chocolate mousse cake

this chocolate mousse cake is a must for all chocolate lovers

 

 

what you need:

6 eggs

1 1/2 cups or  180 gr.  flour ( sifted)

1 1/2 cups or 180 gr. sugar

1 pinch of salt

3 tablesp. of coco powder

1/4 teasp. nutmeg

1/2 cinnamon

1/2 teasp. baking powder

1/2 vanilla extract

6 tablesp. warm water mixed with 1/2 teasp. instant coffee

grease and flour to dust the pan

 

prep. your pan and heat the oven to 350 fahrenheit or 180 celcius.

separate the eggs. mix the egg yolks with the warm water, sugar, salt, coco powder and all the spices, and beat till it’s creamy. mix the  flour and the baking powder into the mixture. beat the egg whites till they are very stiff and you could flip them over without falling out.

now carfully fold in the egg whites ( in 3 portions) in to the batter. soon as you done, bake it in your pan, for about 30 min. keep checking ( leave the door closed!!!)

let it cool in the pan for about 10 min, take it out of the pan and let it cool completly. for the mousse i then used the recipe from martha stewart  http://www.marthastewart.com/315307/individual-chocolate-mousse, i just added choc. splinters, 1/4 teasp. cinnamon to the recipe. i took a cake ring and put it around my cooled cake, spread the mousse on and let it cool in the fridge for several hours. with a very thin knife i went along the ring to loosen the cake from the ring.

(decoration was made out of molding choc.)

 

good luck 🙂
