Recipe Step by Step
PUMPKIN CAKE MIX
2g Cinnamon powder
2g 5-spice mix
270g Whole wheat flour
6g Baking powder
180g Greek yogurt (full fat)
Melt the butter.
Blend the raw pumpkin using a blender or grate it with a cheese grater.
Mix together the flour, baking powder, spices and salt.
Beat the eggs and sugar together until they are fluffy.
Mix together the pumpkin and the beaten fromage blanc, then add them to the mixture.
Sift the dry ingredients together then add them in, followed by the warmed melted butter.
Stop mixing as soon as the mix comes together.
Line the small fluted brioche molds with butter and flour.
Fill the molds with 65g of pumpkin cake mix.
Bake at 300°F (150°C) for 30 minutes.
CARAMEL & DULCEY 35% CRÉMEUX
245g Whipping cream
2g 4-spice mix
170g DULCEY 35% chocolate
Use the sugar to make a dry caramel*.
Once it has taken on a golden brown color, add the melted butter then deglaze it using a hot mixture of cream and sugar.
Add a little of this mixture to the DULCEY 35% chocolate and stir it until the center of the mixture looks elastic.
Keep this emulsified texture as you gradually add in the remaining liquid. Mix to form a perfect emulsion.
Leave the caramel and DULCEY 35% chocolate crémeux to set in
the refrigerator for two hours before serving.

DULCEY 35% GLAZE
730g DULCEY 35% chocolate
70g Flavorless oil
Melt the DULCEY 35% chocolate at 105°F (40°C).
Add the oil and mix it in well.
Assembly and finishing
Make the caramel and DULCEY 35% crémeux. Cool and leave to set for at least 4 hours in the refrigerator. If the crémeux is too runny, mix it with a spatula to make it firmer.
Use a piping bag with a 12mm nozzle to pipe the caramel and DULCEY 35% crémeux into a hat shape on the cakes’ underside.
Store everything in the refrigerator for 1 hour, or 15 minutes in the freezer.
Make the glaze and dip the cakes in completely, then let any excess drain away and leave to set for 15 minutes.
