Strawberry Mazarin Dream

We really miss the summer…. And what other way to recreate great summer memories than a cake with strawberries?

The recipe is found on our favorite chocolate blog from which we often find inspiration (we thank Maja for her chocolate generousness). This particular cake is a modernized version of a strawberry tart, but with a more light consistency and a fresher taste of both strawberry and sour cream.

It is nothing less than fabulous (especially if you miss the summer and all the good it brings)!

 

Ingredients (10 servings)

Mazarin cake:

1 cup butter, room temperature

1 cup marzipan, grated

1 cup granulated sugar

3 eggs

1/2 cup flour

 

Chocolate ganache:

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (i have used Amedei Toscano Black)

1/10 cup cream

1/2 tbsp. butter

 

Vanilla cream:

1/3 cup cream

1/3 cup sour cream

1 vanilla pod, seeds only

20-30 strawberries

 

Mazarin cake:

Whisk together butter and sugar until it get s light and fluffy. Add the grated marzipan and whisk until just combined.

Add one egg at a time and whisk until just combined. Then shift in flour and fold until the batter is combined and smooth.

Add the batter to an 8-inch springform pan covered with baking paper, and bake at 350F for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool completely before removing the cake from the springform.

 

Chocolate Ganache:

In a heatproof bowl bring together chocolate, cream and butter. Melt over a pan of simmering water until the ganache is combined and shiny.

Add on top of the cooled mazarin cake.

 

Vanilla Cream:

Whisk the cream and seeds from the vanilla pod. Whisk until the the cream forms soft peak. Be careful not to over whisk. Add the sour cream and fold until evenly combined.

Pour over the chocolate ganache and decorate with strawberries 🙂

Serve with a good cup of coffee or an glass of sparkling wine.
