1 Choux pastry and craquelin

Choux pastry : Bring milk, salt and butter to a boil. Add the flour out of the heat. Drain 1 min in the pan over high heat, then 2 min in the mixer bowl using the slow speed paddle. Add the eggs little by little, taking care of the corner in order to keep the choux pastry homogeneous.

Craquelin : put the soft butter in a vat with the sugar and mix. Once the mixture is homogeneous, add the flour. Spread between 2 baked sheets in a 2 mm thick layer. Let cool in the freezer, then cut out circles.

2 Banana purée

Melt the butter and sugar in a saucepan. When the mixture foams, add the bananas in slices and mix well.
Add vanilla sugar and simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Finally, add the lemon juice.

3 Cashew crunchy filling

Heat the crispy mixture slightly in the microwave or water bath, then spread it (about 5mm thick) on a baking sheet between two sheets of baking paper. Put in the cold.

4 Banana whipped cream

Peel the bananas into slices and mix them by adding the lemon juice and sugar.
In a very cold bowl, whip the cold cream into a firm whipped cream and gently stir in the banana purée.
Straighten up with a piping bag.
