My Favourite Chocolate Cake
POSTED BY ADMIN ON 21ST JANUARY 2010 IN COOKING
Today is my birthday and then I always make ‚Äòmy‚Äô chocolate birthday cake. It is fun to make but even more fun to eat it. It has been a secret recipe for years, but since I am turning 20 today (and because nearly all women love chocolate), I am willing to share my secret with you all ;)
- 6 leafs gelatine
- 6 decilitre whipping cream
- 230 grams sugar
- 150 grams white chocolate
- 1,4 decilitre water
- 60 grams powdered cocoa
- A cake
To Make the Mousse
Leave 3 leafs of gelatine to soak in cold water for at least 10 minutes. Whisk 3,5 decilitre whipping cream with 50 grams of sugar. Chop the 150 grams of white chocolate finely. Heat 1,5 decilitre of whipping cream in a pan and make the chopped white chocolate melt in it. Take the pan of the heat and put the gelatine in it (after having it squeezed out). Then carefully mix it with the whipped cream.
To Make the Bottom and Filling
Cut the cake into slices and cover the bottom of the cake tin. Fill the cake tin with the mousse and put it in the freezer (for about a night), so it gets frozen.
To Make the Frosting
Leave 3 leafs of gelatine to soak in cold water for at least 10 minutes. Bring 1 decilitre whipping cream, 1,4 decilitre water, 180 grams of sugar, and 60 grams of cocoa powder to the boil in a pan. Boil this down to half its volume in about 2 minutes. Take the pan of the heat, put the gelatine in it (after having it squeezed out), and mix it together. Take the cake out of the freezer and remove the cake tin. Then pour the frosting (after it has cooled down a little) over the cake and thaw out the chocolate cake. Yum-yum!
