Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Author: Gemma Stafford
  • cups bittersweet chocolate (7 1⁄2 oz/213g)
  • ½ cup water (4 fl oz/115 ml)
  • 3 large eggs , separated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • Whipped cream to decorate
  1. Place the chocolate, coffee, and water in a Good Cook Gourmet 3 Quart Mixing Bowl heatproof bowl and set over a Good Cook Classic 2 Quart Sauce Pan of just simmering water. Don’t let the bottom of the bowl touch the water. Heat gently until the chocolate is melted.
  2. Remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly. Then swiftly stir in the egg yolks, vanilla and salt with a whisk until well combined. Take care not to ‘over mix’ as the fat in the chocolate will separate and your mix will appear oily.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form. You can do this by hand using a Good Cook Stainless Steel Whisk. Gently fold into the chocolate mixture in 2 batches. The fast you do this process the better as the chocolate starts to set.
  4. Spoon the mousse into individual dishes and chill for at least 6 hours or overnight. Top with softly whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
