⦁ 9 tablespoons of flour

This recipe is divided into 2 parts.
First, you have to make the vanilla cream; next, you have to make the cakes, and then you have to decorate the dish according to your desire.
- To make the vanilla cream, you have to first chill the heavy cream in the refrigerator. Then place this heavy cream in a bowl of a stand mixer or simple medium-sized bowl so that it does not spill, and then start whisking it.
- Beat the heavy cream at a medium speed until it turns frothy, and then pour in your confectioner's sugar and vanilla extract.
- After adding those, increase the speed of your handheld electric mixer to a medium-high and beat the cream until soft peaks are formed.
- Once the soft peaks are formed, transfer the vanilla cream to a container, cover it completely and tightly and refrigerate until required to be used.
- To prepare the cakes, first, you have to take a mixing bowl, combine all the strawberries, add one tablespoon of granulated sugar, and then toss the ingredients completely to coat the strawberries and cover them. Then place them in the fridge for thirty-five minutes but stir them every ten minutes.
- Take a blender and add the egg whites, egg yolks, scrapings from the vanilla bean, flour, 3/8 cup remaining granulated sugar, and oil. Form a purée and blend it all till the batter mixture is completely smooth in consistency.
- Strain the batter so that there are no clumps, and use a spatula to push it all out through a fine mesh and into a clean bowl. Discard the leftover contents and then pout this batter into a whipped cream canister.
- Screw on the other components and insert a whipped cream cartridge into the canister so that you can charge it. After charging the Whipped Cream Canister with the Whipped Cream Charger. Shake the dispenser vigorously.
- Cut two small slits on the bottom side of the microwave-safe cups using any suitable tool. After completing the previous step, fill each cup up to 1/3rd of the cup by dispensing out the batter from the whipped cream canister.
- Microwave a single cup at a time, set the settings high, and set the microwave time for 40 seconds each. The cakes will puff up above or close to the rim but fall a bit back down once you take them out from the microwave.
- Flip each cup on a platter or a clean place and let it sit for one minute before removing them from their cup holders. Repeat the same procedure for the complete batch, and you can use a second whipped cream charger if required.
- Take a plate, place the cakes on it, pour some strawberries on top of it, then finally quenelle some vanilla cream on top of it, and then top it off with some fresh basil leaves, and your dessert is ready to be served.
Why are we using the Whipped Cream Canister for the cake batter?
A Whipped Cream Canister is one of the best blending tools present in the market. We are using this instead of any other handheld blender as it will add the fluffiness and soft and airy texture to our cakes that we want this recipe. If you use any other blender or beater, then your cakes might be dense when baked in the microwave or can also get a weird chewy texture that most egg products get in the microwave.
Are NO2 cartridges bad for the brain?
The NO2 cartridges are not bad for your brain if used in an optimum quantity, but abusive use of anything is always harmful. For example, if you are exposed to extra harsh sunlight with oils on your body, you are surely going to get burned; the same is the case here. For example, if you overexpose yourself of the NO2 cartridges, they may become toxic, but if you follow the quantities in the recipe, it will not affect your brain.
For how long can I store the Batter and Vanilla Cream?
You can easily store your batter for days in the Whipped Cream Canister. All you have to do is keep the dispenser in a sideways position so that it does not choke the holes in the head and keeps the contents fresh in the refrigerator. For the vanilla cream, you can make it a day or two before the actual dessert-making day and keep it sealed in an airtight container in the fridge until it is required to be used.
What is a Whipped Cream Canister?
A Whipped Cream Canister, also known as a dispenser or siphon, is a handheld kitchen tool that mixes different ingredients quickly to provide a pillow-like airy and soft texture. This tool has a bottle that holds the contents you want to infuse together or ingredients you want to mix. Then there is a head that seals the air and has two holes, one to dispense the contents after infusing and the other to insert the cartridges of NO2 that helps with the whole process and provide the pressure required.
