This a truly creamy coconut cream meringue. I took inspiration from various lemon meringue pies but I was looking for something less pungent than straight up lemon meringue. I think the whole secret to smooth pout the lemon flavor in general is FA Apple pie and FA meringue. For the coconut side FLV Sweet coconut is unbeatable but I wanted to help with the other 2 coconuts I had for different notes. To add creaminess FA Custard premium is my favourite and FW coconut cream pie give a good base. Probably all this could be done way easier and with fewer ingredients by an experienced mixer. After a few attempts I love the result. It needs a few days to settle up but after that it's creamy goodness. The % are a bit high for somebody but I feel they work for me. Sweetener is also optional but after trying both I prefer it with.
I would like to thank many mixer who I took inspiration from , expecially DazCole, but I don't remeber all the recepies I looked at, so thank you mixer community!
p.s . If you feel the lemon still pungent, add a few drops of TFA Smooth or similar.
This my 3rd attempt to create a very rich caramel filling that you might mind in pastries. This recipe doesn't include any pastry/cake notes to me, it's mostly a rich filling. definetly very creamy and rich. Might be too rich for an ADV but I love it.
My notes are these:
FW caramel salted is the star of the recipe, and definetly the strongest flavor, I really enjoy it but I think it needs support
FLV cupcake batter I think it gives the body to the3 salted caramel adding mouthfeel and general sweetness
FA torrone and tosted almond this is my attempt to give some nutty note but avoid the dryness of general nuts, I think torrone and toasted almond do a god job in this
Fa meringue... I put this awsome ingredient in a lot of recipes and I love it, I think it enhanches the almond aspect without muting and adding mouthfeel
CAP butter cream is in here because I'm trying to make a very creamy caramel, very vey rich, and not a too dark caramel
Fw butterscoth ripple in my head acts as an opposite to the lighter tones of the caramel enhancing the deeper sugar notes
TPA vanilla custard is there because I'm a big fan of custard and I didn't want it too hevay as CAP VC v1 but still present. This might be changed with vanilla swirl for a lighter version
Sweetener is there manily because I like it personally in this kind of recipes.
This is a work in progress and what I just wrote might be complete rubbish for most experienced mixers, any suggestion is highly appreciated. I'm a nobody and this is my first recipe published here so don't be too cruel!
