Recipe Ingredients: Egg white 1 Castor sugar 4tbsp Flour 2tbsp Cocoa powder 2tbsp Butter 50g Double cream 100ml Chopped strawberries ½ cup Icing sugar 1tbsp Plain chocolate 50g Small cup moulds 6 Recipe Method: Mix the egg white and the castor sugar well. Sift the flour and the cocoa powder together and beat into the egg mix. Melt the butter and add to the egg, sugar mixture. Grease a baking paper and spread it on a tray. Spoon the mixture on the tray to make 6 biscuits. Spread them out in a circle of 5" diameter. Bake in a preheated oven at 200degree for 4-5 minutes. Remove and immediately remove the biscuit with a spatula and shape at the back of the moulds. You may require someone's assistance or bake them one at a time because the biscuits need to be molded immediately while they are still hot. (My daughter loves to help me out over here) Allow the biscuits to set. Meanwhile beat the cream with cardamom powder and the sugar till it stands in soft peaks. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Dip the edges of the cups in the melted chocolate and allow to set. You could put it in the refrigerator for just 2 minutes. Fill the cardamom cream in the cups and serve.
