CHOCOLATE MOUSSE CAKE
Serves 8 to 12
3 oz. (1 cup) desiccated coconut
2 oz. (1/4 cup) butter
1 ½ oz. (2 ½ Tbsp) baking Natvia or the equivalent of your sweetener of choice
5 oz. (1 ½ cups) almond meal
13 ½ oz. sugar free dark chocolate, chopped
2 oz. (1/4 cup) butter, softened
5 eggs, separated
3 oz. (1/3 cup) Natvia or the equivalent of your sweetener of choice
1 pint (2 cups) whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 pint (1 ½ cups) whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 oz. (1 Tbsp) Natvia or the equivalent of your sweetener of choice
1 oz. sugar free dark chocolate to serve
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line the base of a 9 inch springform cake tin with baking paper.
To make the base - toast the coconut in the cake tin for 5 minutes until golden.
Melt the butter and sweetener together in the microwave.
Tip the toasted coconut into a bowl, add the butter, Natvia and almond meal, stir well to combine. Tip into the lined cake tin and press into the base. Bake for 10 minutes, remove and place in the freezer to chill while you make the mousse.
To make the mousse - melt the chocolate and butter together in a large heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water. Stir until smooth, set aside to cool slightly.
Whip the egg whites and sweetener with electric beaters to form stiff peaks.
Whip the cream and vanilla with electric beaters to form soft peaks.
Stir the egg yolks into the cooled chocolate. Stir in half of the egg whites to loosen the mixture. Gently fold in the second half of the egg whites. Fold in the whipped cream, then pour on top of the cooled base.
To make the topping – whip the remaining cream, Natvia and vanilla to form soft peaks. Spoon over the chocolate mousse layer and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight to set.
Grate the remaining chocolate over the top to serve.
