Giant Flakie Passion
It’s the ultimate summer dessert! Fresh, easy to execute, one of a kind, and which automatically brings you back to childhood (I ate Vachon cakes myself!!) and which has a WOAHHHHWWOOWW effect!!
Each of the 3 elements can be prepared in advance (even the day before) and assembled at the last minute.

In a cauldron, heat the cream and vanilla over low heat.
Add the starch dissolved in the milk, then the maple syrup and ricotta.
Stir well, heating over low heat to obtain a very smooth cream.

Adjust the sugar and acidity to your taste (maple syrup vs lemon juice).
Stir well and transfer to a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let cool completely in the fridge.
