2 to 3 oreo cookies - remove the cream layer inside the oreo cookies.
60g white chocolate
1. Place flour, sugar, salt in a food processor and process to mix, then add butter and milk. Re-process the machine and run until blended well (until the dough turns like a crumbly ball).
2. Transfer the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead it to shape into a circle. Roll out the dough to about 0.3 to 0.5 cm thickness square shape and cut them into a long stick shape using the knife.
3. Place them on the baking sheet you prepared.
4. Bake them for about 8 to 10 mins preheated oven (180℃). Let the pocky cool down completely.
5. Process the cookies to a fine crumb in a food processor. Set aside.
6. Melt the white chocolate in a hot water bath (50℃), brush the chocolate all sides of pocky, let the excess drip off. Immediately sprinkle oreo crumbs over the chocolate. Repeat all pocky to finish. Place on the plate and chill until chocolate has set.
1. Remove the cream layer inside the oreo cookies, and crush oreos in a blender or food processor until you have fine crumbs. Set aside.
2. In a bowl whisk together eggs, sugar and salt using a egg wishk. Pour the milk into the egg mixture slowly, gradually and mix well.
3. Add the sifted flour and black cocoa powder and mix well until the batter is integrated.
4. Strain the crepe mixture through a fine sieve. Add the melted butter and mix well. Cover with plastic wrap and let it sit at room temperature for about 30min to 1h or even overnight.
Cooking the crepes :
5. Heat about 20 cm non-stick pan on medium heat. Once the pan is hot, brush with oil and remove the excess with a paper towel (a thin application, only the first time is fine). Pour enough batter to cover the bottom of the pan and swirl it to coat evenly. Once the batter is dry and the edges start to dry, flip the crepe with your hand. Let it cook on the other side for a few seconds. Then transfer to a plate to cool down. Repeat the same until the batter finished.
6. Once cooled completely, use a 18 cm round plate or cake bottom as a guide and cut off crepe in excess.
Putting it all together :
7. Whip chilled Whipping Cream (400ml) for a few second, add granulated sugar (60g), and beat until stiff peaks form.
NOTE : if your cream is less than 35% fat, then I recommend you to add whipped cream stabilizer (I used "cremfix" here). In that case, mix cream stabilizer to the sugar ahead of this step. Add when your cream is reaching soft peak.
8. Now spread a good amount of cream evenly over one crepe. Cover with another crepe and repeat until all have been used. Finally cover the cake with cream (sides too).
9. Sprinkle oreo powder over the top and sides. Let chill in the fridge for a few hours until it has set.
4g gelatin sheets - soak in the water for about 5 min before usage
For the chocolate layer :
100ml heavy cream/whipping cream
150ml whole milk
120g milk chocolate - cut into small pieces
4g gelatin sheets - soak in the water for about 5 min before usage
1/2 tbsp sugar (optional)
Making the bottom layer
1. Line the bottom of a 18 cm circle cake pan (removable bottom) with parchment paper.
2. Process flour, almond powder, sugar, salt and coffee powder in a food processor for a few seconds and then add butter. Process until mixture becomes crumbly : do not process too much as the dough should be crumbly.
3. Spread the crumbs onto the baking sheet and bake for about 25 mins at 160℃. Remove from the oven. While the crumbs is hot, press them into the bottom, using a spatula. Set the cake pan aside in the fridge.
Making the cream layer
4. Remove the cream layer inside the oreo cookies. Crush the cookies. Set aside.
5. In a bowl, add mascarpone and kiri and mix with a electric hand mixer. Add sugar and mix. Then add vanilla syrup and mix.
6. Soak the gelatin sheet in the water for about 5 min. In a microwave safe bowl, add the soaked gelatin sheet and microwave for 15 sec at 600W. Gently pour the melted gelatin into a cheese mixture (step 5) and mix well until smooth.
7. In an another bowl, beat heavy cream until soft peaks. Add the whipped cream into the cheese mixture (step 6) gradually and mix well. Add the crushed oreo (step4) and mix.
8. Transfer oreo cream over the cookies base which you have made at step 3. Let it set in the fridge.
Making the chocolate layer (once the cream layer has set.)
9. In a cooking pan, add haevy cream and milk and sugar (optional) and heat over medium heat. When it has almost boiled, remove from the heat and add chocolate. Mix well until the chocolate is melted completely. Using a fine mesh filter, strain the chocolate mixture into a heat-safe bowl. In a microwave safe bowl, add the *soaked*gelatin sheet and microwave for 15 sec at 600W. Pour into a chocolate mixture and mix well.
