The iconic and elegant Paris-Brest has been elevated with white-chocolate mascarpone cream and summer berries. This dessert is light as air, fruity and not too sweet – the perfection combination in the dessert world! You’ll love the creamy mascarpone cream filling! Paris-Brest is made with pâte à choux pastry dough, just like the kind used to make eclairs and cream puffs. The large circle pastry was originally created for a bicycle race, the big ring representing a bicycle wheel! And the idea stuck around for decades.
This Paris-Brest recipe can be used to make the large, traditional pastry, or for smaller, mini-versions. Also, you can added melted milk or dark chocolate to the whipped cream for a chocolate twist; or, use a bit of caramel for a more traditional flavor. Feel free to add your favorite fruit like raspberries, kiwi, mango, cherries, and even pineapple!
When I was making this dessert, I just couldn’t stop obsessing over how beautiful it was! It’s elegant and simple yet show-stopping! It’s perfect for any occasion or celebration.
