Fake pinwheel on a puff pastry sheet

What we will need:

for the filling:

  • 1 liter of milk
  • 8 eggs
  • 300 g of granulated sugar
  • 100 g of plain flour
  • 1 vanilla pod (can be replaced by 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
  • 25 g gelatine powder

For the whipped cream layer:

  • 400 ml whipping cream (33%)
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 1 packet whipping cream thickener

For the topping:

  • ½ teaspoon instant coffee
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 200 g granulated sugar
  • 70 g butter
  • 1 packet of puff pastry

Baking tray 36 x 24 cm

How we will proceed:

1. Divide the thawed puff pastry in half and roll out into two thin sheets.

2. Then pierce the sheets with a fork and bake until golden brown in a preheated oven (at 180 degrees for about 15 minutes).

3. Next, prepare the cream. Beat the egg yolks with half of the sugar until foamy. Gradually add the flour, vanilla and 150 ml of milk. Whisk to a smooth mass.

4. Whip the egg whites and the remaining sugar into a stiff snow.

5. Transfer 700 ml of milk to a saucepan and put on the heat. When the milk is hot gradually stir in the egg yolk mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until a thick custard forms.

6. Pour the gelatine into the remaining milk, allow to swell and then dissolve by heating over a flame (according to the instructions on the packet).

7. Then let the gelatine cool for a while and then carefully stir it into the snow. The snow is then stirred into the still hot egg yolk custard and whipped into a fluffy cream.

8. Finally, we start to prepare the icing. Heat the milk and dissolve the coffee in it. Add the sugar and cook, stirring constantly, for approximately 9 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir the butter into the hot mixture and mix thoroughly. You should get a smooth caramel-like mass.

9. Spread the caramel on one baked slice of dough and cut it into cubes.

10. Layer the still warm cream over the whole sheet of pastry, smooth and leave to cool.

11. Whip the cream, sugar and thickening agent into a stiff whipped cream and layer it on top of the cooled cream. Finally, cover the cream evenly with the puff pastry squares and topping.

12. Place in the fridge to set and serve.

We wish you a good taste!
