Cake with strawberry mousse and chocolate

This is one of our favorite sweets. The first round of strawberries I bought this year I ate as such, but the second ended in this cake with strawberry mousse and chocolate , light, cool and fragrant. Strawberry mousse in combination with chocolate is always a winning combination that can not fail.

How to prepare Diploma cake with strawberries

It is a very easy cake recipe to make without baking because we use champagne biscuits.

For a cream with a fine and delicious taste, I recommend using natural cream, the one obtained from cream and not imitations in envelopes or vegetable cream.

For this cake, so that I could easily remove it, without disturbing the cookies in their place, I used a metal form with a removable ring, like this one here. My shape was 26 cm in diameter.

Over the top layer of fruit, to prevent them from drying out and oxidizing, I used a sachet of red jelly cake like this. It is not mandatory to use it, but especially if you make a large cake, which you keep in the fridge for 2-3 days, it looks better with that layer of jelly on top.

How do we prepare the Ella cake recipe with mascarpone, whipped cream and strawberries?

Put beaten eggs, add a teaspoon of salt and sugar. Let them froth until the sugar is completely dissolved.

When the sugar is completely dissolved, add a teaspoon of vanilla paste, add the melted butter and mix gently.

Add the flour, which you sift slowly, while mixing gently, from bottom to top, with gentle movements, using a spatula.

We will get a frothy and very fine dough. I prepared a tray with a diameter of 26 centimeters, you can also use a 28 cm one, which I greased well with butter and covered it with flour, but you can also cover it with baking paper.

Preheat the oven to a temperature of 160-170 degrees Celsius with ventilation in electric ovens, 180 degrees without ventilation, fire up and down, and in gas ovens the fire must be medium.

Do not open the oven for the first 20 minutes.

Remove the top from the tray, leave it to cool on a grill.

I also leave you the video recipe, so you can see exactly everything I do and what the countertop and cream look like to me. And further, you know what to do: comments whether you like it or not, like, distribution & hellipetc

How to make the recipe for strawberry charlotte with cream or cake Diplomat with strawberries and biscuits & # 8211 without baking?

Ingredients for charlotte aux fraises or Diplomat with strawberries

Of course, this strawberry and cream cake is made in the strawberry season, when they come from local producers and have great flavor and sweetness! There is no point in tangling in winter with greenhouse strawberries that have the texture and taste of cucumbers.

out of 1 kg of whole strawberries I was left (after removing the stalks) with 900 g. I put aside 300 g of more beautiful strawberries (bigger and stronger) which I will later cut into pieces. I put the remaining 600 g directly in the processor robot vessel.

I also prepared my biscuits. You can also make homemade cookies if you follow this recipe.

I also hydrated the gelatin sheets in a lot of cold water. If you have gelatin granules then I invite you read here how to proceed. The 15 g are hydrated in 80 ml of cold water (at least 10 min).

I prepared my special shape for the charlotte: it has a truncated cone shape with a diameter of 15 cm and 17 cm above and a height of 10 cm. I measured its volume: 2 L fixed.

How to make Diplomat cream with strawberries and natural cream?

I processed the 600 g of strawberries with the robot with knives (it can be a classic or hand blender) and I strained the puree obtained through a fine sieve. We don't need pips in the cream.

I was left with 500 g of puree strained by strawberries and transferred to a saucepan. I added sugar, vanilla and lemon juice (it has an antioxidant role).

I put the pan on low heat and waited for the strawberry sauce to heat up but not to boil. I mixed it with the spoon to dissolve the sugar. I checked the temperature with the kitchen thermometer and when it indicated 60 C I pulled the pan aside. I squeezed the hydrated gelatin sheets well and added them to the strawberry sauce. If you use gelatin granules then it is left to hydrate as I said above, then heat over low heat until it reaches 60 C and pour into the strawberry sauce taken from the heat.

I mixed well. I transferred everything to a cold bowl with a larger volume (so that the whipped cream would fit later) and left the sauce to cool. It should reach 28-30 C (lasts about 1 hour). I mixed it occasionally so that it did not coagulate on the surface.

Since I have made creams with strawberry sauce before and I know that they come out quite pale (beige-pink) I decided to add a few drops of natural red dye to get a more intense color. Mine is based on beets (bought online from a store in Germany) and has a purple tint & # 8230 be careful how you dose the color!

I also show you like strawberry cream without dye & # 8211 see here the recipe for strawberry cheesecake. If it's ok then don't put dye.

Until the sauce cooled, I had time to line the shape of the charlotte with plastic wrap and place the biscuits on its edge as well as cut the remaining 300 g of strawberries into pieces and put them in a strainer. Do not shorten the biscuits until they are full of cream! These 2 issues must be resolved before mixing the strawberry sauce with whipped cream. The edges of the food foil should be longer so that you can cover with them the surface of this Diplomat strawberry cake.

When the strawberry sauce with gelatin started to approach 30 C, I started whipping the cream. The whipped cream should be well cooled in the refrigerator. Details on how to beat natural cream correctly can be found here. In this case, I only beat it 3/4 so that I could incorporate it in the strawberry sauce (so we don't beat it "stick"). No extra sugar should be added.

Diploma cake with strawberries

For my daughter's birthday this year, I chose to make a diplomat cake. And since strawberries are the stars of this season, I didn't fail to choose them as the only fruits I added to the diplomat cream.

Of course, all summer long you can prepare this refreshing cake, light and good, with any fruit you like, avoiding kiwi and fresh pineapple, which influences the action of gelatin.

Although I kept preparing various variants of the diplomat cream, this time I chose to prepare according to Violeta's recipe.
