Cinnamon Ganache:

  • 400g of full liquid cream

We’ll start with the speculoos Insert:

1. Hydrate the gelatin.

2. Heat the cream with the speculoos paste until the paste melts.

3. Pour little by little over the egg yolks.

4. Cook everything over medium heat, while stirring, until it reaches 84°C.

5. Off the heat, add the hydrated gelatin and the mascarpone cream.

6. Pour inside 5cm half-sphere mold. Freeze overnight.

For the Cinnamon Ganache:

1. Hydrate the gelatin.

2. Bring to boil 1/3 of the cream with the cinnamon.

3. Pour over the cut chocolate and add the gelatin. Mix with a hand blender.

4. Add the rest of the cold cream.

5. Wrap with cling film (it should touch the surface) and refrigerate overnight.

For the Cinnamon Biscuit:

1. Preheat the oven to 170°C fan-assisted.

2. Whisk the eggs with the sugar and the cinnamon until they whiten and double in size.

3. Add the oil and milk and whisk for a few seconds.

4. Add the sifted flour, the baking powder and the salt.

5. Melt the butter to 50°C and add to the preparation.

6. Pour inside a 20cm mold and cook for 15-20min. It should be golden.

7. Let it cool down before cutting disks of 4cm in diameter and 1,5-2cm in height.

For the Craquelin:

1. Cream the softened butter with the sugar. Add the flour and the salt.

2. Spread between 2 parchment papers to a 3mm thickness. Cut circles of 5cm.

3. Freeze until use.

For the Choux paste:

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C fan-assisted.

2. In a saucepan, put the butter cut into pieces, the sugar, the water and the salt.

3. Heat until the butter melts. Then bring to boil.

4. Add the flour at once and off the heat. Mix until homogenic.

5. Cook over low heat for 2-3min to dry out the paste.

6. Place in a bowl and let it cool down a bit.

7. Add the eggs little by little and mix energetically between each addition. The paste must be shiny and should flow slowly.

8. Place in a pastry bag fitted with a 16mm plain tip.

9. Pipe circles of 5cm. Leave enough space between them.

10. Add a disk of craquelin.

11. Cook for 25-30min. The puff must grow and have a uniform golden color. Don’t open the door during the 15-20 first minutes.
