Amazing Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake Recipe

IngredientsFor the Cake:

  • 10 oz. high-quality semisweet chocolate (chopped)
  • 4 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup butter (softened at room temperature)

For Chocolate Mousse Layer:

  • 10 oz. high-quality semisweet chocolate(chopped)
  • 1–1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 2 Tablespoons cool water

For White Chocolate Mousse Layer:

  • 7 oz. high-quality white chocolate(chopped)
  • 1–1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1 Tablespoon cool water

InstructionsFor the Cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly grease 9 or 10 inch springform and line the bottom with parchment paper. The cake should be baked in a water bath so the edges don’t dry out (wrap the springform pan in two layers of aluminum foil and place it in larger pan with about 1-1/2 inches of hot water).
  2. Melt 10 oz. high-quality semisweet chocolate on low heat over a double boiler or in the microwave.
  3. Place egg whites in a large bowl with about a third of the sugar and beating on low speed. Gradually increase the speed and beat until the mixture begin to look fluffy, then add the remaining sugar, salt and vanilla. Continue beating until all sugar is dissolved and the meringue looks shiny (nearly soft-peak stage).
  4. Using a whisk stir softened butter into the melted chocolate until it’s combined, then whisk in the egg yolks. Add half of the meringue into the chocolate mixture and whisk gently, then with a spatula fold in the remaining meringue (keep in mind to mix in well the heavier batter at the bottom of the bowl)
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 26-28 minutes (Until the toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean).
  6. When you remove the cake from the oven first let it cool to room temperature and then refrigerate it for 1 hour(cooled cake will sink a little and lose some volume). Take it out the fridge and run a knife around the edge of the pan, unlock the ring from the springform pan, take it off and invert the cake onto a serving plate. Remove the bottom of the pan and parchment paper then place back the ring from the springform around the cake to use it as a mold for the chocolate mousses.
