How to Make this Chocolate Mousse Cake
This Chocolate Mousse Cake consists of 2 preparations: The Base and the mousse itself.
For the base, you’ll need butter, almonds, sugar and cocoa powder. Before starting, ground the silvered almonds and then, mix easily with a fork or your hands with the rest of the ingredients of the base. Finally, press into a removable-bottom 26-inches baking pan.
For the mousse, you’ll need bitter-sweet chocolate chunks, cocoa powder, some milk, and heavy cream. As an option, you can add orange liqueur (we say optional, but it is recommended if you want to take your mousse cake to the next level of deliciousness) or, for non-alcoholic option you can add orange or tangerine zest or both.
Making the Mousse
To make the Mousse, mix in cocoa powder and chocolate chunks into a bowl; bring milk to a simmer. Add the hot milk to the chocolate chunks and cocoa mixture and leave to melt. Alternatively, you can do this carefully in the microwave (melting for 10-15 seconds at a time and mixing. Then, repeat the process if necessary) or in a double boiler. Mix well until fully incorporated.
Cover this ganache with plastic wrap (make sure the plastic wrap makes contact with the mixture) and leave it at room temperature or help yourself with the refrigerator, to cool down this before proceeding with the next step. This needs completely cooled down before adding it to the whipped cream.
When your chocolate mixture is ready to use, beat the whipping cream on medium speed until it forms soft peaks, and it is fluffy and airy. At this point, you want to fold in a portion on the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture to make the chocolate mixture lighter; that way it will be easier to mix in the chocolate with the rest of the whipped cream and will avoid that your whipped cream deflates. Finally, mix in the orange liqueur or zest.
Once you have your base and mousse ready, just pour the mousse over the prepared base and refrigerate for a few hours or freeze for 30 minutes to an hour, or until it sets completely.
Now, the only thing left is to enjoy your beautiful and yummy cake.
