Hot Chocolate Fondant with a White Chocolate Sabayon, accompanied by Tahitian Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

 

Chocolate Fondant (Makes 10-12, can be prepared in advance)

 Ingredients:

500g 70% dark chocolate

500g unsalted butter

20 egg yolks

10 egg whites

250g caster sugar

100g plain flour

 Method:

Melt chocolate and butter together over bain-marie, or microwave. Mix the eggs and sugar slowly in a mixer for around 20 minutes until the mix turns white. Add the sifted flour, fold in the melted chocolate and butter mixture and beat together well for a few minutes to knock out any air. This will make the mix more dense. Line your baking moulds with baking paper to desired size. Pour in the mixture and cook in the oven at 200 degrees for 10-12 minutes.When cooked the fondant will have a domed shape, which will sink when it's cooled.  

 

 White Chocolate Sabayon

 Ingredients:

125g White Chocolate

125ml milk

125ml cream

1 teaspoon cornflour

100ml double cream

Method:

Bring the milk and the cream to the boil together. Add diluted cornflour, simmer for one minute then pour the mixture onto the white chocolate. Mix well and chill. When the mix is well chilled, add the double cream and blend with a hand blender until it reached ribbon stage.  

 

To Serve

Place the chocolate fondant on a plate, pour over the sabayon and serve with vanilla bean ice cream and fresh berries.
