  • E *****
  • Part 2........
  • In a 4 1/2-quart bowl of a heavy-duty electric mixer, using the wire whip
  • attachment, beat the eggs and the salt at medium-high speed until frothy.
  • Add the sugar in a steady stream and beat just until blended. Remove the
  • bowl from the mixer stand and place over a pot of hot water. (The bottom of
  • the bowl must touch the water. ) Cook over medium-high heat, whisking
  • constantly for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the granules of sugar have
  • dissolved and the egg mixture has reached 140 degrees F on an instant-read
  • thermometer. Return the bowl to the mixer stand and beat at medium-high
  • speed until the mixture is thick and pale yellow, about 8 minutes.
  • Place the cold water in a small, heatproof cup. Sprinkle the gelatin over
  • the water and let it stand for 5 minutes to soften the gelatin. Place the
  • cup with the softened gelatin in a saucepan with enough water to come
  • halfway up the side of the cup. Heat the gelatin mixture over hot, not
  • simmering, water. Stir the gelatin frequently for 3 to 4 minutes, or until
  • the gelatin granules dissolve completely and the mixture is clear. Remove
  • the pan from the heat. Whisk the dissolved gelatin mixtureinto the beaten
  • egg mixture. Using a large rubber spatula, fold the cooled white chocolate
  • into the mixture. Fold one-third of the whipped cream into the mixture to
  • lighten it. Fold in the remaining whipped cream.
  • Assemble the veloutes: Fill a pastry bag fitted with a plain l/2-inch round
  • tip with some of the veloute mixture. Pipe a circle of filling into the
  • bottom of each mold, on top of the cake round. Pipe more veloute to fill in
  • the center of the circle so that the entire cake round is covered with a
  • level layer of filling, approximately one-third up the side of the mold. In
  • each mold, place 6 to 7 raspberries in a circle on top of the filling,
  • leaving a l/4-inch border of filling around the edge. Place 1 teaspoon of
  • raspberry jam in the center of each raspberry circle.
  • Pipe more veloute filling into each mold, to fill completely. Using a small
  • metal cake spatula, scrape the top of each mold to make the filling level
  • with the top of the mold. Cover the molds with plastic wrap and refrigerate
  • at least 2 hours or overnight, until set.
  • Make the warm chocolate curls: Warm the 8-ounce chunk of white chocolate by
  • placing it on a piece of waxed paper, then microwave on MEDIUM (50 percent)
  • power for 10 second intervals, until the chocolate starts to soften
  • slightly. The chocolate should soften slightly, not melt.
  • Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Grip the chocolate chunk with a
  • folded paper towel so that your hand does not melt the chocolate. Using a
  • sharp vegetable peeler, scrape one of the edges of the chocolate chunk in a
  • downward motion, forming loose shavings. As you form the curls, let them
  • fall onto the waxed paper. Continue making curls until you have enough to
  • garnish just the tops of the veloutes.
  • Make the crumb garnish: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking
  • sheet with aluminum foil. Break the reserved sponge cake into small pieces
  • and spread in an even layer on the baking sheet. Bake 5to 7 minutes, until
  • the cake is dry and lightly toasted. Allow the cake pieces to cool. Place
  • the cake "toast" in a food processor fitted with the metal chopping blade
  • and process 30 to 45 seconds, or until fine crumbs are formed. Transfer the
  • crumbs to a medium bowl.
  • Make the raspberry sauce: In a medium non-corrosive saucepan, combine the
  • raspberries and sugar. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with
  • a wooden spoon, until the sugar dissolves completely and the berries
  • soften. Remove the pan from the heat. Strain the raspberry mixture through
  • a fine-meshed sieve into a bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and
  • refrigerate the sauce.
  • Unmold and garnish the veloutes: Remove the molds from the refrigerator and
  • gently peel the tape off the seams. Carefully remove the molds from the
  • veloutes . Gently pat the cake crumbs around the sides of each veloute,
  • covering them evenly from the top edge to the bottom. Top the veloutes with
  • the white chocolate curls. webmaster@godiva. c m

Title: White Chocolate Whisper Cake
Categories: Desserts
Yield: 6 Servings

6 oz White chocolate
4 1/2 lg Egg whites (4 full fluid
1 c Milk
1 1/2 ts Vanilla
3 c (300 g) sifted cake flour
1 c + 3 tbsp sugar
1 tb + 1-1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 ts Salt
9 tb Unsalted butter, softened

Preheat oven to 350øF. Grease and flour two 9 inch by 1-1/2 inch cake

In a double boiler melt the chocolate over hot (not simmering) water,
stirring frequently. Remove from the water.

In a medium bowl lightly combine the egg whites, 1/4 cup milk, and vanilla.

In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients and mix on low speed for
30 seconds to blend. Add the butter and remaining 3/4 cup milk. Mix on low
speed until the dry ingredients are moistened. Increase to medium speed
(high speed if using a hand mixer) and beat for 1-1/2 minutes to aerate and
develop the cake's structure. Scrape down the sides. Gradually add the egg
mixture in 3 batches, beating for 20 seconds after each addition to
incorporate the ingredients and strengthen the structure. Scrape down the
sides. Add the melted chocolate and beat to incorporate.

Scrape the batter into the prepared pans and smooth the surface with a
spatula. The pans will be about 1/2 full. Bake 25 to 35 minutes or until a
tester inserted near the center comes out clean and the cake springs back
when pressed lightly in the center. The cakes should start to shrink from
the sides of the pans only after removal from the oven.

Let the cakes cool in the pans on racks for 10 minutes. Loosen the sides
with a small metal spatula and invert onto greased wire racks. To prevent
splitting, reinvert so that the tops are up and cool completely before
wrapping airtight.
