Choco Passion Fruit Marble Mirror Glaze

Pâte Sucrée/ Sugar dough

Ingredients

62 g soft butter, soft
50 g powdered sugar, sieved
25 g eggs, room temperature
125 g flour, sieved
2 g salt

Directions:

Mix soft butter and powdered sugar in a bowl until it’s just combined.
Add the eggs and mix. (Always make sure that everything has the same temperature when you make cakes, sponge cakes, etc. it homogenizes better)
Add flour, salt and knead until smooth.
Wrap in plastic and rest in the fridge overnight.
Roll out the cooled dough to 3 mm and cut out circles with a round cookie cutter (12 cm diameter)
Cool for 30 minutes and then bake in the oven at 165°C for 10 minutes and let them cool completely. Make sure it doesn’t get brown. The tart is perfect when it has no color.

You can freeze the leftover sugar dough for up to 2 months.

Chocolate Sponge Cake

Ingredients

53 g whole egg, room temperature
37 g sugar
37 g white flour, sifted
3 g cocoa powder

Directions:

Beat the eggs and sugar for 10 minutes until the mixture has doubled.
Add the sifted flour and cacao powder and fold it in gently with a spatula. (You don’t want to lose the air that you whisk in the egg mixture)
Bake for about 15 minutes at 190-200°C.
Let it cool completely. (If you prepare the sponge cake a day before cover
it with plastic foil so it doesn’t dry out.)
Cut it out with a tartelette ring and with a smaller ring in the middle.

Tips:

To check if the sponge cake is done, press in with your finger:
If the imprint of the finger remains, it is still not good.
When the imprinted area comes up again, it is good.
