    When the cream comes to the boil, pour the cream onto the chocolate and stir until all of the chocolate has melted and you have a glossy ganache. Allow the ganache to cool slightly for around 5 minutes.

    In another bowl, lightly whisk the remaining 430ml double cream until it just begins to thicken.

  • ETAPE 5

    Fold this cream into the ganache until evenly distributed.

  • ETAPE 6

    Transfer the mixture to a piping bag and pipe the mixture into 6 glasses. refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the mousse to set.

  • ETAPE 7

    Whilst the chocolate cream is setting, make the crumble: Scrape the seeds from the vanilla pod. Rub the butter, sugar, vanilla, ground almonds and flour between your fingertips to make a crumble. Spread on a baking tray and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Allow to cool and break the crumble up with your fingers.

  • ETAPE 8

    For the tiramisu emulsion: Mix the coffee, cognac, double cream and icing sugar together in a bowl and whisk until you get soft peaks.

  • ETAPE 9

    To finish the dessert, remove the glasses from the fridge 5 minutes before serving. Top the mousse with the crumble and finish with the tiramisu emulsion and a dusting of cocoa powder.

Chef's tip

«Vary the flavour of the mousse by adding a liqueur to the cream, amaretto would work very well.»
