    NOOBchef's Note:

    This is the cake I make for birthdays . Its simple , delicious and ... well , my signature :) The cake is pretty forgiving, quite dense and cracks on top - I got the recipe from a cooking course, the icing is also one of my recipes and the mousse can come from a mix.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      [IN THE EVENING BEFORE]

      Grease a 9-inch cake pan and preheat oven to 160/375 degrees Celcius / Farenheit.
    3. 3
      On a low speed, beat butter, essence, sugar, eggs, flour, cocoa and water in a large bowl until they are well mixed.
    4. 4
      Then beat at a higher speed until the colour of the mixture changes and everything is very well mixed.
    5. 5
      Spread into pan.
    6. 6
      Bake for one hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.
    7. 7
      Prepare mousse.
    8. 8
      Leave them both to cool/chill during the night.
    9. 9
      [IN THE MORNING].
    10. 10
      Cut cake in half (carefully !).
    11. 11
      Spread mousse evenly across the bottom half and position top half on top - carefully push it down a bit to 'set' it.
    12. 12
      Make icing - stir yoghurt and vanilla into icing sugar until thick.
    13. 13
      Quickly add and mix in the hot water.
    14. 14
      Immediately spread on cake.
    15. 15
      I suggest decorating it with chocolate letters, chopped almonds or dusted cocoa.
    16. 16
      Also try subbing the chocolate mousse with straciatella mousse.
