Strawberry Charlotte / Jordbær Charlotte

A charlotte is a type of dessert or trifle that can be served hot or cold. It can also be known as an “ice-box cake”. Bread, sponge cake or biscuits/cookies or in this case sliced bananas are used to line a mold, which is then filled with a fruit puree, custardor ice cream. It can also be made using layers of bread or cake crumbs.

Classically, stale bread dipped in butter was used as the lining, but sponge cake or ladyfingers may be used today. The filling may be covered with a thin layer of similarly flavoured gelatin.
