okay now below is the recipe
Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Stir until melted. Remove bowl from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
Place eggs and sugar in a large bowl and beat with electric beaters for 5 minutes, or until mixture is pale, thick and doubled in volume. Fold in cooled chocolate and cocoa powder until combined.
In a separate bowl, whip cream until thickened (be careful not to over-beat). Use a large metal spoon to carefully fold the cream into the chocolate mixture, trying to keep the mixture as light as possible. Spoon into 6 serving glasses and chill in fridge for at least 1 hour. Remove from fridge 15 minutes before serving, then top with extra whipped cream and grated chocolate to serve.
first of all iv never used a beater on anything before so any tips on how to make sure i whip the cream and stuff correctly? also i dont understand what is meant by "folding" the cream into the chocolate mixture? and "Fold in cooled chocolate and cocoa powder until combined"
here is a picture of the end result:
It appears to be in two layers, the chocolatley stuff on the bottom and a layer of something white on top.
Please be as detailed as possible as i pretty much never ever cook and know absolutely nothing bout cooking
yeah smartass i have i just dont understand what "folding" means.
like is folding some special way of mixing the stuff together?
