Chocolate Mousse Cake

This cake automatically gives you an appointment to the nearest cardiologist. Just take a quick look: this cake contains: 9 eggs, almost half a kilo of chocolate and heavy whipping cream, not something you`ll eat very often.

But, lets look on the brighter side, shall we? although the cake has enough eggs and chocolate to feed a small village, it has only 120 gr. of butter, and only 70 gr. of sugar, such small amounts probably delete all the calories of the chocolate and the eggs, right??

Now, seriously, you must make this cake at least once. Though my picky brother may not agree with me, I think that this cake is the perfect combination between the baked base and the mousse. The base is basically baked chocolate mousse that is a kind of “melt in your mouth” kind of cake. The mousse is perfectly rich and dreamy, with a slight (slight!) taste of the rum and the amaretto. All in all, this cake simply wroth the calories, and if you are feeling a little bit guilty, eat a small slice, and after couple of  hours, eat another one. I promise you the the guilt will just fade away!

A few bit a pieces to make this cake perfect: first, make sure to use only fresh eggs. This cake contains uncooked eggs, so be very careful with that. Second, after baking the base, it will fall, so be ready for that.

Dark and White Chocolate Mousse Cake

This is the cake that I made for my brother, before he left to his (very) long trip overseas.
Oddly enough, this is the only mousse cake that I made for my brother that came out decent looking! You see, every time I tried to make him a nice cake for any special occasion, something would do wrong (well, kind of…), so I’m happy that it turned out ok this time.

Now, as for the cake- This is not the simplest cake, but it is not hard to make as you may think. Yes, it takes some time, but believe me, it is so worth it, this is THE cake if you want to impress someone, and the taste is really good as well.

So, if you have some kind of special occasion that requires a nice looking (and nice tasting…) cake, give this one a chance.
