How to make Flavourless Chocolate Coffee Trifles

    Flourless Chocolate Cake


    • Line a Swiss roll pan with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 180 C
    • Place the egg whites in the clean bowl and beat to stiff peaks. Reserve. Place the chocolate and coffee in a heatproof bowl and microwave for a minute on high. Stir, repeat for 30 seconds until melted. Stir until smooth. Leave to cool slightly
    • Place the egg yolks in a large bowl. Beat on high speed until light, mousse and thick. Add the coffee extract and sugar and continue to beat for another 4-5 minutes
    • Stir in the chocolate mixture. Gently fold in 1 tbsp of the beaten egg whites to loosen the batter slightly
    • Gently fold in the remaining egg whites in two batches. Turn onto prepared tray, spread uniformly and bake for about 25-30 minutes, until dryish to touch
    • Sift over 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder and turn onto a clean kitchen towel. Leave to cool. Then crumble up into bite sized pieces


    Coffee Syrup


    • Place all ingredients in a small saucepan, and stir over low heat until the coffee mixes in. Take off heat. Leave to cool




    • Place all ingredients in a large bowl and bat to medium stiff peaks

Top with 1-2 tbsp of whipped coffee cream. Repeat with the remaining cake, syrup and cream. Top with bits of cake, sift over with cocoa powder or serve with chocolate shavings
