- 75g semi-salted butter
- 75g sugar
- 65g slivered almonds
- 15g ordinary flour
Prepare a butter pomade before adding the sugar and then the slivered almonds and the flour.

- 1,5g baking powder
- 30g melted butter
Break the eggs and add the sugar and the almond powder and mix vigorously with a whip.

Spread on a baking tray covered with a baking sheet of the size of the crusty cake and bake for 15 minutes at 170°C (340°F).
When the génoise is cold, stick it on the crusty cake (of the same size) with some raspberry jam.
Bramble raspberries crémeux
- 3 yolks
- 25g caster sugar
- 100g bramble raspberry pulp
- 1,5g gelatine
- 38g soft butter
Blanch the yolks with the sugar, and add the bramble raspberry pulp while stirring.
Away from the heat, incorporate the gelatine, which you will have mixed with 6 times its volume of water, and then the butter.
Pour the crémeux into the silicone mould (cork shaped), making sure that you place a big raspberry at the centre and put everything to freeze.
Rennes Honey Mousse
- 95g honey
- 3 yolks
- 15g white chocolate
- 6g powder gelatine
- 260g whipping cream
Bake the honey at 135°C (235°F) and pour it on the yolks while whipping vigorously to obtain a mousse texture.
Warm up the white chocolate in a bain-marie and add a bit of cream and the gelatine, which you will have mixed in 6 times its volume of water previously.
To finish, mix with the honey and the white chocolate ganache and incorporate the raised whipping cream.
Garnish the silicone mould (pebble or half-sphere shaped) with the honey mousse.
Unmould the bramble raspberry crémeux and place it in the middle of the honey mousse. Put everything to freeze.

- 135g water
- 150g white chocolate
- 75g caster sugar
- 150g glucose
- 100g concentrated milk
- A few drops of pink colouring
Mix the gelatine with 60g of cold water and leave to rest for about 10 minutes.
Thinly chop the white chocolate and pour it into a recipient.
Bring to a boil the remaining water (75g), the sugar and the glucose. Bake at 103°C (215°F) and add the concentrated milk and the gelatine.
Pour the chocolate and mix to melt. Colour to your taste and by adding a few drops of pink colouring.
To finish, unmould the crémeux on their mousse when they are still frozen and ice them with a pink icing.
