  • 250 ml whipping cream
  • juice of 1/2 lemon

Instructions

  • To make the white chocolate mousse, combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Allow to cook for 5 minutes until the mixture is syrupy.
  • While the syrup is boiling, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  • Pour the hot syrup into the egg whites in a thin, steady stream whilst continuously whisking until the mixture is thick and glossy.
  • Pour in the white chocolate and whisk well then fold in the whipped cream.
  • Transfer the mousse to a piping bag fitted with your desired nozzle and place in the fridge to chill.
  • To make the base, combine the cookie crumbs with the melted butter and press into the base of a +- 20cm loose-bottomed cake pan.
  • Place in the fridge to chill for 20 minutes.
  • To make the filling, whisk the cream until thick then whip in the caramel and lemon juice.
  • When the base has set, slice the bananas and place them into the prepared base. Pour over the filling and place in the fridge to set for 1 hour.
  • When 1 hour has passed, pipe the chocolate mousse onto the pie and place back in the fridge to set for at least 4 hours but preferably over night.
  • When you are ready to serve, grate over a little dark chocolate and slice.
