[1st contest] [Entremet Mangue-Citron[Lv.intemediate]
Updated: Apr 28, 2021
The first time I made an entremet, it didn't work well because I couldn't find any recipe using Agar Agar Powder for the cream and especially the glaze (all the available recipes use gelatin). So after several trials, I found out the appropriate amount of Agar Agar Powder I should add to an entremet at each step so it won't melt or be too sticky. However, marrying mango to lemon is the first trial. I always used to combine mango to passion fruit and I'm really satisfied with the freshness the lemon brings to the mango sweetness.
My name is Asma Ayari, I'm 32 years old. I'm from Tunisia and I have a Ph.D in immunology. I'm married and a happy mom of a 2 years old daughter. I lived for four years in France, where I discovered the French pastry. Since I came to the USA, I started making and sharing my vision of desserts on social media (Facebook & Instagram) which is mainly about French pastry, but sometimes I propose other countries' desserts.

What is Entremet? 🇫🇷
It’s a multi-layered mousse-based cake with various complementary flavors and varying textural contrasts. (Reference from : askchefdennis.com )
Step 1. Lemon Cream
1/2 tsp Agar Agar Powder
6 Tbsp Lemon Juice
4 Tbsp Sugar
6 Tbsp Butter
7 Tbsp Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Egg Yolk
Put the Agar Agar Powder and lemon juice to boil. Whisk the egg yolk and the sugar. Add it to the boiling mixture.
Stir until the mixture thickens.
Take off the heat and add the butter, cover and let cool to room temperature.
Whisk the heavy whipping cream, then add it gradually to the lemon cream.
Step 2. Mango Jelly
1/2 tsp Agar Agar Powder
6 Tbsp Sugar
3 Tbsp Water
1 Mango, cut into cubes
Cut the mango into cubes, add the sugar, water, Agar Agar Powder and cook until the mix becomes thick. Using a hand blender, mix to turn it into a purée.
Put half of the quantity of the mango jelly to freeze into the desired shape to make the insert.
★ TIP ★
Agar-Agar Powder (unlike gelatin) should always be boiled before adding it to the preparation. The entremet, as it is mainly made with cream should be kept at 39.2℉ (in a refrigerator) after the glazing step and could be consumed 2 hours after (the time it thaws).
