Baked Chocolate & Pear Mousse – Mousse alla Pera & Cioccolato al Forno

Music: SheDaisy, God Bless The American Housewife. Look at me I’m beautiful and glamorous in rubber gloves, look how my tiara can be bent back to the shape it was, I can do the laundry and make dinner while I’m on the phone, look at me I’m sexy as the devil when I mow the lawn. This song just popped into our heads as we saw our friends’ four-year-old girl devouring this baked mousse. Chocolate was everywhere, both on her face and clothes, and her mother looked desperate. I’m sure being a mother ain’t an easy job and this song makes it no doubt clearer! Love the song and the whole album “Fortuneteller’s Melody” by SheDaisy. Check out the video here.


2 eggs

2 egg whites

50 gr sugar

50 gr butter

180 gr dark chocolate, chopped

1 pear, finely grated

20 gr rice flour

1 pinch of salt

Beat well the eggs, egg whites and sugar until very pale. In the meantime, melt the chocolate and the butter, and when they are almost completely melted, add the grated pear and mix well. Then turn off the heat and let cool.  When the chocolate mixture has cooled, add it to the eggs and mix. Finally, add the rice flour and the salt. Pour into a well-greased mould and bake at 200° C for about 10 minutes.
