Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    This was simple, rich and delicious. It makes four small servings (you only need a couple of spoonfuls)!

    I was in a rush when making this so I maybe added the egg yolks when the chocolate was a bit warm as it became very solid. Though the reviews on bonappetit.com suggest it also seizes when the chocolate is cool. To get it smooth I had to really whisk in the egg whites rather than folding so I lost a lot of the volume (it now served 3 rather than 4). Tasted good but probably not as fluffy as intended.

    Deep chocolate flavor and not as heavy as many mousses because there isn't any cream in the recipe. A great recipe for a last-minute dessert, though I do like to leave it to chill for a while in the fridge if there's time.
