A sky-high cake with of six layers of moist chocolate cake, six layers of luxuriously chocolate mousse, and a finale of chocolate ganache.
By Jillian Hatsumi
There is little as delicious as layers upon layers of moist, rich chocolate cake stacked between layers of fluffy chocolate mousse, finished off with a deep, dark, and devilishly sweet blanket of silky dark chocolate ganache.
Don’t let this chocolate beauty intimidate you though. There may be three different components involved–cake, mousse filling, and ganache–but I promise you, it’s totally worth it.
The chocolate mousse filling is unbelievably easy to make for how creamy and wonderfully light it was. Just whip up some heavy cream, add a little sugar and some melted chocolate, and that’s it!
The final piece of the chocolate puzzle is the smooth-as-silk chocolate ganache, which is even EASIER to make. Not only does it contain just two ingredients–heavy cream and semi-sweet chocolate–but I have a super secret process (not really) that requires very little work and very few dishes–one bowl to be exact!
When you combine all three of these heavenly elements of chocoholic bliss into one bite, you have the MOST perfect chocolate cake you will ever eat in your entire life.Print
