Hazelnut Muffins with Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse Topping


For the muffins

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Beat the egg whites in a mixer with the whisk attachment, until you create a meringue, but don’t make it too stiff.
  • Transfer to a bowl.
  • Without cleaning out the mixer’s bowl, beat the sugar, butter and honey in the mixer until light and fluffy.
  • Remove mixing bowl from stand, add the flour and finely ground hazelnuts and fold with a spatula until completely combined.
  • Add 1/3 of the meringue and mix well with spatula.
  • Add the rest of the meringue in 2 batches, gently folding with the spatula.
  • Do NOT overmix so that you don’t lose the meringue’s volume.
  • Transfer to 10-15 muffin tins that have been lined with cupcake liners.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes, until you insert a toothpick and it comes out dry and clean.
  • When ready, remove from oven and set aside to cool completely.

For the chocolate hazelnut mousse

  • Melt the chocolate in a bain marie or microwave.
  • Let it cool to about body temperature…..37* C (98* F).
  • In the meantime, beat the heavy cream and vanilla in a mixer using the whisk attachment, until it becomes a nice and thick whipped cream.
  • To the melted chocolate, add 1/3 of the whipped cream and vigorously stir with a spatula until completely incorporated. It is important for the chocolate to have cooled so that the whipped cream doesn’t split from the heat.
  • Then add the chocolate-cream mixture to the rest of the whipped cream and gently fold with a spatula.
  • Transfer mixture to a piping bag and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes before piping it over the muffins.
  • When ready, pipe the mousse nicely over the muffins and dust with icing sugar.
