Strawberry, Coconut and Coriander Entremet

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing with you the recipe of a very refreshing Entremet to enjoy the last strawberries of the season. It’s a Coconut, Strawberry and Coriander Entremet ? It’s made up of a Coconut Streusel, a Coriander Sponge Cake, some Coconut Mousse, a Strawberry/Coriander Insert and a Strawberry Glaze ? The coriander is very subtle in taste but it adds freshness to the Cake and combines amazingly with the strawberry!

For the Sponge Cake:

1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/347°F fan-assisted.

2. Separate the eggs.

5. Gently add the egg yolks to the egg whites. Also fold in the sifted flour, baking powder and salt.

6. Mix the coriander with the milk and oil. Place in a bowl.

7. Add 30g of the previous mixture and whisk.

8. Add everything back to the original mixture.

9. Pour 150g of dough inside a 18cm circle and spread 170g thinly over a baking tray.

10. Cook the circle for ~10min and the tray for ~7min. They should be golden.

11. Let it cool down before unmolding.

For the Streusel:

1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/347°F fan-assisted.

2. Cream the softened butter with the sugar.

4. Pour into a dish and let it cool down between 25 and 30°C.

5. Whip the liquid cream until it forms very soft peaks.

6. Gently add the coconut cream to the whipped cream.

It’s time to assemble!

1. Wrap the bottom of a 20cm mold with cling film. Add a piece of rhodoid sheet (or plastic sheet) on the edges.

2. Place the streusel disk at the bottom of the mold. Pour a little bit of mousse and cover with the disk of sponge cake.

3. Cover with half of the Mousse.

4. Unmold the strawberry insert and place over the mousse.

5. Finish with the rest of the mousse.

6. Freeze overnight.

For the Strawberry/Coriander Coulis:

2. Keep aside.

For the Glaze:

1. Hydrate the gelatin.

2. Cook the water, the sugar and the strawberry coulis until they reach 103°C.

3. Add the liquid cream and let it reach 103°C again.

4. Melt the chocolate.

5. Pour the syrup in 3 times over the melted chocolate. Mix vigorously.

6. Add the hydrated gelatin.

7. Let the glaze cool down between 20 and 24°C.

8. Unmold the Entremet and place it on a support.

9. Pour the glaze by starting with the edges.

10. Let the excess fall off.

11. Take the tray of Sponge Cake and cut enough strips of 4cm wide to surround the borders of the Entremet.

12. Use the rest of the sponge cake to cut one very thin strip and place it on the surface of the Entremet.

13. Add some dots of the Strawberry/Coriander Coulis. Also add some fresh strawberries.

Your Entremet is over! Let it thaw in the fridge for 2-3h and then enjoy!
