I absolutely love this recipe. The cardamom really adds an extra flair to the mousse - it takes a bit of work but is well worth the effort. This recipe is highly adaptable as well which is great. Sometimes i add a layer of dark or plain chocolate in the middle

How to Make White Chocolate Cardamom Mousse

Step-by-Step

  • 1Take the cardamom seeds from the pods and crush to a powder (using either a pestle and mortar or by crushing with a rolling pin)
  • 2Warm water and milk in a small saucepan. Add bay leaves and powdered cardamom. Bring milk to a boil, then remove from heat and set aside.
  • 3Take broken white chocolate pieces and place in a bowl sitting over a pan of boiling water. Or place on a low heat in the microwave. Once melted, leave to cool for about 5 minutes.
  • 4Strain the spiced milk into the melted chocolate through a sieve and mix.
  • 5Whip the cream until it just thickens to form soft peaks.
  • 6In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until it also forms soft peaks.
  • 7Pour the melted chocolate into the whipped cream and stir gently. Gently fold in the egg whites trying not to knock out too much air.
  • 8Spoon into ramekins and chill in the fridge for about 2-3 hours to set. Serve with grated chocolate on top
