The cheesecake

A true icon of New York gastronomy, this cheesecake is a dessert classic. Without cooking, it is simple to make and requires little technique and ingredients. You can twist it according to your wishes by adding, for example, fruit, melted chocolate or even caramel for an even more gourmet result.

Ingredients for 4 people

  • 1 packet of biscuits, 125 to 150 g (shortbread or petit-beurre)

Melt the butter and crumble the biscuits into a sort of crumble.

Place in the bottom of your verrines and keep cool.

Quickly mix the cream cheese with lemon juice and yogurt. The resulting cream must be smooth and homogeneous.

In a pan, bring gelatin, sugar and 150 ml of water to the boil. After a minute or two, the mixture should have thickened, then mix with the previous preparation.

Take the verrines out of the fridge and pour the cream in. Put back in the fridge for at least 3 hours.

Chocolate tiramisu

It’s a classic for dessert time: Tiramisu! It can be rejected in a classic version, with coffee, but also with chocolate or fruit for a refreshing note. Be careful, you still need to prepare it in advance. As they say, everything comes in due time to those who know how to wait.

  • 25 g brown sugar
  • 25 g white sugar
  • 1 bag of vanilla sugar

In your verrines, arrange ladyfingers that have been soaked in cold coffee (without soaking them). Then add a layer of mascarpone and melted chocolate. Repeat the operation to the top of the verrine. Finish with a generous sprinkling of cocoa powder.

Let it cool for 1 night in the fridge.

The express is crumbling

This English dessert is a classic that we keep making again and again. Easy and quick to make, it requires few ingredients with its shortcrust pastry and fruit. You can twist the basic recipe according to the seasons and your wishes, although the original apple crumble remains.

Ingredients for 2 people

  • 2 apples (golden type)
  • 1 bag of vanilla sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 pancakes (Breton) with butter

Peel and dice the apples.

Crush the steaks with the back of a spoon.

Remove the ramekins from the microwave and sprinkle with cookies.

Chocolate Banoffee Pie

This dessert, still little known in France, will please fans of bananas, but also coffee. And good news: its verrine version has almost nothing to envy the traditional version.

Ingredients for 4 people

  • 3 bananas
  • 50 g dark chocolate
  • 15 g unsalted butter
  • 75 g of sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 Breton shortbreads
  • 150 g mascarpone
  • 1 egg
  • 25 g salted butter
  • 7 cl liquid cream

Crumble the Breton shortbread.

Pour the sugar little by little into a pan, stirring constantly, to a caramel. When the caramel is blond, pour 5 cl of cream away from the heat while you whisk until the sugar is completely dissolved. Then add salted butter cut into pieces. If the caramel hardens during the operation, put it back on the heat.

Blend a banana and mix it with the caramel preparation. Book next door.

In a bain-marie, melt the chocolate, the unsalted butter and the rest of the liquid cream. Add to page.

Separate the egg white and yolk into two different containers. Mix the mascarpone and a tablespoon of sugar and vanilla extract with the egg yolk. Beat the egg whites before carefully incorporating them into the mascarpone preparation.

To assemble, make a base with the crumbled shortbread in the smoker, and press down firmly. Slice the last two bananas. Arrange the slices on the shortbread, which must be covered with caramel and then with the mascarpone mixture. Finish with chocolate and refrigerate.
