Recipeweek 3 – Rum Charlotte

Hello again, (edited this post, look down what it is ^^)

Wednesday I tried to make a good Charlotte Russe like my mother used to make them.
The only problem was I had no recipe and she only remembered a few things, but I did create something delicious. ^^

The recipe was also not really measured and I used instant powder as well which I don’t know if it is the same everywhere.
So I’ll try explaining it the best I can for you. ^^

Ingredients: (for 24 diameter round)

  • Rum
  • Lady fingers (or boudoir cookies in other words)
  • 400 ml cream (that is used for whipped cream)
  • instant mousse powder ( powder that can make milk, yoghurt etc. in mousse)
  • Biscuitmix (just follow the description on the box)
  • tangerine (I used the canned species :))

How it was made:

  1. Bake the cake, cool it down and cut a thin bottom. (the rest is just for yourself or make cake balls out of it)
  2. Sprinkle a little bit of rum over the bottom and sprinkle a mixture of 50/50 water and rum over the lady fingers.
  3. Put them on top of the cake into a circle. (you need to have patience or smart since some fall down and take the others with them)
  4. Put cream, instant mousse powder (according to its description), rum (about 2 tbsp) and a bit of sugar into a bowl. Mix until it is doubled in volume.
  5. Put the mixture into the shape and finish of with your desired fruit which is tangerine in this case.
  6. Let it stiffen for several hours (3 or more) and after that you can safely cut out a piece without too many mess.

Enjoy baking!
