Ingredients
  

Cake

  • 225 g Valrhona Guanaja 70% Chocolate roughly chopped
  • 80 ml Allpress Espresso Coffee warm
  • 7 Kangaroo Island Eggs separated
  • 1 cup caster sugar

Trifle

  • 350 g Strawberries halved & quartered
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1/4 cup Pedro Ximenez sherry
  • 600 ml Pure Cream
  • 2 tsp Nielsen Massey vanilla bean paste
  • 1 tbsp VALRHONA cocoa powder
  • 200 g Raspberries
  • 140 g Simon Johnson Pecan Brittle

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 170°C. Line the base and sides of a 38 x 26 cm swiss roll tin
  • To macerate the strawberries, toss the strawberries with the sugar and sherry in a bowl and set aside
  • To make the cake, melt the chocolate with the coffee in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring to combine
  • Allow to cool slightly
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks with the sugar until pale and fluffy, then beat in the melted chocolate
  • Gently fold this mixture into the egg whites and pour into the prepared tin
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean
  • Leave the cake to cool
  • Whisk the cream with the vanilla paste just until soft peaks form
  • Refrigerate until ready to use
  • Sift the cocoa powder over the cooled cake, then cover the entire surface of the cake with a piece of baking paper and flip it over onto the bench
  • Remove the tin and the baking paper that was on the base of the cake (and is now on the top)
  • Chop the pecan brittle, reserving 1/3 for garnish
  • To assemble the trifle, layer each ingredient in the dish starting with the cake (cut to fit your dish), the strawberries (and their juices), the raspberries, a sprinkling of pecan brittle and enough cream to cover the fruit by about 1 cm
  • Repeat until all the ingredients are used, finishing with the cream and garnishing with the reserved brittle.
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, and up to overnight, before serving
