Express crash

This English dessert is a classic that we make over and over again. Easy and quick to prepare, it requires a minimum of ingredients thanks to shortcrust pastry and fruit. You can change the basic recipe depending on the season and your desires, even if the original apple crumble remains.

  • 1 sachet of vanilla sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 pancakes (Breton) with butter

Peel and cut apples into cubes.

Put them in a bowl and sprinkle with vanilla sugar and cinnamon. Mix well so that all the apple pieces are covered.

Divide the mixture into 2 molds. Heat up for 1 minute at maximum power.

Mash the patties with the back of a spoon.

Remove molds from microwave and sprinkle with cookies.

Banoffee chocolate cake

This dessert, still little known in France, will appeal to lovers of bananas, as well as coffee. And the good news is that the verrin version has little to envy of the traditional version.

Ingredients for 4 persons

  • 3 bananas
  • 50 g dark chocolate
  • 15 g unsalted butter
  • 75 g sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 Breton shortbread cookies
  • 150 g mascarpone
  • 1 egg
  • 25 g salted butter
  • 70 ml liquid cream

Crumble the Breton shortbread.

Slowly pour the sugar into the pan, stirring constantly to make caramel. When the caramel becomes light, pour in 5 ml of cream from the heat, whisking until the sugar is completely dissolved. Then add chopped salted butter. If the caramel hardens while working, put it back on the fire.

Mix the banana and mix it with the caramel preparation. Side reserve.

Melt the chocolate, unsalted butter and the rest of the liquid cream in a water bath. Set aside.

Separate the egg white and yolk into two separate bowls. With egg yolk, mix mascarpone and a tablespoon of sugar and vanilla extract. Whisk the egg white before gently adding it to the mascarpone mixture.

For assembly in verrines, make a base of crumbled shortbread cookies, pressing down well. Cut the last two bananas into slices. Arrange the slices on the shortbread, which should be topped with caramel and then with the mascarpone mixture. Finish with chocolate and refrigerate.
