Salacious Strawberry Coconut Tart Ingredients
1 cup of sugar
3/4 cup of flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/3 cup of coconut flakes or shredded coconut
3 cups of cream
2 packages of vanilla sugar
1 cup of chocolate sauce or chocolate syrup (strawberry syrup can be substituted)
Salacious Strawberry Coconut Tart Recipe Directions
Set the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit to preheat. While the oven is warming, wash and hull the strawberries (use the hulls, if you wish!). Gently pat the strawberries dry and set them aside.
For the Dough:
Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Add the yolks, 3/4 cup of sugar, and 3 tablespoons of warm water to a mixing bowl and stir until the mixture is frothy and uniform.
Whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Mix together the baking soda, flour, and one tablespoon of the coconut. Stir that mixture into the egg yolk mixture and then gently add the stiff egg whites.
Place the dough onto a baking tray (place parchment paper on the baking tray to avoid excessive sticking). Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden.
For the Cream:
Cube 2/3 of the washed, hulled, and dried strawberries. Thinly slice the other 1/3 of the strawberries.
Whip the cream, adding the rest of the sugar, the vanilla sugar, and two tablespoons of coconut flakes. When whipped, gently stir in the strawberry cubes. Following the instructions on the package of the gelatin sheets, dissolve the 12 sheets and fold them carefully into the cream.
When the dough is finished, spread 2/3 of the chocolate sauce (or syrup) over the tart and sprinkle coconut flakes over it. Cover with cream. Place the sliced strawberries on top of the cream. Drizzle the remaining 1/3 of top of the garnishing sliced strawberries and cream.
Cut evenly and serve to the drooling serfs!
