This was great! Took ao many steps but well worth it for the perfect chocolate mousse cake which got me lots of compliments...even from my husband!
This was incredible! I would highly recommend it to any chocolate lover!
My family loves this cake especially with homemade whipped cream. Over the last few years I've made many variations with different fruit, and even without fruit. It's simply delicious. Watch out though it might put you in a diabetic coma. ;) My son requested this for his birthday tomorrow. If you've put off trying this recipe, stop, it's one of the best, if not the best cake I've ever made.
I have used a Dark Chocolate Ganache instead of the berries or whipped cream to good effect.
I made this and I found out I had no more Whipped Cream, so i substituted it with Marshmellow fluff and it came out perfect....but there were white spots....w/e, it still tasted good. :D
This is an updated review. My first attempt was literally a flop...I FORGOT the flour...silly. chose to make this cake because my DD makes one that sounds similar, but is tons of work. This is much easier. The hardest part of the whole recipe is finding a larger pan for the baking of the pan within the pan. I ended up finding a pretty large pan to set the cake pan in. On my second attempt (with the flour this time!), I still had to bake the cake quite a bit longer than called for. I think there is one of 2 things. Maybe my outer pan was too large. Larger pan means more water, and maybe it was just too much. Or, DH theory is that because I use a gas oven, I may not have needed the outer pan with water at all. Only more experimenting will let me know for sure.
im making this very soon. i already know how to rate it.. rita.. sweetie.. you are going to make me fat. talk to ya soon babe! muah!
This is terrible, I can't stop eating this fantastic cake. Actually, I don't consider this a cake, it's more a torte. You have to eat it with a spoon and it just melts in your mouth, mmmmmm. My torte did not "cave in", probably cause I used a smaller pan (otherwise I wouldn't have been able to "put a pan in a pan"). Anyway, I had it with just a little lemon syrup sprinkled over the piece. This is soooooo good. A little tip, when cutting the torte, use a warm slightly wet knife, makes it easier to cut. Well worth making and a lot easier than you think.
