The Summer has finally fallen on us with its intense heat and humidity.
This is a time when confectioners have a hard time concocting creations that will both keep fresh long enough and satisfy cake lovers’ craving for lighter fare.
Le Cafe-Labo, which seems to grasp the demand for such desserts has just come up with a delicious answer.
Its name is pretty staightforward: Passion Fruit Jelly.
But it is certainly more than that!
As seen on the pic above, it has been conceived into two distinctive layers, allowing you either to savour one at a time or to plunge your spoon to the bottom and come up with a tasty mix.
The top half is made with Mascarpone Cheese, a little flour, milk, sugar and jelly. Lighter than expected and just sweet enough.
The lower half is true passion fruit (they usually come from Okinawa Archipelago or Yakushima Island) processed into a reasonably solid jelly containing small wedges of Japanese Summer Oranges (the bigger slightly tangy variety). It is running all over the place like most industrial jellies. You can “dig” into it for your pleasure! And it is healthy!
