Hmm.....have been craving for chocolate lately. My dear friend has passed me some rich and nice chocolate from Singapore. I don't know why they don't sell it here....???
I don't want to waste it on something i'm not confident with, so i came up with this Classic Chocolate Mousse....Actually it was a recipe i searched online long time ago, but can't really remember the add of it. I remembered it was with a video, which i can see exactly how to make the mousse. I did jot down the details of it, keep it until now without trying...haha!
Here's the recipe...
120g Good quality Chocolate
30g Unsalted butter
6 Egg yolks
6 Egg whites
1 cup Whipped Cream
~ Double boil (melted) the chocolate, add in butter and stir well
~ Cool the chocolate slightly then add in egg yolks one at a time, mix well
~ Whisk egg white until they are foamy and begining to hold a shape
~ Add in sugar and beat until soft peak formed
~ Add into the chocolate mixture (separate the egg whites into 3 portion, so that its easier to mix)
~ Fold gently in one direction
~ Whipped cream until soft peak form, add into mixture ( same as mixing the egg whites)
~ Fold gently until well combine
~ Spoons into cups or cake tin then chill till harden
** I spoons into cups then placed a thin slice of chocolate sponge cakein the middle and topped with the mousse again.
** For the cake, i used a 4.5" round tin, add a thin layer at the base then layered with mousse. Then add another layer of cake and topped with the mousse again
For the sponge...........
55g Cake flour
8g cocoa powder
30g Melted butter
~ Whisk at high speed the eggs, sugar, flour and water until light and fluffy
~ Lastly fold in the melted butter which is already mixed with cocoa powder
~ Pour mixture into a flat square or round 9" pan lined with cake paper.
~ Bake at 180'C for 25-30 minutes
** May cut the cake into 2 layers if its too thick
Result?!.....Its great! Everybody loves it!...:)
