Ingredients

How to make it

  • Passion mousse
  • In a saucepan, heat the passion fruit puree, orange juice, and sugar until dissolved.
  • Add the gelatin to the hot juice and stir to melt and combine. Strain the liquid into a bowl and place it over an ice bath. Stir it constantly with a rubber spatula and when it just starts to set, fold in the whipped cream.
  • Chocolate ganache
  • Place the chopped chocolate in a medium sized stainless steel bowl. Set aside. Heat the cream and butter in a medium sized saucepan over medium heat. Bring just to a boil. Immediately pour the boiling cream over the chocolate and allow to stand for 5 minutes. Stir with a whisk until smooth and set aside until thickened
  • Stirring occasionally.
  • Assembly:
  • Place the chocolate fudge layer in a loose bootom springform pan. Fill all of the profiteroles with the passion mousse using a piping bag fitted with a small rounded nozzle. Heat the 1 cup sugar on a medium heat until caramelized and golden in color. Carefully dip profiteroles one by one in the caramel and start arranging them all around the pan. Fill the center with the rest of the passion mousse and dip in 3-4 profiteroles. Chill for 2 hours until set and then fill with the chocolate ganache. End with another 3-4 profiteroles on the top. Chill.

    Hello Ahmed, I am from Sydney, AUSTRALIA Who am I to tell you what to do BUT BEING THAT YOU ASKED The only thing I would do differently is use smaller Profiteroles on top of the cake & I would decorate inbetween them with small crystallised Violets or Roses (flowers) to give a bit of colour & contrast
    TO MAKE FLOWERS: make sure flowers are edible & not poisonous, & free of bugs. Whisk 1 egg white till frothy. on a small plate or bowl pour out some Superfine /Caster Sugar. Dip the flower gently in the egg white then carefully roll the flower petals in the Sugar. Allow to dry on cake rack. OR USE FRESH FLOWERS
    What a great dessert you have made YES I would show it in your store DO you also sell them by? You have put a lot of work into this beautiful dessert I give you 5 forks Congrats Krystyna

    Wow. This is definitely different. I'd try anything you make, though that's a lot of mousse and gananche....usually I like a balence between mousse and cake so it's not too dry and on the other hand, there needs to be enough cake so there isn't all this formless mush in my mouth. Like, I could see taking the profiteroles and dipping them into the mousse center like a fondue. That would be awesome. I wish you well on it, my friend. But if I had a choice on which I'd buy to put candles on, it would have to be your chocolate hazelnut best ever birthday cake!!! This would be more like a "omfg, I just caught my husband in bed with my sister and need to consume the richest thing on the planet" kind of cake. Heh heh, no offense meant, honest. You absopositutely get my 5 forks for originality.

    Hi Ahmed! The idea of using profiteroles to form the "shell" of the cake is a brilliant idea! The cake sounds delicious. It should be a big seller in your store! If not, I'm sure that many of us here on Group Recipes would buy the cake!

    What do I think? I think I would love to be there so I could buy one. Passion fruit is one fruit I will order from Melissa's as it is so special. Your dessert will be at my Christmas dinner.

    Thank you for another 'extreme' recipe, my friend.
