How to Make Easy Chocolate Mousse Dessert with Cream
Easiest Chocolate Dessert Ever!
Chocolate, Creamy and Delicious.
Chocolate seems to be everyone's favorite. I love this recipe because it is so easy and fun to make for a school event or fundraiser (like a bake sale, especially when they are sold in slices). It can be frosted with chocolate frosting, or dusted with powdered sugar if you are trying to limit calories. It is the kind of recipe that's easy as pie, melts in your mouth, and almost always gets a recipe request. Try it yourself and see if you don't agree.
Here is the Recipe:
150 grams bittersweet chocolate
200 grams butter or good quality margarine
4 eggs, separated. Beat the whites to stiff peaks and put in a covered bowl in the refrigerator
1/2 cup white sugar
2 T. flour
1 rounded teaspoon baking powder
Mix four egg yolks and sugar to be a fine consistence. Slowly add the flour and baking powder and continue mixing. It can be all mixed by hand.
Now melt the chocolate and butter. On the stove or microwave, cook to melt slowly at a low or slightly higher temperature. This protects the chocolate flavor. Both chocolate and butter lose flavor if over heated.
Add the chocolate mixture to the bowl, mixing well. Be sure to consult the video on successful chocolate melting on the video link below - it's easy and won't burn if you follow the tips shown in the clip.
When the mixture is a uniform consistency and color, add stiffly beaten egg whites by spoonfuls.
Bake in the oven, preferably in a semi-shallow Bundt pan for 20-25 minutes at 325 F. or 180 C.
After cooling, prepare and coat the top of the cake with the following cream:
1/2 liter whipping cream
200 grams bittersweet chocolate
Melt the two together and pour over the cake. It will "drink" the frosting. Let stand 1 hour and serve. This cake never survives more than 24 hours in my home! In fact, I try to have 300 grams of baking chocolate in the house at all times, as the best remedy for dark chocolate cravings.
