How to Make Raspberry Charlotte


  • 1In a small bowl stir together the gelatin and 1/4 cup of the raspberry puree. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes and then microwave for a few seconds to dissolve the gelatin. When the gelatin has dissolved, stir it into the remaining puree. Transfer the mixture into a larger bowl ontop of an ice bath.
  • 2Beat the cream until stiff peaks form, then fold it into the puree mixture (which is still resting over the ice bath).
  • 3Line your dish with the ladyfingers, adding your raspberry cream then another layer of ladyfingers, until you end with a smooth layer of the cream on top. Garnish with raspberries. Let it rest in the fridge for several hours.
