Servings: 10 large

Top compile the dessert:


1. Cut the sponge cake to fit into the bottom of you glasses or vessels of choice so that a small gap is left between the cake and the edge of the container.

2. Soak the cake with a small amount of cake syrup. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes or until frozen solid. (This prevents the cake from floating up to the top of the cremeux mixture later, ensuring smooth even layers.) 

3. Top each cake with an equally amount of the osmanthus cremeux. Place in the freezer to set up for 15-20 minutes.

4. Top the cremeux layer with an equally thick layer of panna cotta. Place back in the freezer to set up for 15-20 minutes.

5. Top the panna cotta layer with an equally thick layer of the osmanthus jelly, either mixing in the osmanthus flowers in now or waiting until it has set and placing the flowers on top. Let chill in the fridge for 1-3 hours before serving.




Nutrition Info:
Please note that I used MyFitnessPal to calculate this info, so it is not 100% accurate, AND I don't think it tracks net carbs, so a portion of the carbs listed may be processed by your body as fiber and not actually absorbed as energy.

net carbs = total carbs - dietary fiber (dietary fiber is what makes up about half of most sugar-alcohols (like isomalt), as well as most of the carbs in coconut flour)

Keep in mind that this recipe makes 10 LARGE servings, so if the carb count or calories are too high for you, you can always make the individual servings smaller.
