Berry tartlets with Elderflower Cream

Beerentörtchen (3)

It’s summer. Maybe the weather is autumn-like (which is somehow typical German) but the strawberry stall is back at the Albertus-Magnus-Place and this means: It’s summer. They are selling strawberries from a local farmer and the special offer of the week were two Kilogram for five Euro! I did not hesitate and bought a basket for my beloved  boy friend. As I’m allergic against strawberries he had the two kilos for himself and so he had enough fruits to cook jam, to snack them pure and to bake a cake.

And as I like some cake as well we made come with blueberries for me as well. The base of this little tarteletts is Sablé Breton, which I found on Michas Grain de Sel, and which I topped with an elderflower flavoured cream and with berries (of course). The delicate flavour of elderflowers fits to the berries very well. The cream is very easy and contains just elderflower syrup and whipped cream. A perfect cake for lazy weekends!

We spent a great day in my parents garden. It was niece weather and niece people, so we could just relax.
