  • Butter and flour a 8" square pan. Pour the batter into pan and bake at 350 oven for 20 minutes. Cool and cut into small pieces. Set aside the chocolate genoise.
  • Mousse: In a food processor, blend chocolate chips with 1/3 cup hot coffee. (Note: the coffee needs to be hot enough to melt the chocolate chips) Add 3 egg yolks, one at a time, then add 1/4 cup brady; blend well.

  • Repeat sequence, ending with the last of the cake and top with the last of the whipping cream.
  • Garnish with chocolate curls or grated chocolate. Chill.
