Ingredients

Flourless White Chocolate:

  • 4.2 ounces white chocolate chopped
  • 110 grams stick butter room temperature + extra for greasing the pan
  • 3 eggs egg whites and egg yolks separated
  • 2 cups boiled water

For the Whipped Cream:

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar

For the Plum Sauce:

  • 3 large plums halved and pitted
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1 tablespoon cream of tartar

Instructions

  • Fill a small saucepan with water and bring to a boil and let the water simmer, choose a heat safe bowl that would sit nicely over the sauce pan and add the white chocolate to it.
  • The bowl should not come into contact with the water in the saucepan as this can cause over heating. Remove the bowl from the saucepan while there are still a couple of small lumps of unmelted white chocolate, stir until completely melted and smooth. If there are a few lumps that didn't melt just put the bowl back over the saucepan of hot water for a minute or two and stir again. Set chocolate aside to cool to almost room temperature.
  • Preheat oven to 340F.
  • In the bow of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or using a hand mixer) whisk the butter until smooth and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add the cooled down white chocolate to the whipped butter and slowly whisk until just combined, add the egg yolks one at a time, whisking gently on low speed until just combined.
  • Whisk egg whites until white and fluffy, about 2 minutes, and using a spatula fold half of the egg whites into the batter, then the other half.
  • Butter a 9inch pie dish and pour the batter into it, smooth the surface using a spatula.
  • In a deep baking pan, pour 2 cups of hot water and place the pie dish on the pan. Bake for 15 minutes at 340F and without opening the oven reduce temperature to 320F and bake for another 15 minutes. Turn the oven off (do not open the oven) and let it rest in the oven for another 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, transfer dish to a wire rack and let cool completely to room temperature.

For the Whipped Cream:

  • Place a metal mixing bowl and metal whisk into the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Place the sugar into the mixing bowl and add the whipping cream. Whisk just until the cream reaches stiff peaks. Top the white chocolate layer with whipped cream and place in the fridge. In the meantime work on the plum sauce.

For the Plum Sauce:

  • Cut plums lengthwise into slices.
  • Place a medium skillet over medium heat on the stove. When the skillet is hot add the butter, when butter has melted add the plums and sugar, and cook for 5 minutes stirring occasionally. Add the lemon juice and cook for a few more minutes until plums start to get tender. Stir in the cream of tartar and cook for 1-2 more minutes for the sauce to thicken. You don't want the plums to be completely soft and start to fall apart, so stir gentle during this process. Let the sauce cool completely at room temperature.
  • When the plum sauce has cooled down pour it over the whipped cream layer, refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
  • Enjoy!
