If you are a chocolate lover, this is for you 🙂 With three layers of chocolate with different textures, one biscuit, one mousse and one ganache. The trick is to create one layer at a time, so this recipe needs quite a lot of patience and planning. But the results are definitely worth it 🙂

Ingredients: (for 8 persons)

For the base:

  • 125g of almond powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 70g of melted butter
  • 50g of sugar
  • 20g of cacao powder

For the mousse:

  • 100g of chocolate (70% cacao)
  • 15g of vanilla sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 pinch of salt

For the ganache:

  • 200g of chocolate (60% cacao)
  • 200ml whole cream (fresh without additives)

Preparation: 1h30

Refrigeration: 4 hours (mousse) – 4 hours (ganache)

Baking: 170°C – 30 minutes

Directions:

  1. Start with the base:
    1. Preheat your oven to 170°C.
    2. Mix two eggs with almond powder and the melted butter.
    3. Add the sugar and the cacao, mix until combined.
    4. Spread evenly at the bottom of a round tin layered with baking paper and bake for 30 minutes.
    5. Let it cool down before using for the rest of the recipe. Do not remove from the tin.
  2. Prepare the mousse:
    1. Separate the yolks from the whites.
    2. Beat the whites with a pinch of salt until they’re firm.
    3. Melt the chocolate and mix with the sugar. Incorporate the yolks.
    4. Incorporate the chocolate with the egg whites delicately without breaking them using a spatula.
    5. Pour the mixture inside the tin and smooth the surface.
    6. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  3. Prepare the ganache:
    1. In a saucepan, melt slowly the chocolate.
    2. Add the whole cream and mix until combined.
  4. Peel off the baking paper and put the cake on a grill.
  5. Pour the ganache on the mousse and smooth the surface.
  6. Refrigerate at least for 4 hours before serving

Last tip: For extra texture, sprinkle icing sugar and cacao on top right before serving.
