Preparation Cakes with white chocolate mousse:

Melt the broken chocolate pieces together with the butter, oil and whipping cream, then leave to cool. Add the yolks, then sift flour and baking powder on top. Homogenize and flavor to taste with rum essence.

Mix the egg whites with a pinch of salt until they become a hard foam. Add the sugar and mix until you get a firm and shiny meringue. We will incorporate the meringue in the chocolate composition, mixing lightly with a spatula, with movements from bottom to top.

Pour the composition into a tray (20/30 cm) lined with baking paper and bake over medium heat for about 20 minutes, depending on the oven. Remove on a grill and leave to cool, along with the baking paper.

White chocolate mousse:

Gelatin is hydrated in cold water, enough water to cover the gelatin.

Pour half of the amount of whipped cream over the broken chocolate and melt over low heat, without boiling. Set aside, allow to cool as long as it is bearable on the finger and incorporate gelatin. Let it cool until the chocolate cream cools very well and begins to harden.

The rest of the whipped cream is mixed until fluffy. Mix the white chocolate cream a little, until it becomes homogeneous, then add the whipped cream and incorporate it, mixing lightly with a spatula, with movements from bottom to top. Flavor to taste with lemon juice.

Chocolate glaze:

The broken chocolate pieces are melted in a bain marie (or in the microwave). Then add milk little by little, until the chocolate icing reaches the desired consistency

We cut the top with a metal ring (6 cm in diameter), the same ring in which we will mount the cakes. We put a countertop circle in each ring and distribute the white chocolate mousse in each of them. Let cool until the cream hardens.

We take the cakes out of the molds and we & # 8222dichisim & # 8221 them with chocolate icing and chocolate truffles.

Recipe of chocolate mousse I have been asked many times. I kept saying it, but I never found the right time. So now I'm stubborn and I said to do it, sir, if people ask for it :). My chocolate mousse recipe contains egg whites and whipped cream in the composition, I've been doing this for a long time and I think it comes out the best. Of course there are many recipes, some more different than others.

For those who have a problem consuming raw egg whites, they can omit them and can prepare the chocolate mousse only with whipped cream. You can also beat the egg whites with the sugar on a steam bath to sterilize them. This chocolate mousse is good for anything. It can be consumed as such, along with fresh fruit, or it can be put in various cakes or cakes. It is extremely tasty, simply melts in your mouth and is the perfect dessert for chocolate lovers.

The perfect chocolate for this recipe is the bitter one. It must have a high cocoa content, at least 70-75%. Do not think that the chocolate foam will turn bitter. On the contrary, it will have only a rich taste of chocolate and will be sweet enough. Do not use milk chocolate because the recipe is not suitable for it. However, I promise to come back with a milk chocolate mousse recipe.

To serve as such, put the mousse in cups or small cups, using a pos and decorate them with grated chocolate, cocoa, or powdered sugar. Before being consumed, the chocolate foam must be left in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight. The mouse has a rich taste, a fine and airy texture and is the perfect dessert for the holiday hour.

Strawberry mousse and white chocolate

If you use fresh strawberries, pass them immediately with a blender. If you use the frozen version, then let them thaw and pass them through a blender. Mix the puree formed with the lemon juice.

Melt the chocolate in a bain marie and soak the gelatin in a little cold water.

Mix 60ml sour cream and powdered sugar in a pot and put them on the fire until they boil. Add soaked gelatin and mix well until dissolved. Pour everything over the melted chocolate and mix well. Then add the previously prepared strawberry puree.

Beat the remaining sour cream until you get a strong cream that you incorporate into the chocolate mixed with strawberries. You can add fresh strawberries in the mousse or you can leave it simple.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
