    Charlotte stories

    This is where the fun begins. Different sources point to different origins of charlotte. Some claim that this is an old German dish. Others say it's French. And someone is sure that the British came up with this sweet pastry. Let's try to understand this culinary issue. For example, many people say, referring to English recipes, that the name of the dish comes from the English word “charlyt”, which means a dish made from sugar, beaten eggs and milk. In England in the 15th century, a meat dish with the same name was also popular! Apparently, we can say that all the current types of charlotte originate from the English pudding. At least this version looks the most realistic. But others are also very entertaining and we suggest not to ignore them either.

    There is no doubt that the British invented pudding. And then from him (relatively recently) there was a charlotte. After all, pudding is prepared there from almost any product. So Charlotte was born, although initially it did not look like we are used to. In the old English version, it was a cold dessert - soaked slices of bread were stacked in layers mixed with chopped fruit. It was possible not to use bread, but pieces of biscuit, but the option with bread was more affordable. In any case, the slices were laid out in a small form, the middle was filled with stewed fruit. The most common option was apple charlotte. And slices of bread were dipped in melted butter, in fruit syrup, in wine, and, finally, in an egg-and-milk mixture.

    There is another version, with a royal flavor. The king of Great Britain in the 18th century was George III, his wife was called Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and she actively supported apple producers. There is a version that it was the Queen who came up with the wonderful Charlotte apple dessert based on the famous English pudding. The version is beautiful, but is it true?

    By the way, there is no less beautiful, and even a romantic version of the origin of charlotte. The legend says that a certain cook (again, an Englishman) was hopelessly in love with the girl Charlotte, for whom he created a marvelous apple dessert, naming it in honor of his beloved. That's just the name of the cook, where and when he lived - is unknown.

    The Frenchman Marie Antoine Karem, who lived at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th centuries, is also indicated as the creator of charlotte, was one of the "fathers" of the so-called haute cuisine. He came up with a new charlotte. They say it was in 1802. Instead of bread, Antoine laid out the form on the sides vertically with the famous Savoyardi cookies, and filled the middle with cream, but not simple - Bavarian on gelatin. He called this dish "Paris Charlotte", but here in 1814 Paris met the winner - Alexander the First. Karem prepared for him his masterpiece, which has since been called the “Russian Charlotte”.

    Well, aren't you tired of the versions yet? We almost forgot about the option that we are preparing today - charlotte with jam (the recipe is just below). What we have? Flour, eggs, sugar and jam. In the usual version, we use fresh apples. The jam is a bit like stewed fruit in the recipe for an old English charlotte. So all paths lead to Foggy Albion. And who first came up with the idea of ​​cooking charlotte with jam - no one knows. Like he doesn't know if it was charlotte with raspberry jam, or charlotte with strawberry jam, or maybe even charlotte with cherry jam. By the way, we will use plum jam. And you? Our advice - use your favorite.
