Persimon® kaki Charlotte


  • 500 g “Persimon®” kaki
  • custard cream
  • Ladyfingers
  • Rum syrup

For the custard:

  • 250 ml milk
  • 250 ml cream
  • 50 g cornstarch
  • 125 g sugar
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 knob of butter
  • Half a lemon


For the syrup: mix all the ingredients and bring to a boil for 2 min. Remove and leave to cool.

For the custard: heat the milk, cream, vanilla open lengthwise and lemon peel in a pot. After boiling, remove from heat and leave to set for 30 min.

In a bowl, whip the yolks together with the sugar and cornstarch, mix with milk while continuing to whip, and place over low heat until it reaches a temperature of about 85ºC (just before breaking to a boil) while continuing to stir. Strain, scrape the vanilla seeds out and incorporate them in the cream. Add the butter and beat.

Peel the “Persimon®” kakis and cut into ball shapes, reserving the rest for the cream.

For the Persimon® kaki cream: mix equal parts of Persimon® kaki pulp and custard and set aside.

Bathe the ladyfingers in rum syrup, letting them soak just enough to prevent them from breaking up.

Assemble the charlotte in a mould placing the ladyfingers around the inside. Fill it with Persimon® kaki cream and leave to cool in the fridge.

To serve, place a few of tablespoons of custard lightened with a little milk on the base of the plate. Place the charlotte on top of the custard, decorate with Persimon® kaki balls and their peels marinated in the rum syrup, and sprinkle with ground cinnamon.
