Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

How was your holiday weekend? Did you have fun?

Mine was great!

We also had Strawberry And White Chocolate Charlotte Cake, the recipe for which I’m sharing with you today. I’m very excited, because it is extremely easy to make and very delicious. Fruity and very light, it is perfect for spring and summer.

Charlotte cake has been on my list for a while. I’m glad I made this Strawberry And White Chocolate Charlotte Cake.

When I started looking for recipes, I realized that the possibilities are endless.

If you haven’t heard of this cake, Wikipedia’s definition for it is:“A Charlotte is a type of dessert, or truffle, that can be served hot or cold. Bread, sponge cake, or biscuits/cookies are used to line a mold, which is then filled with fruit puree or custard. It can be also made using layers of breadcrumbs. Lady fingers may be used, too. The filling may be covered with a thin layer of similarly flavored gelatin.”

This definitely gave me a lot of room to experiment.

Charlotte Cake

 

My love for tiramisu is not a secret and I always have lady fingers cookies in my pantry.

I used these to line a spring form pan. Them I made a strawberry flavored mousse (with gelatin) and filled the spring form pan with it. I refrigerated it for 1 hour. In the mean time I made some white chocolate mousse. I added it on top and refrigerated for 5-6 more hours. To decorate the top of the cake I used fresh strawberries.

It sounds pretty easy? It really is.

This cake is so simple to make and everyone, who tried it was impressed!
