Bring the water, milk, butter and salt to a boil over a medium heat stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and add the flour, mixing thoroughly to avoid any lumps being formed. Once a smooth paste has been achieved place over a low heat while stirring to dry the mixture out. It must reach the stage where it stops sticking to the sides of the saucepan and the spatula. Slowly add the eggs to reach the desired consistency. Pipe onto a perforated tray covered with a Silform® mat 3cm choux puffs. After piping cover choux pastry with prepared sable before baking at 130˚C for 15 minutes. Increase the temperature in the oven to 170°C until golden brown. Dry out before removing from the oven.

Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Chocolate-Mousse-RecipeOne of the most common questions I am asked is how to make the best chocolate mousse recipe. Ultimately, chocolate mousse is generally based on the quality of ingredients used. I actually have three favourite chocolate mousse recipes with different textures and mouth feels.

Chocolate Mousse
775ml Bulla Thickened Cream 35% fat
125g Water
125g Caster Sugar
125g Liquid Glucose
750g Callebaut Dark couverture

Semi whip the Bulla thickened cream and set aside in the fridge until required. Boil the sugar, water and glucose in a saucepan, pour over the chopped couverture, whisk by hand until all the chocolate has melted and then fold through semi whipped cream.
Leave in fridge for 3-4 hours to set. For a chocolate mousse cake you may either have to increase the couverture quantity slightly or add a small amount of gelatine. This is a great egg free chocolate mousse.

Note: This chocolate mousse recipe will create rich and quite heavy chocolate mousse.
