1. Chocolate Dalgona

Chocolate Dalgona

Ingredients

  • 60 gm milk chocolate
  • 5 gm instant coffee
  • 5 gm sugar
  • 50 ml milk

Method

  • Heat milk and chocolate in a saucepan over a medium flame
  • Cook the mixture until smooth and creamy, the mixture will slightly thicken as well
  • Once cooked, refrigerate the chocolate drink for 4 to 6 hours until really cold
  • In a bowl, add the coffee, water, and sugar. Whisk it for 10 to 15 minutes until nice and foamy
  • Take the chocolate drink, whisk it once again to ensure the drink is well combined.
  • Pour it into a glass and top the drink with coffee foam. Dust some cocoa powder if you desire.

2. Microwave Chocolate Cake

Microwave chocolate cake

Ingredients

  • 100 gm almond mousse bar (broken into pieces)
  • 100 ml sunflower Oil
  • 175 gm castor sugar
  • 140 gm plain flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • 3 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla essence

For the chocolate ganache

  • 100 gm almond mousse bar (broken into pieces)

Method

  • Grease a 22 cm silicon microwaveable cake pan with a little oil and place a circle of baking parchment in the bottom

  • Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly until you have a lump-free batter. Pour the mixture into the cake pan and gently tap to pop any air bubbles. Cover with cling film
  • Microwave on full power (800 watts) for 7 mins. Remove and check if the cake is cooked by poking a skewer or fork in the middle: if it comes out clean, the cake is ready. Allow the cake to stand for 5 mins, then remove the cling film and turn it out onto a cooling rack
  • For the ganache, melt the chocolate bar on half power (600 watts) for approximately 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Add the cream and mix thoroughly until smooth and glossy
