Coconut Chocolate Truffle Sheet Cake
A moist chocolate-almond base on a coconut mousse so fluffy and airy, it literally melts in your mouth. And the whole thing topped with an aromatic rum truffle ganache.
Ingredients for the brownie base:
100 g butter
120 g dark chocolate coating
160 g brown sugar
250 g grated almonds
20 g cornstarch
20 g cocoa
5 egg whites (approx. 30 g each)
3 eggs (size L)
Ingredients for the coconut mousse:
800 g canned coconut milk (only the solid part)
250 g powdered sugar
30 g white rum
12 sheets of gelatine
600 g cream
Ingredients for the truffle ganache:
200 g cream
160 g butter
640 g milk chocolate coating
30 g rum
Instruction for the coconut truffle cake base:
Preheat the oven to 175°C top/bottom heat.
Melt the butter with the chocolate coating.
Then add all the ingredients and mix.
Place the dough on a baking tray with a baking frame (the frame is important in this case!) and bake for 30 minutes.
Instruction for the coconut mousse:
Open a can of coconut milk and skim off only the solid part that has settled on top. Do not add the coconut water.
Add the powdered sugar and the rum and mix everything briefly until a creamy, lump-free mass is formed.
Soak the gelatin in cold water for 15 minutes, then squeeze it out and warm it in a saucepan until it dissolves.
Stir in some of the coconut mixture and then add the gelatin mixture to the rest and stir.
Now whip the cream until stiff and fold it into the coconut mixture by hand.
Spread the coconut mousse on the brownie base and smooth it out.
Chill the coconut mousse for at least 6 hours.
Instruction for the truffle ganache for the coconut truffle slices:
Put all ingredients for the truffle ganache in a saucepan and heat over medium heat (not too hot!) until a creamy, viscous cream is formed.
Allow this to cool slightly and then pour onto the coconut mousse.
Allow everything to cool and set for another 20 minutes.
Cut the sheet cake into slices and the coconut truffle slices are ready.
