Mille feuille with maple syrup
4-6 portions

Ingredients

  • 350g fresh raspberries (washed)
  • 320g pre-rolled puff pastry
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 25g maple sugar
  • 100ml maple syrup (preferably golden colour for its delicate flavour)
  • 200ml whole milk
  • 20g plain flour
  • 150ml double cream

Method

To make the pastry:

  1. Pre-heat oven at 220C
  2. Take the pastry out from the fridge and leave to rest for 10 mins
  3. Place onto grease proof paper and onto a tray
  4. Prick the top of the pastry with a fork in several places. Beat one of your eggs in a bowl and brush over the pastry
  5. Place a second greased tray on top so the pastry in sandwiched in between
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes until crisp
  7. Remove from the oven and whilst hot slice into four equal strips and leave to cool on a wire rack

To make the custard:

  1. In a large bowl, add one whole egg and an extra egg yolk, sugar and maple syrup and mix until smooth
  2. Sieve the flour then whisk into the mixture
  3. Warm the milk in a pan on a gentle heat until simmering
  4. Whisk the milk into the mixture until completely combined
  5. Add everything back into the pan and whisk continuously until it becomes thick
  6. Take off the heat and pour into a container
  7. Cover with cling film and refrigerate

To assemble:

  1. Whip the double cream and fold in the custard mixture
  2. Layer the pastry sheets, custard and fruit on top each other and repeat until you have three layers, starting and ending with the pastry

Chef’s tips: Once baked, handle the pastry sheets with care as they break easily. If one happens to break use this as the bottom slice. If you’re short of time, the custard and pastry can be made a day before and assembled before serving.

More about Maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest.

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter doesn't contain any butter, or dairy products.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree – that’s all.
