Nuts are ground in a blender into crumbs with the addition of starch.
Beat the cooled whites with a pinch of salt in a strong foam with a mixer. Continuing to beat, gradually, one tablespoon at a time, add the sugar. Whisk until a persistent, shiny foam forms that does not fall out of the upside-down bowl.
Then gradually add the nut crumbs to the whites and gently mix with a silicone spatula from the bottom up.
Using a round shape with a diameter of 16 cm, draw 2 templates on parchment with a simple pencil.
Evenly distribute the protein mass in a thin layer around the circles using a spoon or pastry spatula. Bake the cakes in a preheated 140-150 °C oven until light brown, 18-20 minutes. ( Parchment paper must be of good quality otherwise the cakes will not come off, and it is best to use a silicone Mat)
Prepare the sponge dough: - Beat the eggs with sugar at the highest speed of the mixer for 5-7 minutes.
- Mix the sifted flour with baking powder and add parts to the beaten eggs, gently mix with a whisk or silicone spatula mass from top to bottom. The dough should be air-filled. We try to keep the dough from falling off.
Transfer the dough to a baking dish (size 20 by 35), greased with oil.
- Put in a preheated 180*C oven for 15-20 minutes (check readiness with a toothpick).
When the biscuit is baked and cool, cut out the cakes with a diameter of 16 cm.
Prepare the cream mousse:
- Mix the yolks, starch, and sugar with a whisk until light.
Heat the milk to 60 g. and add a thin stream to the yolk mass.
Put the mass on a slow fire and constantly stirring bring to a thickening.
Chilled 33% cream whisk until stable peaks.
Combine the cream with the cooled custard base and enter the diluted gelatin (gelatin I used quickly soluble) mix.
Collect the cake in a detachable ring. The bottom of the ring is closed with a film or foil.
