This STRAWBERRY FRAISIER DESSERT is a dessert that you make when you really want to impress your guests. There are two things that make this dessert incredible. The first, which is very obvious, is the presentation. This dessert is so beautiful, almost too beautiful to eat.
The second is the flavor. This is such a refreshing and flavorful dessert. All the different layers of this dessert come together so well.
I must admit that this Strawberry Fraisier dessert is not something that you will make every day, since it does have so many steps to do. However, when you do make it, your guests will ask you to make it over and over.
Pastry Cream Filling
2 cups or 500ml full cream milk (4% fat)
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 tablespoons or 20g (0.71 ounces) cornflour
1/2 cup or 55g (1.94 ounces) sugar
2 tablespoons or 60g (2.12 ounces) butter
1 1/2 tsp gelatin
2 cups or 500ml cream (what cream should I use?)
Add four tablespoons of milk to the gelatin, stir immediately and leave to soften.
Heat the milk and vanilla over the stove top.
Whisk together the eggs, sugar and cornstarch, then add to the hot milk whisking as you do.
Stir over the heat until thickened then continue to stir for a couple of minutes more
Add the softened gelatin and stir until melted. Remove from the heat. Add the butter and stir through. Leave to cool at room temperature, do not refrigerate or it will set.
Whip the cream to soft peaks and fold into the cooled custard mixture.
250g (8.82 ounces) of strawberries, washed and hulled.
2g (0.07 ounces) or 1 teaspoon agar agar
Blend the strawberries and strain to remove and seeds. This should leave you with about 150g (5.29 ounces) of strawberry puree. Place puree in a sauce pan and sprinkle over the agar agar. Heat until boiling, continue to stir allowing the agar to dissolve. Pour onto foil and spread thinly. Place in fridge to set.
