Passionfruit coconut caramels with lychee granita


You'll need to begin this recipe the day before.

You'll need

250 gm (about 18) lychee flesh 200 gm light palm sugar, finely crushed 185 ml (¾ cup) coconut cream 80 ml (1/3 cup) pouring cream 2 eggs 2 egg yolks 80 ml (1/3 cup) passionfruit juice To serve: peeled lychees

Method

  • 01
  • Blend lychees in a food processor until smooth. Push through a fine sieve, discarding solids, and freeze. Scrape into ice crystals using a fork and return to freezer until required.
  • 02
  • Combine 100gm palm sugar and ½ cup water in a small saucepan and stir over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, then bring to the boil and cook for 4-5 minutes or until caramelised. Remove from heat and pour into six ½ cup-capacity ovenproof dariole moulds and set aside.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 150C. Combine remaining palm sugar, coconut cream and cream in a saucepan and stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves, then bring just to the boil. Whisk eggs, yolks and juice to combine, pour over cream mixture, whisking to combine, then strain into a jug. Pour into prepared moulds and place in a roasting pan. Fill pan halfway up sides of moulds with boiling water, cover pan with foil and bake for 15 minutes or until just set. Remove moulds from water and refrigerate until cold.
  • 04
  • To serve, dip mould bases in boiling water, invert onto plates and unmould. Serve with lychee granita and peeled lychees.

Note To make passionfruit juice, blend passionfruit pulp in a food processor to crack seeds, then strain through a fine sieve. Twelve passionfruit yield about 1 cup of juice.
