I tried this recipe over the weekend and loved it so thought I would share. Chocolate, coffee and cream are a magical combination as far as I'm concerned and this mousse is decadent and delicious.

Ingredients makes 12
475ml double cream at room temperature
60ml espresso
225g chocolate chips
4 eggs
3 egg yolks
113g granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
60ml Kahlua
Cocoa powder to garnish
Sliced almonds to garnish (optional)

Method
  1. Firstly wrap 12 ramekin dishes with waxed paper ensuring the paper is at least an inch above the rim of the ramekin to create a collar. Use tape to secure the collar.
  2. Place the espresso and cream into a bowl and mix together thoroughly
  3. Place the chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water and melt
  4. Put the eggs, egg yolks and sugar into a blender or food processor and blend for approximately 3 minutes. Then add the espresso and cream mixture, add the vanilla extract and blend for a further two minutes. Lastly add the Kahlua and melted chocolate and blend until the mixture reaches a nice smooth consistency.
  5. Spoon the mixture equally between the dishes and put them in the freezer (ensuring they are kept flat)
  6. Freeze for 3 hours.
  7. When serving the coffee mousse remove the waxed paper collars from around the sides of the ramekin
  8. Dust with a sprinkling of cocoa powder
  9. Top with sliced almonds if desired

In the UK they have double cream:

A bit higher fat than our heavy cream (or whipping cream as the case now is in most grocery stores ... in that there is no difference in fat content between the 2), and also note not ultra pasturized like our heavy cream (just regular pasturized).

Actually, there are a couple of places we can get 40% heavy cream even here in remote northern Indiana.  Organic Valley says theirs is 40% - Trader Joe's claims to have that as well and I think the Chicago dairy, Oberweis has 40% heavy cream - and, it's not ultra pasteurized.  If you're really hankering for that extra butterfat, you can always go with mascarpone - which is 75% butterfat.  It would make a terrific mousse.

Ah yes, I use mascarpone as a substitute for Devonshire cream, works quite well..

It's more of a cheese than a cream, though..  :)

Could you use that, then, as a substitute for the double cream?

I really do not think the mascarpone would whip up light enough for a mousse.  Too much fat.  You would need to cut it with milk, possibly, to get the right whipping start.

I'll see what mousse recipes call for on this side of the pond..
