Makes two 16cm egg desserts for 5-6 each
Recipe Step by Step
EGG SHELLS (TEMPERING USING THE SEEDING METHOD)
Heat to 120-130°F (50-55°C). Once these temperatures have been reached, add the remaining third of unmelted chocolate.
Start mixing by hand, then using an immersion blender. Be careful not to incorporate any air bubbles.
Check the temperature of the chocolate - it should be 88-90°F (31-32°C). The chocolate is now tempered. Make sure you keep the chocolate at this temperature while you work with it. If you need to, use a hairdryer to reheat its surface.
Pour the tempered chocolate immediately into two 16cm egg molds and leave to set for 2 hours at room temperature.
COCOA FLEUR DE SEL STREUSEL
40g Unsalted butter
40g Almond flour
30g Brown sugar
30g Spelt flour*
2g Fleur de sel
10g COCOA POWDER
*See the nutrition tip section at the end of the recipe for an alternative flour.
Cut the cold butter into small cubes. Add the butter and mix using the paddle attachment in a stand mixer until a smooth ball forms.
Make some small, evenly sized balls of dough and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake in a fan-assisted oven at 300/320°F (150/160°C) for 12 minutes.
CHOCOLATE SPONGE WITH SPELT AND MUSCOVADO SUGAR
Add the almond flour. Sift together the flour and COCOA POWDER, then add the baking powder.
Mix everything together then pour in the cream.
Finally add the melted ORIADO 60% chocolate and melted butter.
Pour 265g of the mix in each 18cm-diameter stainless steel ring. Sprinkle on 75g cooked cocoa streusel.
Bake in a fan-assisted oven at 355°F (180°C) for approx. 16 minutes.
ORIADO 60% & CARAMEL CRÉMEUX
140g Heavy cream 36%
30g Salted butter
65g ORIADO 60%
Bring back to a boil, checking that all the sugar has melted.
Leave it to cool until it is lukewarm, then split it into 3 batches and combine these one by one with the melted ORIADO 60% chocolate.Stir with a spatula.
Blend using an immersion blender until the texture is perfectly smooth.
Cover the surface with plastic wrap and leave to set in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours until the texture is ready to pipe.
100g Heavy cream 36%
100g Whole milk
75g Egg yolks
Return to a low heat while mixing with a spatula until the temperature reaches 180-183°F (82-84°C).
Strain and use immediately to create the ANDOA LAIT 39% crème anglaise-style mousse.
ANDOA LAIT 39% MOUSSE
240g Crème Anglaise(prepared beforehand)
450g ANDOA LAIT 39%
360g Heavy cream 36%
Mix using an immersion blender to obtain a perfect emulsion, making sure no air bubbles form. The temperature of the mix must be around 100-106°F (38-41°C).
Whisk the heavy cream until it has a frothy texture. Add the frothy whipped cream to the crème anglaise/chocolate mixture.
Use a spatula to delicately mix the ingredients together.
Use immediately to assemble.
Assembly and finishing
Preparation time: 45 minutes
Total freezing time: 6 hours
Make the ORIADO 60% egg shells and leave to set for 2 hours at room temperature. Do not turn out once set as assembly is carried out in the molds to make the result more stable. Make a template the size of the egg’s base. Using this template, chop the cooked sponge with the streusel. Using a piping bag with a plain round 16mm-diameter nozzle, pipe 80g of ORIADO 60% caramel crémeux onto each biscuit. Pipe generous droplets across the surface and freeze the inserts overnight. Prepare the ANDOA LAIT 39%and pour 150g of it into each ORIADO 60% shell. Place the frozen insert with droplets inside it on top, then press and smoothen out using a pastry spatula. Freeze for 2 hours. Set the remaining mousse aside while the dessert is in the freezer. After the dessert has frozen, turn it out onto a rack and cover with mousse. Then return them to the freezer for an hour. Cover the surface with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator. Once the mousse layer has frozen, stir the mousse that has been stored in the refrigerator to soften it. Put the mousse in a piping bag, finely cut off the end and add lines and dashes at random over the dessert. Freeze for 1 hour. To add the perfect finishing touch, spray using a dark or milk chocolate velvet spray (optional).
