How to prepare Fruit and chocolate puff pastry
To prepare the fruit and chocolate puff pastry, start by taking a round oven tray, or the base of a 12 inch (30 cm) diameter mold. Cover with a sheet of parchment paper cut to the same size 1, unroll a sheet of puff pastry and spread the strawberry jam over it with a teaspoon 2. Chop the dark chocolate, not too finely 3
Wash and destalk the strawberries 4, then cut them into slices 5; peel and cut the banana into oblique slices, roughly 5 mm in size 6.
Arrange the chopped chocolates into spokes, create 6 starting from the middle 7; distribute the banana slices over it, then the strawberry slices over the banana ones 8. Place the second disc of puff pastry on top and close it 9.
Carefully seal by pressing down on the spaces without fruit 10, then slice into the pastry between one spoke of fruit and the other, starting from around 3-4 cm from the middle all the way out to the edge 11, now fold a cut corner towards the inside of the slice 12;
proceed in the same way with the other part, folding it over 13 and making sure both fit as best as possible 14. Once the puff pastry wreathe is ready 15,
beat the egg 16, dab it all over the wreathe using a brush 17, then sprinkle the pumpkin seeds over the middle 18
and the sugar over the spokes (19-20); bake in a conventional oven preheated to 390°F (200°C) for 25 minutes, on the middle shelf. Once the fruit and chocolate puff pastry is ready, remove from the oven 21, leave to cool and then serve!
The fruit and chocolate puff pastry is best enjoyed freshly made, after leaving it to cool down. It can be stored for up to 2 days, under a glass cake cloche. Freezing is not recommended.
