Heat the egg whites with the sugar in a bain marie at 60°C. Whip until firm. Pipe little balls. Bake at 80°C for 2h.
Mix the yuzu lemon purée with half of the sugar (1) very thoroughly. Combine the rest of the sugar (1) with the custard powder and dessert jelly. Add the yolks, eggs and purée/sugar (1) mixture. In a saucepan, add the lemon juice and the previous mixture. Bring to a boil while stirring. At the end of the cooking time, add the cold butter in small cubes and mix for 5 minutes.

This recipe’s originality comes from its yuzu core dipped in Excellence Cream. And, because a Mont-Blanc always has some Chantilly cream, this version uses it to encircle the generous yuzu core.
The Mont-Blanc dessert was invented in Italy at the end of the 15th century and introduced to France in the 17th century. Antoine Rupelmayer, the founder of Angelina, prepared it in individual sizes for the first time, in Paris in 1903. The dessert was already named after the highest mountain in Europe, recalling its journey from Italy to France.
