HAPPY NEW YEAR!
WISHING EVERYONE GOOD HEALTH & PROSPERITY!
Recipe actually looks more intimidating than it actually is. I made the posset first because it needed time to set. And after making the posset, everything seemed to fall into place quite easily. :) I pour the lemon posset into 3 mini shallow pie dishes..I think if I read correctly, as long as the posset is not above 3/4" should be ok.
I had clarified butter in my fridge. So I just measured out from that small plastic container on the left, right in front of the French Pear Gelee.
Next, I made the sponge cake.
Since I have Hong Kong flour or what we call here as Super Lite flour, which is lighter/same as Pastry Flour? (not sure!). I used that instead of substituting. Worked very well.
You can see I used the tiny mixing bowl. Only little batter, so small bowl beats up better imo.
The mini sponge cakes out of the oven. They were so fragile, I was afraid of damaging them.
The first few came out beautifully, the last 2 not so good...but still ok, no major damage.
I searched high and low for Apple Jelly! Finally found this French Pear Gelee. I figured they will work the same... apple and pear same family right? lol!... and Gelee sounds like Jelly..so must be same too. LOL!
Mixed 1/4 cup with water.
Microwave till liquid.
Reminder to myself. Next time microwave only when you need to use it! It hardens up again quite fast!
All syrup & glazed!
The in-between waiting made me a bit impatient...but time passed by quickly because I was baking pineapple tarts at the same time. :)
Posset out from the fridge and the top part is hardened with oil/fats!
Put the top part and then put back in fridge.
All filled up..but I couldn't wait to try! LOL!
Ok.. at least I waited for them to rest 1 hour in the fridge and took it out to try!
The lemon posset still not set yet..but it tasted sooo good!!
The next day, after overnight in the fridge, the posset finally hardened totally. No more dripping posset..
Still as yummy! A bit of sweetness and a bit of tartness.
Nice balance of flavors.
