Almond Joy Mousse Cake

Post  justmecookin on Thu Jun 26, 2008 8:45 pm

Almond Joy Mousse Cake

1 cup sweetened flake coconut
3/4 cup raw almonds
28 chocolate wafer cookies, such as Nabisco Famous
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
One 4-ounce bar bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup heavy cream
Hot fudge sauce, for serving

Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease a 9-inch springform pan. Place the coconut and almonds on opposite sides of a rimmed baking sheet. Transfer to the oven and bake, stirring the coconut once or twice, until lightly toasted, about 7 minutes. Let cool. (Keep the oven on.) Using a food processor, pulse the almonds until finely chopped. Return 1/2 cup chopped nuts to the baking sheet with the coconut and set aside.

Pulse the chocolate wafers with the remaining nuts in the food processor to make fine crumbs. Add the butter and pulse just until blended. Transfer the crumb mixture to the prepared springform pan and press into the bottom and 1 1/2 inches up the side. Bake for 5 minutes to set, then transfer to a rack to cool.

In the top of a double boiler, using a handheld electric mixer, beat the eggs, sugar and salt at high speed until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Place over simmering water and beat at high speed until doubled in size, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and the reserved nuts and coconut. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Stir the chopped chocolate into the chilled custard. Using the mixer, whip the cream until it forms soft peaks; fold into the custard. Scrape the mixture into the crust, cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 4 hours or up to 3 days. Cut the mousse cake into slices and drizzle with hot fudge. Makes 8 servings

Angel Food Cake Stuffed with Whipped Cream and Berries

Post  justmecookin on Thu Jul 03, 2008 9:22 am

Angel Food Cake Stuffed with Whipped Cream and Berries

Berries
2 cups fresh raspberries
1 1/2 cups fresh blackberries
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice

Cake
1 cup cake flour (about 4 ounces)
1 cup powdered sugar, divided
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 cup granulated sugar
12 large egg whites
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice

Whipped cream
3/4 cup whipping cream, chilled
1/2 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
3/4 cup powdered sugar

Remaining ingredients
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
Grated orange rind (optional)

To prepare berries, combine first 5 ingredients; toss to combine. Cover and chill 1 hour. Preheat oven to 375°.

To prepare cake, place a rack in the lower third of oven. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Sift together flour, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and ginger in a medium bowl. Sift together remaining 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 3/4 cup granulated sugar in another bowl. Place egg whites in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until foamy. Add cream of tartar and salt; beat until soft peaks form. Add powdered and granulated sugar mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Sift flour mixture over egg white mixture, 1/4 cup at a time; fold in. Fold in 2 tablespoons juice.

Spoon batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan, spreading evenly. Break air pockets by cutting through batter with a knife. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Invert pan; cool completely. Loosen cake from sides of pan using a narrow metal spatula. Invert the cake onto a plate.

Cut 1 inch off top of cake using a serrated knife; set top of cake aside. Hollow out bottom of cake using a small knife, leaving a 1-inch-thick shell; reserve torn cake for another use.

To prepare whipped cream, place cream in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until soft peaks form. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean into bowl; discard pod. Gradually add 3/4 cup powdered sugar, beating at high speed until stiff peaks form.

Spoon all but 1 cup of berry mixture into cake shell; top with whipped cream. Replace top of cake; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons powdered sugar. Serve immediately with additional berry mixture; garnish with orange rind, if desired.

Whipped Cream Basics: For perfect whipped cream, use a bowl that's large enough to allow the cream to double in volume. Refrigerate the bowl and beaters for at least half an hour, or place them in the freezer for 15 minutes, and make sure the cream is very cold. Use the freshest whipping cream available, and add sugar, vanilla, or any other ingredients near the end of whipping; adding them too soon in the process will decrease the amount of volume you achieve. Makes 12 servings (serving size: 1 stuffed cake slice and 4 teaspoons berry mixture)

Chocolate-Espresso Torte with Raspberry Sauce

Post  justmecookin on Thu Jul 03, 2008 9:48 am

Chocolate-Espresso Torte with Raspberry Sauce

About 1 1/2 cups (3/4 lb.) butter or margarine, cut into chunks
3/4 pound bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup espresso
About 1 cup sugar
6 large eggs
5 cups raspberries, rinsed
1 cup marionberries or blackberries
Fresh mint sprigs, rinsed

Butter and flour an 8-inch cheesecake pan. In a 3- to 4-quart pan over low heat, frequently stir chocolate, 1 1/2 cups butter, espresso, and 3/4 cup sugar just until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth, 12 to 15 minutes. In a bowl, beat eggs to blend. Whisk in chocolate mixture until well blended. Pour into cheesecake pan.

Bake torte in a 350° regular or convection oven until center barely jiggles when pan is gently shaken, about 40 minutes. Let cool on a rack for 30 minutes (center of torte will sink), then chill until cold, at least 1 1/2 hours.

Meanwhile, in a food processor or blender, whirl 1 quart raspberries until smooth. Rub purée through a fine strainer into a bowl; discard seeds. Stir 1/4 cup sugar into raspberry puree; taste, and add more sugar if desired.

Spoon raspberry sauce equally onto plates. Run a knife between torte and pan rim; remove rim. Cut torte into wedges. Arrange a wedge on sauce on each plate. Scatter remaining 1 cup raspberries and marionberries over desserts, and garnish with mint sprigs. Serve with scoops of lemon sherbet.

Note: If you don't have an espresso machine, buy prepared espresso from a coffee shop or use strong brewed coffee: Pour 3/4 cup hot (about 195°) water through 1/3 cup ground coffee in a filter cone. If making torte and sauce up to 1 day ahead, chill separately airtight. Makes 12 servings
