Stage 2 - 5 min.

Prepare the soaking syrup by mixing 150 ml Sugar syrup, the juice of 1 lime and 10 g Vanilla sugar. Mix well.

Stage 3 - 15 min.

Prepare 500 g strawberries and cut into small pieces.

You can mix these with 1 tablespoon caster sugar, but it is not essential.

Stage 4 - 10 min.

Stage 5

Begin assembling the charlotte: soak a biscuit in the syrup...

...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.

Stage 7 - 10 min.

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.

Stage 8 - 3 min.

Stage 9 - 5 min.

Continue filling with alternating layers to the top of the mould.

Stage 11 - 5 min.

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.

Stage 12 - 2 hours

Stage 13

Server portions surrounded by strawberry coulis or real custard (crème anglaise).

Remarks

If you intend making your charlotte a day or two in advance, I advise you to add a sheet of gelatin to the whipped cream which will help it keep better.

You can add a tablespoon of rum to the syrup or make it with brown, rather than white sugar - it's simply a matter of taste.

Butter, which is excellent for fixing flavours in a recipe, burns if the temperature is too high. It darkens and produces unpleasant small black specks (by the way, note that the famous recipe "raie au beurre noir", ray in black butter, is a kind of sacrilege!).
