|1 hour 9 min.||2 hours||3 hours 9 min.|
|1||Place a circle of cooking parchment in the bottom of your charlotte mould to make turning out easier.||3 min.|
|2||Prepare the soaking syrup by mixing 150 ml Sugar syrup, the juice of 1 lime and 10 g Vanilla sugar. Mix well.||5 min.|
|3||Prepare 500 g strawberries and cut into small pieces.
You can mix these with 1 tablespoon caster sugar, but it is not essential.
|4||Prepare 250 ml Chantilly cream.||10 min.|
|5||Begin assembling the charlotte: soak a biscuit in the syrup...|
|6||...and place on the paper in the bottom of the mould.
Use as many biscuits as you need to form what will become the "top" of the charlotte.
The biscuits should sit tightly against each other (press them into place if necessary). The bottom of the mould should no longer be visible. Fill in any gaps with small pieces of soaked biscuit.
|7||Then arrange biscuits vertically up the sides, soaked as before, to form the sides of the charlotte.
The sides of the mould should be completely covered with a tightly packed layer of biscuits.
|8||Put the first layer of cream in the bottom of the mould.||3 min.|
|9||Cover with a layer of strawberries.||5 min.|
|10||Continue filling with alternating layers to the top of the mould.||3 min.|
|11||Finish with a final layer of biscuits. It is fine to leave the top rounded (more than in the photo), as the charlotte will compact as it stands
cover with stretch plastic film and put in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Make a coulis with any left-over strwaberries and keep this in the fridge, also covered with plastic film.
|12||Turn out the charlotte at the last minute.||2 hours|
|13||Server portions surrounded by strawberry coulis or real custard (crème anglaise).|
