  • Ground almonds : 75 g
  • Caster sugar : 75 g
  • Plain flour : 75 g
  • Vanilla pod(s) : 1 whole

  • ETAPE 1

    Preheat the oven to 180'C.

  • ETAPE 2

    Bring 320ml double cream to the boil in a saucepan. Break the chocolate into small pieces if necessary and place in a heatproof bowl.

  • ETAPE 3

    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.

  • ETAPE 4

    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 coffe emulsion: Mix the coffee, double cream and icing sugar together in a bowl.

  • ETAPE 9

    Pour the mixture into a syphon. Screw on the lid tightly and shake the syphon. Charge it with the compressed gas and refrigerate until ready to serve.

  • ETAPE 10

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