Before 2014 draws to a close, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you for following me here, as well as on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
In 2015 I am planning to post more healthy breakfast and snack ideas. I am also developing some bread recipes, both GFCF and GAPS, which I hope be able to have ready for you soon. And I would like to cook more desserts that are free of gluten, dairy and refined sugar – so watch this space.
In the meantime, with no apologies, here is a chocoholic’s dream of a recipe for dairy-free chocolate mousse. Enjoy!
300 g dark chocolate (I use Green & Black’s cooking chocolate)
40 g cocoa powder (again, I use Green & Black’s)
80 ml hot water
2 egg yolks
6 egg whites
200 g caster sugar
Break the chocolate into squares and melt in a bowl over a pan of hot water, on the hob.
Mix the hot water and the cocoa powder to form a thick paste. Combine with the melted chocolate and egg yolks and mix well. Set aside to cool.
Whip the egg whites, gradually adding the sugar.
Add a third of the egg whites into the chocolate batter, mixing well, then fold in the rest carefully.
Put the mixture into a large bowl or eight small bowls, glasses or ramekins.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.
