Chilled gâteau with ricotta and red fruits
















  • For the biscuit base::
    Place a circle of baking parchment in the bottom of the tin, butter and flour the sides and refrigerate.
  • Preheat the oven to 170°.
  • Break the eggs and separate the yolks into a small bowl and the whites into a larger bowl.
  • Whisk the yolks with 80 gr of sugar until the mixture is light and airy. 
  • Whisk the whites until stiff, add the remaining sugar and whisk again until smooth and glossy.  
  • Sieve half the flour into a bowl and carefully fold in half the egg whites, then fold in the remaining flour and egg whites.  
  • Pour into the tin, level off the surface with a spatula and cook in the oven for 10 minutes at 170, reducing the temperature to 160 for a further 15 minutes.
  • Unmould the biscuit base onto a wire rack and leave to cool for at least an hour. 
  • For the filling 
    In a bowl, mix the ricotta and red jam, add the white chocolate broken into small pieces.  
  • For the syrup,
    Heat the water and sugar, boil for 2 minutes.  Remove from the heat and add the marsala. 
  • Cut the base into two circles and soak the lower piece in the syrup.  
  • Spread the ricotta mixture on to the base and place the other circle on top.
  • Spread the top with 2 tablespoons of red fruit jam, then decorate with a darker jam such as myrtle or blackberry.  You can also add glace cherries or fresh raspberries.  
  • Refrigerate for 3 hours. 





You can prepare the biscuit before ; it can be kept very well in a plastic bag.
