Golden Raisin Getaway

Submitted by: Kaitlyn Guest, R&D Chef, Gold Coast Ingredients

I wanted to create a baked good similar to an entremet, with different layers of contrasting flavors and textures. I gave it a tropical theme in honor of my Mom retiring this year, I wanted her to be able to eat one and imagine she was in the tropics!

  • Using a dough hook, mix all ingredients except butter, on 1st speed until blended. Increase to medium speed and mix for approximately 15 minutes, until dough pulls away from sides of bowl and gluten begins to develop.
  • Continue mixing on medium speed and begin adding softened butter in stages, approximately 80-100g per addition, until all butter is incorporated.
  • Cover and allow to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.

  • Mix all ingredients until well blended. The mix should be dry and crumbly.
  • Spread mix evenly on sheet tray and bake at 350F for 15 minutes, or until mix becomes light golden in color
  • Once cool, break up any large pieces and mix in whites until well combined.

  • Combine the water, passion fruit juice concentrate and raisins and allow to soak overnight.
  • Mix together the sugar and cornstarch and whisk into the raisin/juice mixture.
  • Place on the stove, and while stirring heat to a boil. Boil for 4-6 minutes until thickened and cornstarch is fully activated

  • Oil baking rings and set up on sheet trays lined with parchment.
  • In each ring place one scoop or approximately 50g of coconut crust. Press the coconut into the bottom of the rings.
  • Portion brioche dough into 55g pieces. Shape and press into baking rings on top of the coconut. Place smaller ring inside the dough allowing the brioche to proof into a cup/bowl shape.
  • Proof at 95F for 1 hour.
