  • 50 g White chocolate eg. Callebaut WhiteChocolate (callets)
  • 100 g Heavy Cream 36% fat, very cold
  • 1 Gelatine sheet 1.7g gelatin


Start with coffee whipped ganache

  • Soak gelatine sheet into cold water
  • Place Callebaut WhiteChocolate (callets) it into a heatproof bowl
  • In a small saucepan bring heavy cream (the smaller amount) and freshly brewed coffee just into boil, remove from heat
  • Squeeze excess water out of the gelatin sheet and whisk it into the hot cream
  • Pour the hot heavy cream gelatin mixture over chocolate, let it stand for a few seconds then whisk until smooth
  • Once mixture slightly cooled (in about 5-10min) fold in rest of the cold heavy cream (the larger amount)
  • Cover the surface of the ganache with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight (min 8h) to set

  • In another bowl beat together eggs with sugar just until incorporated
  • Pour melted butter and chocolate mixture into the egg mixture, mix until combined then sift in the flour, cocoa powder and salt. Fold mixture just until combined, make sure you do not incorporate too much air
