Zephyr is one of my favorite desserts. It's very popular in my Motherland Ukraine. I have been living abroad for four years now. It has been hard to find fresh, tasty, and authentic zephyr. So I decided to learn how to make one by myself. Now I can treat my family and foreign friends with real zephyr. You can make any shapes and flavors you want. One of my favorite variations is zephyr in sugar cones. Looks like an ice-cream! Yummy!
I have a lot of interests in my life like psychology, yoga, sports, making jewelry. One of my favorite hobbies is making desserts.

★ TIP ★
It's very important to stir the syrup with Agar Agar not letting the Agar Agar stick to the bottom of the saucepan
Step 1. Raspberries Insert
8 Tbsp Water
5 Tbsp Apple Puree
8 Tbsp Sugar
17 Tbsp Sugar (for syrup)
2 ½ tsp Agar Agar Powder
Mix 5 Tbsp of apple puree with 8 Tbsp of sugar and 1 egg white. Use a mixer to mix. Start to mix it at a low speed.
Pour 8 Tbsp of water into a saucepan. Add 2 ½ tsp of Agar Agar Powder. Start heating it on medium heat. Constantly stirring it. Once you see bubbles in the mixture, add 17 Tbsp of sugar. You need to stir it thoroughly.
Once you add sugar to the saucepan, you can increase your mixer speed. In the end, you need to get a soft white, fluffy mixture. I would say till the soft peaks. At that time you still need to stir the syrup with Agar Agar Powder. It is a very important step. The syrup will get thicker; it will be hard to mix it, but it's normal. To check if your syrup is ready, lift up a spoon, and you should see a thin strand dripping from the spoon. It takes approximately 4-5 minutes to cook the syrup.
By the time your syrup is ready your apple puree with egg whites should be ready too. Turn the mixer on a low speed and start pouring the syrup into the mixture. Be careful not to pour the syrup on the whisk. Then turn on the mixer on high speed and mix for 2-3 minutes. The mixture should double in size and be very fluffy.
Step 2. Food Coloring
1.5 tsp Agar Agar Powder
Optional, add when the mixture is ready to go into the piping bag
Take a piping bag and a piping tip and start making your cute shapes. Let it rest and get harder for 5 hours at room temperature. Enjoy!
ENJOY! Your "Zephyr in Sugar Cones"
