this mixture to the jellified raspberry puree. Add and gently incorporate the rest of whipped cream.
- I use a 22 cm diameter and 4,5 cm high circle. Cut 3.5 cm to 4 cm high strips of cookie spoon that you place all around the circle.
- Place a spoon cookie base at the bottom of the circle which you soak in raspberry syrup using a brush.
- Garnish the bottom of the charlotte cake with raspberry mousse, then scatter whole raspberries on top.
- Place the second spoon cookie base, making sure to soak it on both sides. Complete the circle with raspberry mousse, then smooth the top using a palette knife.
- Place the raspberry charlotte cake in the freezer for 5 to 6 hours in order to make the frosting on top.
- Once the Raspberry charlotte cake is frozen, prepare the frosting. Start by heating the raspberry sauce.
- Soften the gelatin in cold water. When the raspberry sauce is hot, add the icing sugar, then the wrung gelatin and mix everything.
- Pass the frosting in a very fine colander to remove all the grains. Let it cool down.
- When the frosting is lukewarm, pour it over the frozen raspberry charlotte cake, then smooth the top fairly quickly using a palette knife. Let the frosting set.
- Place the charlotte cake on a presentation tray, heat the circle slightly and then gently remove it to keep a neat look.
- For decoration, let your imagination run wild, otherwise here is an idea of how to decorate your raspberry charlotte cake.
