A very old fashioned dessert but nobody refuses this absolutely delicious chocolate mousse! Actually it might be the dessert İ make most, and not for the last reason that it is also Lara’s favorite dessert!
For serving; serve in separate cups, or on a plate with some good vanilla ice cream, or just some self made chocolate sauce!
For 4 large portions you need:
You do need a hand mixer for this recipe!
200 grams dark chocolate (İ use half 54% and half 70% chocolate to just get the right darkness, not too sweet, not too dry)
1/2 table spoon butter
1 dl strong coffee
3 egg whites
2 egg yolks
1 dl cream
2 table spoons of sugar
Melt the chocolate au bain marie, by breaking the chocolate roughly is smaller bit, put it is a bowl and place the bowl in a pan with very hot water (can be slightly boiling)
İ add 2 table spoons boiling water from the pan with the chocolate, add the butter and the coffee and whisk until you have a smooth creamy chocolate mixture.
Split the eggs in 2 separate bowls. And also prepare the cream in a separate bowl
First whisk the egg white really stiff, then İ whisk the cream stiff too and the last one are the egg yolks with the sugar. Whisk them until you get a nice, fluffy mixture. İf you do it in this order, you do not need to clean the whisks in between the jobs.
Then, this also has to be done in the right order to get a good and airy pudding:
Mix the egg yolk mixture with the melted smooth chocolate (a little bit cooled down since you did the other whisking work). Mix in a part of the stiff egg whites (like a full table spoon), whisk it is airy, no more with the mixer.
Then in a big bowl, first the stiff egg whites, then on that the cream and at last the chocolate mixture.
Mix this all together gently, airy but that it is all well mixed.
Place in the fridge to cool down and set.
You will enjoy this…. a lot!
