Profile: Sesame dough ball with vanilla pudding filling
The journey to make this recipe has been long, but I'm very satisfied with the outcome.
Despite the simplicity of the recipe, the end result is a very complex flavor, that adds two layers of contrast to the mix.
To create the sesame dough ball, I tried various combinations of WF Sesame Dough with all kinds of bakeries. Everywhere from FA Cookie, to WF Deep Fried Pastry Dough, CAP Sugar Cookie etc. But every time, I found myself getting further and further away from the simplicity that I really wanted from a sesame ball. So in the end, I had to come to realize, that WF Sesame Dough on its own actually worked perfectly fine.
It has a sharpness of toasted sesame, but keeps the warmth and don't overdo the sharpness at all. It's nice and round in flavor and a little sticky in texture.
To help the stickiness be more upfront, I added a pinch of FA Meringue.
Concerning the pudding, I went though time and time again to figure out exactly what I wanted. I knew FLV Vanilla Pudding needed to be in this, as it has the great ability to be thick, almost borderline disgusting, but handled correctly you can get some really nice results with it.
To add a sort of eggy note to the filling, I danced around a few custards such as FA Custard Premium, FA Custard, but I always landed right back on INW Custard, as it brings those exact eggy notes I was after and doesn't add any taste that I didn't really need there.
To bridge the INW Custard and FLV Vanilla pudding, I'm using TFA Vanilla Swirl and its ability to smoothen everything out.
FA Meringue again brings a little sweetness and stickiness to the filling.
The contrast here is, that you'll start with the toasted sesame and a hint of dough. Before you know it, you're hit with the vanilla filling. Exactly as if you were actually eating a sesame ball with a vanilla filling.
This recipe is inspired by the vietnamese dessert "Báhn Cam", which usually consist of a mung bean filling, but despite me lacking any sort of bean flavor, it works perfectly fine with a vanilla filling instead.
Let it steep at least the recommended 5 days for the best result.
