  • 1 spoon with vanilla sugar

Ingredients for the raspberry jelly:
  • 800 grams of raspberry
  • 80 grams of sugar

Prepare the wlanut dough layers:

Mix the ground walnuts with the ground almonds and the flour. Add also the salt.

Beat the 2 entire eggs for a few seconds then pour over the flour/nuts mixture.

Beat the egg yolks with the sugar for a few minutes until it doubles the volume.
Add the flour and mix slowly.

Heat the milk with the vanilla sugar and, when it starts boiling, add the egg composition and mix until it gets thick like a pudding.

Hydrate the gelatin sheets and add it in the warm milk / egg composition. Let it cool!

Beat the mascarpone cheese for a few seconds and add over the cooled milk / egg composition. Mix well.

Beat the fresh cream with a spoon with sugar.

Add the cream in the mascarpone/cheese composition.
