Raspberry Tartelettes with Crème Patissière

DSC02040blogHappy Mother’s Day, everyone!

Of course, today, my wonderful beloved Mum could choose what I should bake for our dessert. She wished for something nice and simple that would not cause too much chaos in our kitchen. As I myself am very busy at the moment (= little baking time), I decided to make simple Raspberry Tartelettes with Crème Patissière.DSC02050blog

DSC02042blogI have already made very similar Strawberry Tartelettes last year – check out the recipe here. This year, I decided to buy the bases for the tartelettes at our local bakery. Their quality is fantastic – they’re crisp and simply delicious!DSC02022blogDSC02047blogToday, I made the crème patissière and decorated the tartelettes with raspberries (some also with strawberries – as my Dad prefers them 😉 ), cream and a pineapple mint leaf. So simple – and sooooo good!

Enjoy this lovely day!

Much love (especially for my Mum ❤ ),
Bettina.

HAPPY FIRST BLOGIVERSARY and some beautiful STRAWBERRY-TARTELETTES WITH CRÈME PATISSIÈRE

Strawberry-Tartelette with Crème Patissière

I can hardly believe that it’s only a year ago when I started blogging and sharing my recipes with you. But that’s how it is. Today’s my first ‘Blogiversary”! To celebrate the occasion I’ll share with you some wonderfully simple Strawberry Tartelettes. They’re as beautiful as a flower on a summer lawn…and absolutely delicious. Furthermore, they include two of my favourite (baking) things: berries and a piping bag ❤ 😉

But before I show you my recipe, I would love to know, what your favourite ‘Betty The Baking Princess-recipe’ is? Feel free to comment below – I am looking forward to it!

Best wishes and THANK YOU for following me,
Bettina.

Strawberry-Tartelettes with Crème Patissière

Preparation time: 40 minutes
Baking time: 18 minutes

Ingredients for 4 tartelettes:

Sponge:

­       2 eggs

­       80g sugar

­       1 tbsp. vanilla sugar

­       1 pinch of salt

­       2 tbsp. warm water

­       zest of  ½ lemon

­       60g flour

­       10g cornflour

 

Filling:­

3 egg yolks

­       50g sugar

­       10g flour

­       250ml milk

­       ½ vanilla bean

­       1 tsp. Grand Marnier

 

Decoration:

­       about 500g nice, fresh strawberries

­       almond flakes

­       confectioners‘ sugar

Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C and grease your four tartelettes forms well. Sprinkle them with flour afterwards.
  2. Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Put the egg yolks into a large bowl and put the egg whites into a medium sized bowl.
  3. Add sugar, one pinch of salt and warm water to the egg yolks. Whisk until light and fluffy. Add zest of 1/2 lemon. Set aside.
  4. Add a pinch of salt to the egg whites and whisk with an electric whisk until stiff. Put the whipped egg whites on top of the egg yolk-mixture.
  5. Sift the flour and cornflour on top. Gently fold in and combine, trying to keep the volume.
  6. Pour the mixture equally into the four prepared tartelettes forms and smooth the surface
  7. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 18 minutes or until the top is golden brown, you can also check whether they are done using a needle.
  8. For the filling, put the milk into a pot. Add vanilla, vanilla bean and Grand Marnier. Bring to the boil, then take it off the stove and let it rest for a few minutes before removing the vanilla bean.
  9. Whisk egg yolks and sugar thoroughly. Add flour and corn starch. Add the egg-mixture to the milk mixture and heat it again while stirring. When the crème has thickened, take it off the stove, cover it with cling film and put it into the fridge.
  10. While the crème patissière has to cool down, wash and cut the strawberries. You can either use the whole (when they’re small) or cut “rings”. Both ways can create beautiful patterns on your tartelettes.
  11. Remove the „lid“ of the now cooled tartelettes and pipe the cooled crème on to them. Decorate with strawberries, (roasted) almond flakes and confectioner’s sugar.
