Ingredients:

For the chocolate cake base:

  • 200 grams of dark chocolate, chopped
  • 150 grams of unsalted butter
  • 150 grams of granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 120 grams of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • A pinch of salt

For the chocolate mousse:

  • 200 grams of milk chocolate, chopped
  • 400 milliliters of heavy cream, divided
  • 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar

For the chocolate ganache:

  • 150 grams of dark chocolate, chopped
  • 150 milliliters of heavy cream

For the decoration (optional):

  • Chocolate curls or shavings
  • Fresh berries

Let's get started!

Step 1: Bake the chocolate cake base.

Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Grease a round cake pan and line the bottom with parchment paper. In a heatproof bowl, melt the dark chocolate and butter together, either using a microwave or a double boiler. Set aside to cool slightly. In a separate bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar and eggs until light and fluffy. Gradually pour in the melted chocolate mixture, whisking continuously. Sift in the flour, baking powder, and salt, and gently fold until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool completely before moving on to the next step.

Step 2: Prepare the chocolate mousse.

Melt the milk chocolate in a heatproof bowl, using the microwave or a double boiler. Let it cool for a few minutes. In a separate bowl, whip 300 milliliters of heavy cream with powdered sugar until soft peaks form. Gently fold the melted chocolate into the whipped cream until well combined. Be careful not to overmix and deflate the mixture. Spread the chocolate mousse evenly over the cooled chocolate cake base. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to set.

Step 3: Create the chocolate ganache.

In a heatproof bowl, melt the dark chocolate for the ganache using the microwave or a double boiler. In a small saucepan, heat the remaining 100 milliliters of heavy cream until just simmering. Pour the hot cream over the melted chocolate and stir until smooth and glossy. Let it cool for a few minutes, then pour the ganache over the chilled chocolate mousse layer. Spread it evenly using a spatula. Return the cake to the refrigerator and allow the ganache to set for at least 1 hour.

Step 4: Decorate and serve.

Once the ganache has set, it's time to add those final touches. You can adorn the cake with chocolate curls or shavings for an elegant look. Fresh berries can also be added to provide a pop of color and a touch of freshness. Get creative and let your imagination run wild! When you're ready, slice into this chocolate masterpiece and enjoy the divine layers of mousse, cake, and ganache.

There you have it—a Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake that will leave you and your guests in awe. This dessert is perfect for special occasions or when you simply crave a little chocolate indulgence. So, gather your ingredients and let's create a chocolate symphony that will make your taste buds sing!
