Amour de framboise: Raspberry curd and white chocolate entremets

 There's a time that I don't want to do anything difficult or take time, and yes there's a time that simple thing can't make me happy enough ^^.


I think the problem is sometime we need complicating taste, not only a taste of chocolate or berry, coffee or etc, but a combination of them. That's the reason why I love to make entremets. Each element can be different in both flavour and texture, there are endless possibility. 
You can start by thinking about the look or the flavours, it's the same as putting a piece of puzzle together. This time I start from the look. I want something with black, red and white so I have to think about each colour "What is the taste of it? Finally I came up with this one, black is chocolate sponge that I made from black cocoa powder (I got black cocoa powder from my Japan trip ^^), you can use simple cocoa powder too. I use it as a base for the entremets and soak it in Creme de framboise to act as a liquor insert. White is white chocolate mousse, sweet and simple. The red colour, I go for raspberry curd the tanginess will cut some sweetness from the white chocolate mousse too. But I think it's not enough, the texture of the entremets is too light so I add the last element "Praline feuilletine", that I use a bit of whipping cream to soften it (it will be less crunchy than the traditional recipe), but when you eat all of them together the texture is better. 
I use a lot of liquor for this entremets but if you can't use or take alcohol you can use flavoured syrup mix with some water to lighten it or simple syrup mix with raspberry extract will be a good substitute too.

  2. Hi
    Your blog is toooo good and very yummy yummy looking dishes. Thanks for sharing those Recipes.

    In this recipe u mentioned about Creme de framboise can u please share the method of making that.
    Also while making mousse the whipping cream should have how much percentage of fat content?
    Coz am from Dubai,UAE.here we have very hot and humid climate sometimes temperature reaching 45c
    When ever I try to whip my cream I won't get a stiff peaks consistency. I use electric beater is that the problem?? I don't know why. Tried so many brands most of the brand we are getting here has max 33 or 36% fat.
    Can please guide me how get stiff peaks in whipped cream.

    1. Thank you!
      For the Creme de framboise, it's raspberry liquor, I bought it ^^ in a bottle never made it by myself before.
      The problem that you have with whipping cream, mine is about the same 33-40%, if you can find, the Anchor brand is very easy to whip (and very thick too). You can try whip it over a bowl of ice it will make whipping easier too.

    4. Actually if you can buy raspberry syrup you can use it instead of Creme de framboise. But if not, you can soak the cake with light syrup ^^.
