DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350F and prepare two 9-inch cake pans with non-stick spray.
  • Mix together the cake ingredients and beat on low for 30 seconds until combined and then another 2 minutes on medium. Pour cake batter into the prepared 9 inch pans.
  • Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes or until cake is done. Cool cake for 10-20 minutes in pans and then remove from pans and cool thoroughly.
  • In a large mixer bowl, beat the condensed milk and chocolate until well blended.
  • Gradually beat in water then pudding mix until smooth.
  • Chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • Beat again until smooth.
  • Fold in whipped cream (which has been previously stiffly whipped).
  • Chill again for at least 1 hour.
  • Place one cake layer on a serving plate and top with 1 1/2 cups of the mousse mixture (a metal spatula works best for even spreading).
  • Top with remaining cake layer and frost sides and top of cake with remaining mousse.
  • Chill for 30 minutes before serving.
  • Garnish with fresh berries or shaved chocolate ribbons if desired.
  • STORE covered in the refrigerator.
