Hyatt Regency Kauai Resort & Spa 1571 Poipu Road Koloa, Kauai, Hawaii 96756 (808) 742-1234 Fax: (808) 742-1557 Melt chocolate and butter together. Blend in yolk with chocolate. Blend in flour to chocolate mixture. Whip together egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Fold egg whites into chocolate mixture. Scoop into greased metal rings and bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes. Allow to cool, then cut in half (horizontally). Place bottom layer on plate. Spoon about 1 cup whipped cream on top. Place strawberries on whipped cream. Place top layer on and add a small dollop of whipped cream on top. Serve with your choice of fruit sauce. Garnish with mint sprigs and sift powdered sugar over top. COOKING TIP: When whipping egg whites, remember to always use a clean bowl and whip free of any oil or grease. Soft peaks will bend a little when on fingertip. Firm peaks will remain firm on the fingertip. Recipe By : Chef Fenton S. G.
