When last did you braai a dessert… if ever?

When last did you braai a dessert… if ever?

Why settled for boiled, cooked or baked dessert when you can braai yours? This chocolate mousse is pure heaven!


2 cups dark chocolate chunks

seeds of 1 vanilla pod

1 cup cream, whipped softly

4 egg whites, whisked to a stiff peak

4 bananas

chocolate shavings (optional)



Place the chocolate in a bowl over a bain-marie.

In a Weber, bring oak chips to a smoke over low heat.

Place the bain-marie inside the Weber and cover. The chocolate will smoke and melt in about 30 minutes.

Remove the chocolate from the heat and leave to temper until it reaches room temperature.

Stir in the vanilla seeds.

Gently fold in a quarter of the cream, then fold in the rest of the cream.

Gently fold in the egg whites.

Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Grill the bananas, skins on, over medium heat. The banana is cooked once the skin has gone completely black.

Serve the bananas hot or cold with the chocolate mousse.

If you like, garnish with chocolate shavings.
