For our anniversary I wanted to surprise my husband with a dessert that incorporated his favourite fruit, mango.
I wanted it to look elegant and be something I had never made before, something that would make him say wow!
So after a lot of thinking, researching, drawing and experimenting I decided on an entremet, because it’s elegant, has some kind of mousse (which I love), textural contrast, and looks amazing.
The only problem I had was that I didn’t have a lot of time to make loads of different elements like standard entremets have. I cut it down to 3 main parts, and 2 extra garnishes to balance out all the flavours, and created a simple tasty posh dessert that looks restaurant quality.
A soft gelee mango glaze encases the velvety mango mousse, that sits on top of a bed of white chocolate banana cake. It is served alongside a zingy lime sauce, and topped with some bitter dark chocolate, this posh dessert will impress aesthetically and captivate the taste buds.
This dessert has different textures. The mousse is soft, the cake is chewy and the chocolate is crisp
The dessert is sweet and balanced with the sour lime sauce and bitter dark chocolate
It has everything you need to keep your taste buds singing with happiness.
The first time I made it I piped my melted dark chocolate carefully for an elegant look, but if you watch my video below I used a fork and sprinkled it all over for a more artistic look. It’s up to you which method you prefer, they both look stunning either way.
So on the morning of our anniversary my husband and I had a dome each and my girls shared one so that left us with 3. We were going away right after breakfast and I didn’t want to throw them in the bin so I dropped them off to my mum and dad. When I asked my mum if they liked them she said
“I only had a spoon your dad ate them all” lol
My dad ate all 3 in less than 24 hours, and he’s fussy.
He only eats Greek desserts covered in honey or syrup, so I knew I was on to a winner.
And so will you if you give them a try!
If you do give them a go let me know how you got on and what you thought of the flavour in the comments below, and if you want to see me make them watch this video.
