What is the "Saint Honoré" Cake ?
The story of a famous French pastry
According to legend, the famous cake was born in 1847 in Maison Chiboust (like the cream of the same name). The Chiboust pastry chef would have been inspired by a Bordeaux dessert: "Swiss flan". He would then have named his creation after the name of the street in which his business was established: rue Saint-Honoré in Paris. At the same time, he paid homage to the Patron Saint of bakers: St-Honoré.
The original recipe and its variations
Originally, the pastry chef Chiboust had simply filled a Parisian brioche with vanilla pastry cream. Some years later, Auguste Jullien, apprentice in the Chiboust house, will rework the recipe to give it its letters of nobility and its current form. He had the idea of using shortcrust pastry (or puff pastry) as a base for laying small "petis choux" garnished with chiboust cream (pastry cream + Italian meringue). The puffs (8 in number in the traditional recipe) are then fixed with caramel around the edge of the pastry base. The center of the entremets is then garnished either with pastry cream covered with whipped cream or with a chiboust cream poached with the famous "St Honoré" nozzle. It is this sleeve that gives these patterns so characteristic of the cake.
Today, the recipe is still evolving. The cream is often replaced by vanilla whipped cream or a chocolate whipped ganache.
How to preserve the Saint-Honoré ?
Cream-based pastries such as St-Honoré keep very poorly and do not tolerate the refrigerator well. The bottom of the dough and the puffs will become soggy with the moisture contained in the cream, and lose all their crispiness. The best thing is to eat them very quickly, the same day of preparation or purchase. In any case, these cream-based desserts should not be kept in the fridge for more than a day.
