I love Korean Strawberry for they are always sweet and juicy and they are in season right now. I made this Charlotte Aux Fraises or Strawberry Charlotte for YN's birthday last weekend. This lovely cake is full of sweetness and fragrance from the fresh strawberries. It is light and smooth, just melts in your mouth. Definitely a keeper for sure ♥♥♥




Charlotte Aux Fraises
(Strawberry Charlotte) 


    
         Ingredients: (8 inch round cake)

     Cake Base
     100g Digestive biscuits
     60g Melted Butter

     Strawberry Yogurt Mousse
     330g Fresh strawberry puree
     85g Egg white
     80g Sugar
     110g Plain yogurt
     160g Fresh topping cream
     100g Whipping cream
     15g Gelatin powder


 

      To Decorate
      Lady Fingers
      Fresh strawberries (about 600g)
      Snow powder

      Method:
  • Combine crushed biscuit crumbs and melted butter together in a mixing bowl. Press the biscuit crumbs onto the base of the prepared pan and chill in the refrigerator for later use.
  • Soak gelatin powder with 3 tbsp water for 5 minutes. Rinse strawberries and cut into pieces and puree it with 100ml water in a food processor or liquidizer.
  • In a sauce pot light boil strawberry puree under medium heat. (Add soaked gelatin into it when strawberry is almost boiled and stir with a hand whisk till gelatin dissolved). Remove strawberry puree once it is boiled and leave to cool in a larger bowl.
  • Make Meringue: Whisk egg white at medium speed until foamy. Then, add in sugar gradually and whisk until soft peak form. Leave aside for later use.  
  • In another mixing bowl, whisk fresh topping cream and whipping cream together until soft peak form. (you can also use all 260g fresh topping cream instead if you prefer a sweeter mousse).
  • Sift yogurt first. Then fold it in the strawberry puree. Add in meringue and whisked cream and mix well.
  • Pour mixture into the cake tin and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  • Decorate with strawberries and sift some snow powder on top.
  • Cut one end or half of the lady fingers (depending the height of your cake) with a sharp knife. Then line them up around the cake and tie up with a ribbon.

kitchen note: I only poured 3/4 of the strawberry mousse into the cake tin as I don't want the cake to look very high and pour the remaining mousse to serving cups. You can serve the cups with fresh strawberry and chocolate for Valentine's Day. 
Oops! I forgot to take pictures on these cups ... all gone!







Enjoy!

      Strawberries on top are quite heavy that's the reason why its collapse. That's why need to line the cake with lady fingers or sponge cake.

  55. Hi Ann, I would like to make this dessert, but not sure how to unmold it?
    please share tips how to unmold it, which is easy spring pan or ring?
    Thank you for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Soh,

      Yes, you must be very careful when you unmold this cake because the mousse is quite soft. I think is easier to use the cake ring with a aluminium foil wrap around the ring so the mousse will not flows out easily.

  68. Hi Ann, how do I store leftover dairy whipping cream? Most of the info. storage from the packaging box says to finish within 3 days after opening.

    1. Hi Selbsy, I usually wrapped the remaining box of whipping cream with a plastic bag and tightened with a rubber band. Can keep for a week or slightly more.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi , Not likely because the mousse already chilled to set before you lay the lady fingers around the cake.

  73. Hi Anne, I'm not sure if my comment went through earlier, but just want to thank you for this lovely recipe. My friends were impressed and they thought the cake was too pretty to cut. Just wonder if I have leftovers, how long can I store them in the fridge if I have made it a day before serving?
