Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake- 2nd blogiversary-First Video Project

 Time flies so fast. Its been two years since I started savory and sweet food. Two years! Time really flies when you are busy baking and cooking and doing what you love. Something that i started off to keep myself busy, has turned out to be much, much more today, it has become my passion now. Another year has rolled around and i truly, deeply thank all of you who took the time to read my posts and recipes.     When i first decided to write a food blog i had no idea what an adventure it was gonna be. I was so nervous when i pressed ‘publish’ for the first time. I didn’t know who would read my words. I used to fret, fret over the number of readers in the beginning days. Used to really get stressed out thinking if i will have any reader at all. But luck was on my side and in the next few months the community began to grow slowly. And now by God’s grace i have so many wonderful readers who support me soo very much, without whom I wouldn’t have had the confidence to keep posting with so much enthusiasm. Thank YOU sooo much guys.       One person whom i cannot thank enough is my dearest husband, Fadal. He has been the biggest support throughout this journey. He has been so patient with me when I keep rambling about food and recipes 24/7, when i keep him waiting to have his lunch, because i will be photographing it, when i keep sending him to the grocery to get stuff for my cooking, and when i spend his money buying endless number of props. Sorry dear and thank you soooooo much. I have to thank my ever loving siblings and friends too for supporting me much.  I published my first post of Rasmalai on 21st of may to be exact. From then to now so much has transformed. This blog has definitely improved my cooking ability, i started exploring the culinary world with more excitement. Ever since this blog i have become a food styling enthusiast and a photography freak. Seriously, over these two years i have started to love photography like never before. Well, what i love more than all this is prop hunting. Ooooh i soo love it. Prop shopping is a stress buster for me, its like i am in a spa or something. πŸ˜€    I want to dedicate this post to all of you- my long time readers and new ones, family and friends. Each like, comment and feedback you guys give me on the posts and after trying out recipes gives me so much joy, it really means a lot. Without you savory and sweet food wouldn’t have been possible. Thanks each and everyone.   Every celebration calls for a sweet treat and what i have for you today is triple chocolate mousse cake. I had bookmarked this recipe and has been wanting to make this for a long time ever since i saw this gorgeous dessert in the gorgeous Lucy’s blog. ThIs is the one and only cake for true chocolate lovers. This has a rich dark chocolate cake layer, then a creamy milk chocolate mousse layer and a white chocolate mousse layer that melts in your mouth and transfers you into a sweet bliss.   

Another announcement is that i have done a video tutorial on this recipe. This is the first time i tried making a video as i wanted to do something special for the anniversary. It was not very easy to cook and shoot at the same time, but somehow managed it. Its not perfect but really hope you guys will like it. Please do let me know, would love to hear your feedback.

  • 100g unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 200g/ 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 5-6 tbsp whole milk
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder

For white chocolate mousse:

  • 90g white chocolate chopped
  • 60ml/ 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 70 ml double cream
  • 2 tbsp very hot water
  • 1/2 tsp gelatine
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

      

NOTES: 

βœ”οΈ Melt gelatine according to package directions. Some brand instructs to mix gelatine in cold water.  

βœ”οΈ It is the easiest to make this using ring moulds. You can make these in small pudding glasses too.  

βœ”οΈ It is little time consuming to make this but you can plan and make this in two days. Split the recipe and make the cake layer on one day and make the mousse layers the next day, then it wont be that long a procedure.  

Method: 

Cake layer:

  1.  Preheat oven to350F. Line a rectangular tin with baking sheet.
  2. Melt Chocolate in the microwave by stirring every 20  seconds till melted.
  3. Using paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar together for several minutes till light and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs one at a time and beat well.
  5. Pour in milk and incorporate.
  6. Combine all dry ingredients and sift them.
  7. Add the dry ingredients to the batter alternating with melted chocolate and mix till combined. The batter will be quite the thick.
  8. Pour this into the prepared tin and level with spatula.
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes until cake is done.
  10. Remove the baking paper and cut the cake in rounds. If you are using a ring mould, then keep the cake in that and keep in freezer. Otherwise  use a papercollar method. For that fold a large square of baking paper (30cm/12inch) in half. Roll it to giv the paper shape, open it and wrap around the cake and secure with tape. Keep in freezer.

Milk chocolate mousse layer:

  1. Sprinkle gelatine over 2 tbsp of very hot water and stir briskly.
  2. Heat milk in a saucepan. Just when it comes to a boil take it off the flame and add the gelatine mix. Whisk to combine.
  3. Pour hot milk over chopped chocolate. Leave for a couple of minutes. Then whisk it till completely melted. Set aside to cool.
  4. Whisk the double cream till you get stiff peaks. Add a scoop of cream to the chocolate and mix well. Pour in the toffee sauce and mix. Fold in the remaining cream to the chocolate.
  5. Pipe the mousse to the paper collar or ring half way up. Return to the freezer.

White chocolate mousse cake layer:

  1. Follow the same procedure as milk chocolate mousse but just add vanilla essence to milk while boiling. 
  2. Pipe white chocolate mousse on top of the milk chocolate mousse and keep in freezer for an hour to set. 

Warm the ring moulds with your hands and carefully push the cake out. If using paper collar remove the collar. Garnish it with melted chocolate, caramel/toffee sauce and chocolate shavings. Transfer to fridge if not eating immediately. It is best when eaten at room temperature.
