Gateau St Honore Cake Pops


Gateau St Honore is a classic French dessert, named after Saint Honoré, the French Saint of bakers and pastry chefs. It's a beautiful combination of puff and choux pastry, filled with a smooth creme pat, and sandwiched with vanilla chantilly cream. We've transformed this classic bake and created bite-size versions of it, perfect when hosting a party!

Step 1

Heat the oven to 175 C fan.

Step 2

Using a small round cookie cutter or the rim of a small glass (shot glasses will work well), cut small circles out of the puff pastry and place them on lightly greased baking trays. Put them in the fridge while you make a choux pastry.

Step 3

To make the choux pastry, place the milk, water and butter in a medium saucepan and heat it up to melt the butter, but do not bring it to the boil. Tip all of the flour into the saucepan and beat it quickly with a wooden spoon or spatula until it all comes together. Cook the mixture for about a minute then transfer it to the bowl of a standing mixer to cool down a bit (about 5 minutes). Once it is cooled, add the eggs, one at a time, mixing it well after each addition. You should have a smooth and glossy mixture.

Step 4

Transfer the pastry into a piping bag with a large, plain nozzle.

Step 5

Take the puff pastry circles out of the fridge and pipe small balls of the choux pastry on top of them. They should be smaller than the puff pastry circles.

Step 6

Using the remaining choux pastry, pipe more small, even in size balls (you may have to use separate baking trays for this step, if you can't fit them on the same trays as puff pastry circles. You should have the same amount of pastry circles and choux balls.

Step 7

Using a wet finger, smooth any peaks on top of the balls.

Step 8

Place the baking trays in the oven and bake for 15- 20 minutes until puffed up and golden brown.

Step 9

Take out of the oven, allow them to cool for a couple of minutes, then using a small knife, pierce the bases of the small choux buns, and tops of the buns inside of the puff pastry circles.

For the filling

Step 1

Whisk the custard with 300 ml of double cream until it forms stiff peaks. Transfer to a piping bag with a small nozzle. Pipe the filling into both, the small choux buns and the ones inside of the puff pastry.

Step 2

Place 100 g of Tate & Lyle Caster Sugar in a pan and allow it to melt over high heat until it melts and starts to caramelise. Do not stir it! Working quickly, but very carefully, dip the tops of the small choux buns in the caramel and set aside to set.

Step 3

Whip the remaining 300 ml of double cream with 2 tbsp of caster sugar and vanilla bean paste. Transfer it to the piping bag with a large star nozzle.

Step 4

To assemble, pipe some whipped cream on top of the buns in puff pastry, then top with a small choux bun dipped in caramel.

Step 5

Push a lollipop stick or a skewer through each assembled bite and place in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Coming this week, our most peachy and irresistible crumble ever. A recipe too good not to share! 👀
Summer jam season... we've waited all year for this! 

Strawberries, raspberries and blackberries beware, because our Tate & Lyle Cane Jam Sugar is poised and ready...

Made using the juice of the sugarcane plant, it's blended with pectin to give homemade jams a sweet, fruity flavour and lush, spreadable texture.

What kind will you make?
The kids would love this one. But it’s for adults only sadly! 😉

A sweet, boozy party starter, you can have your cake and drink it with this citrusy Gin & Tonic Tart!

1 Tart pastry shell
1 Sheet leaf gelatin
1 Large lemon
2 Zest and juice
2 tbsp Gin
125g Tate & Lyle Fairtrade Pure Cane Caster Sugar
2 Large eggs
Plus 1 egg yolk
1tbsp Juniper berries
115g Butter Cubed and softened

Step 1
Place the gelatine sheets into a small bowl with water and set aside. Place the lemon juice, zest, gin, sugar and eggs in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add the cubed butter and gently crushed juniper berries and place the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water.

Step 2
Allow the butter to melt completely, then cook the curd for about 8- 15 minutes, stirring often, until it has thickened and resembles the consistency of custard. Remove from the heat and add the gelatine, squeezing the water out of it. Stir well and allow the gelatine to melt completely.

Step 3
Strain the curd through the sieve into a large bowl discarding the juniper berries. Cover the surface of the curd directly with the clingfilm to prevent the skin forming and set it aside to cool.

Step 4
Pour the citrus curd into the pastry case and transfer to the fridge for 2-3 hours, allowing it to set.

Step 5
To make the decoration and syrup, place the sugar and tonic water into a medium saucepan over a small heat and allow the sugar to melt. Bring the mixture to simmer, then add the sliced citrus and simmer for 30 more minutes. Remove the citrus and place it on a wire rack to cool. Allow the syrup to cool slightly, then add the gin and cool completely.

Step 6
Decorate the tart with slices of candied fruit and drizzle with some syrup before serving. You can also serve it with a dollop of whipped cream or crème fraiche.
Just a dash mind... You don't want it to end up tasting like a chippy!

Finally, somewhere that’s as big on doughnuts as you are!
As part of our Trusted By The Best series, we’ve been shining a spotlight on places that make our sugar shine, places just like Leeds’ Doh’hut...

Specialising in big, hearty, British-style doughnuts, they’re a welcome change from American chains - a shop that champions the jammy doughnuts we all grew up on! 

Inspired by the US food truck scene, Doh’hut founder Tom started out making doughnuts in his parent’s kitchen before eventually investing in his own food truck. 

Once on wheels, he quickly became a favourite at many foodie festivals and even won the prestigious British St. Food Awards in 2018! 

The success allowed Tom to set up Doh’hut’s permanent home in his native Leeds, followed by two more bakeries in London (Spitalfields & Exmouth Market)!

Focusing on handmade, fluffy and classic flavours, every doughnut is fried to perfection before being hand-rolled in a sweet layer of Tate & Lyle Sugar.

There’s no bells and whistles here. It’s just getting down to basics to make doughnuts the best they can be! 🏆