10. Once the chocolate mixture is at room temperature, gently pour over the oreo cream layer and chil in the fridge until it has set.
11. Unmold the cake and serve:)
Tip on How to unmold : wet a towel with hot water and apply to the side of cake pan gently. Place the cake mold onto the jar (like a jam jar) and slide the side or the cake pan down.
1. Remove the cream layer inside the oreo cookies, process the cookies to a fine crumb in a food processor.
2. In a small bowl, sift the flour and then add the oreo fine crumbs from #1 and mix. Set aside.
3. In a medium saucepan, add water, milk, salt, butter and sugar. Heat until the butter is melted and the mixture start boiling (remove from the heat just before it boils). Add the flour mix from #2 and mix them to combine evenly using a wooden spoon. The dough will lump and pull away from the saucepan easily.
4. Spoon the dough into a pastry piping bag fitted with a star tip. Add enough oil to a saucepan and heat to about 180°C over medium heat.
5. Squeeze the dough into the hot oil and cut it to release into the oil with scissors. Fry the churros on each side.
6. Transfer them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain, roll in sugar all sides to coat. Repeat this process with the remaining dough.
1. Remove the cream layer inside the oreo cookies. Crush the cookies. Set aside.
2. Cut a piece of parchment paper to cover the bottom and sides of a 26x30cm jelly-roll pan.
3. Sift flour, cocoa and coffee powder into a medium bowl and set aside. Pre-heat the oven to 190C degree.
4. Beat the eggs and sugar with an electric hand mixer in another medium bowl, using a hot bath until it gets creamy.
5. Add the sifted flour mixture and mix gently using spatula until smooth.
6. In a small cup, add butter and milk and microwave it for 15sec at 600W. Gently mix until completely melted. Then add into the mixture gently. Mix well to combine.
7. Pour the batter into the prepared sheet pan, flatten the surface with a spatula. Tap gently the bottom of the pan to punch out the air.
8. Bake for about 12 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.
9. Remove from the oven, immediately loosen the edges of the cake from the pan gently. Flip the cake upside down. Peel off the parchment paper from the cake (I even use A4 paper sheets sometimes!). Cover the cake and let it cool down completely.
10. Combine sugar and heavy cream in a bowl and whip until firm-peak. Add crushed oreo and mix.
NOTE : if your cream is less than 35% fat, I recommend you to add whipped cream stabilizer (I used "cremfix" here). In that case, mix cream stabilizer to the sugar ahead of this step. Add when your cream is getting a soft peak, then continue to beat until firm-peak.
11. Spread the whipped cream from #10. Spread more thinly along the front edge of the cake (the part that will be rolled last).
12. Roll the cake together with the parchment paper and then tighten the paper to firm it up. Wrap the paper firmly around the cake. Refrigerate a few hours to set.
*1.*_Start with the filling cream:_ beat whipping cream and sugar until soft peaks form. Add cream cheese and mix well. Set aside.
2. Remove the cream layer inside the oreo cookies. Crush the cookies. Then add the oreo crumbs into the cream mixture from #1. Mix.
3. Prepare the "silicone mould" (here I used a 4cm diameter * 15-hole mould). Place the oreo filling cream in each hole.
4. Flatten the surface, using a spoon or anything else you like. Place in the freezer until it is frozen. I usually make it one day before I want to eat mochi.
5.Mochi time! Once the cream is frozen, start preparing the mochi mixture : In a microwave-safe glass bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder and sugar. Stir to combine. Add the water slowly and mix with an egg beater until smooth. Cover lightly the bowl with cling wrap.
6. Microwave the mixture for 1 minute. Then stir the dough with a spatula. put it back in the microwave again for another minute and stir lightly. Put it back in the microwave for 30 seconds now (*not* 1 min!) and stir. And then once more for microwave it 30 seconds and then stir. The mixture should now be very thick and translucent.
7. Transfer the mochi dough on your working surface floured with katakuriko/potato starch. Be careful, it is very hot so you should use a spatula. Cut the mochi into 15 equal pieces. Don't forget to coat your hand with katakuriko/potato starch.
8. With your hands, take one of these pieces and flatten it into a circle. Then take a frozen oreo cream filling from the freezer and put it in the middle of the mochi disc. Pull out the cream fillings one at a time from the freezer as they will melt and soften quickly. Pull the edges of the dough disc together to cover the cream ball. Press together the edges to seal well. Smoothen the mochi by rolling it on the dusted board.
