Floating Graham Cracker Buttermilk Crusted Mousse au Chocolat Pie

Thank you all for your suggestions last week! I put together my favourite ones and came up with my own little pie. I read  a lot of chocolate suggestions, so decided to make a mousse topping, then some cheesecakes here and there, so i incorporated the graham cracker crust, then other recipes you mentioned buttermilk, etc… basically i made a mix match of all of your wonderful suggestions and invented this purely overloaded pie that we devoured in mere minutes.

Click more for the video instructions!!

Crust: 15 graham crackers + others to form about 1 c. 1/2 of crumbs, pulse with 6tbs of melted cooled butter and a pinch of salt. Press down in a pie mold and bake until firm for 12-15mins in 200c. (dont let it get too dark).

Custard Crust: 3 eggs, 3tbsp flour, 1c. sugar, mix well, then mix in, while alternating, 1 3/4 c. buttermilk and 1/2 c. melted butter. Poor into cooled crust and bake at 210 c. for 15mins, then at 160c for 30-40 mins until set. Cool once cooked.

Mousse: Melt down 100g of dark chocolate with 100g of butter on a double boiler. cool to warm.

Beat 8 egg yolks and mix in melted chocolate quickly with 4tbs of rum.

Beat 8 egg whiles with 8tbs of white sugar until soft glossy peaks are formed. Fold into the cool chocolate mixture.

Poor the whole thing over the cold crust and set overnight in the fridge.

      That looks awesome, your blog is one of my favourites to read :)

      Off topic, I will be going to the Philippines to visit from Australia January next year. What places would you suggest for healthy eating options? I try to eat organic/free range meats, no fried foods and no added sugar (rare to find in the Philippines right?). Any suggestions would be great. Thanks Erwan!

      1. Erwan September 11, 2012 at 8:01 am

        very rare haha, eat at home. Just like anywhere else in the world, organic restaurants are hard to come by

      What do you call that thing that crushes the graham crackers and biscuits you put in? I’m not quite sure if that’s the normal blender used for shakes or is it a different kind? I’m still new to this cooking stuff and I really want to try this out.

      looks really good.. i noticed you simply just whisked the eggwhites without cream of tartar.. just want to clarify if you added any cream of tartar or any form of acid to the eggwhite prior whipping them to easily form those soft peaks. im now a fan of this blog.. :)

        I had issues with my oven and i had already bought all the ingredients and everything to find out my oven didnt wanna work, so I found that we had a turbo(we use it for turkey when thanksgiving comes around) lol I just have a lump in the middle that you can scrape off. It should turn out the same, I find out how it turns out tomorrow.

about THE FAT KID

I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
