Coconut-vanilla cream for Elsa

Coconut-vanilla cream for Elsa

A dessert in three layers: a first of smooth vanilla cream, a second of coconut cream (also very smooth), and to finish, a thin crunchy layer of coconut tuiles.

In the spirit of crème brulée: break through the crisp surface layer to discover the smooth melting coconut and vanilla creams beneath. A delight...

Step by step recipe

Stage 1
50 min.
Coconut-vanilla cream for Elsa  : Photo of step #1 Preheat oven to 180°C (360°F).

Prepare a mixture for crème brulée with 170 g cream, 170 g whole milk, 40 g caster sugar, 4 egg yolks and 1 vanilla pod.

Once this is made, if you have time, put the pan back over low heat and allow to thicken as for real custard (crème anglaise). This is not essential, but it will prevent all the vanilla grains falling to the bottom of the dish during cooking, which is unattractive.
Stage 2
10 min.

Divide the cream between the dishes or glasses, and place in a lèchefrite or large deep oven tray. Pour a little boiling water into the tray.
Stage 3
30 min.

Remove from oven, leave to cool to room temperature, then put in the fridge.
Stage 4
5 min.

Put 200 g unsweetened coconut milk, 120 g cream, and 30 g caster sugar in a pan.
Stage 5
5 min.

As soon as well mixed and hot (no need for it to boil), remove from heat and add softened gelatin, after draining and drying.

Stir again to mix well.
Stage 6
3 min.
Coconut-vanilla cream for Elsa  : Photo of step #6 Leave coconut cream to cool, and when at room temperature add 3 tablespoons Malibu rum. Mix well.

Adding Malibu is not essential, but it brings out the flavour of the coconut.
Stage 7
2 hours

Tip: put a tea-towel on a baking sheet to hold the glasses still.

Refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Up to this stage everything can be prepared the previous day, even two days before.
Stage 8
1 hour 12 min.
Coconut-vanilla cream for Elsa  : Photo of step #8 Prepare your coconut tuiles.
Stage 9
3 min.
Coconut-vanilla cream for Elsa  : Photo of step #9 Place a coconut tuile on top of each cream and serve without delay.
Stage 10

Remarks

If possible remove the creams from the fridge about an hour before serving and leave at room temperature. They are best served cool but not too cold, as then they have less flavour. But only add the tuile at the last minute.

For a more stylish presentation, pour a ribbon of chocolate over the tuiles, or sprinkle them with a little cocoa powder.
