Triple-chocolate trifle

Triple-chocolate trifle

dessert recipes | serves 12

Pure decadence with three types of chocolate. This makes one large trifle or 12 individual ones.

1. First make the mousse. Melt the butter in a saucepan over a low heat and add the chocolate, whisking until smooth, then set aside to cool.
2. In another bowl, whisk the egg whites and sugar until you get a 
semi-stiff meringue. Fold the two mixtures together and pour into your trifle dish, or 12 individual dishes. Chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
3. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4. In a bowl, whisk the eggs and yolk with the sugar until fluffy. Gently fold in the flour and cocoa. Pour into a lined 23cm baking dish and spread it out big enough to cut out to the size of your large trifle dish, or individual dishes. Bake for 6 minutes, until golden. Remove from the oven, leave to cool, then trim the sponge to fit and place on top of the mousse.
4. For the custard, place the gelatine in a bowl of cold water and set aside. Heat the cream, milk and sugar in a pan over a medium heat until almost at boiling point. Whisk in the milk chocolate, then the gelatine. Pass through a sieve and pour over the sponge layer. Leave to set in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
5. Before serving, whisk the cream and white chocolate in a bowl, until soft peaks form. Add to the trifle and top with dark chocolate shavings.
