Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake - Heaven!

I cant stay.. sending hb to hospital for his laser surgery in half an hr time.. wish us luck!

Oh bef i go.. if u do hv one dessert that u wud wanna try today or for this weekend.. this is the ONE!! heaven on earth! superb taste.. superb recipe! am in cloud9!

Chocolate cake
Melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30-second intervals. Chocolate burns easily, so stir between every zap. Mine took about 60-90 seconds to melt. Set it aside for the moment.
Beat the butter, sugar, and cocoa powder together on medium high speed until smooth, creamy and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Add the eggs, one at a time, until each one disappears into the mix. Be sure to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl.
Pour in the melted chocolate into ur butter/sugar mixture
Combine the milk and the water and microwave until hot, about 45 seconds.
In a medium bowl, stir together the dry ingredients and add to ur butter/sugar mixture and mix using lowest speed.
Lastly with the machine still running, pour in the hot water/milk mixture.
Pour it into a 18″ x 13″ sheet pan that’s been first sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and lined with parchment.
Bake in your preheated oven of 175C for about 20 minutes
Let it cool to room temperature. (Cake layer can be made a day ahead, if you’d like to break up the labor of this recipe. Wrap the whole thing, sheet pan and all, with plastic very well, and refrigerate.)
Cut a cake circle with each ring mold, regardless of which size you’ve decided to use.
Prepare a tray with patchment paper.. Place ur cake circle into ur cake rings - set aside

Dark Chocolate and White Chocolate Mousse
Bloom ur gelatine by sprinkle ur gelatine powder evenly over a small bowl with the water... within 5 mins ur mixture will thicken
Next heat up the milk to a simmer in a small sauce pan. Stay close so it doesn’t boil all over.
Turn OFF the heat (This is important. When subjected to high heat, gelatin deteriorates and turns grainy) and then scrape the gelatin blob into the hot milk. Swirl the pan around until it’s completely dissolved. It’ll look like there’s nothing more than milk.
Pour milk/gelatin concoction over the finely chopped chocolate… Whisk it up into a smooth pool of goodness. Set it aside and let it cool to lukewarm. Don’t let it reach room temperature or the gelatin may start to set up.
In ur stand mixer.. whisk the cream till soft peak.
Scoop about a third of the whipped cream into the chocolate. Since the chocolate is kind of dense and heavy, this will help lighten it up. When we fold in the rest of the cream, it won’t deflate as much.
Once combined.. add the rest of ur whipped cream.
Pour chocolate mousse into pipping bag and pipe into ur cake ring (i sprinkle my cake with espresso syrup bef piping in my chocolate mousse)
Place ur tray into freezer and prepare white chocolate mousse.
Do the same method for the white chocolate mousse ok.
Lastly once ur white chocolate mousse has set.. pour chocolate glazing.. (make sure ur glazing is cold bef u pour it over ur mousse as to prevent ur mousse fm melting)

Chocolate Glazing/sauce
Heat up ur cream - not to boiling stage ok.. pour warm cream into ur chocolate and let it sit for a minute.. stir and add in ur corn syrup and also ur oil.. lastly add in ur vanilla.

Melt the chocolate in a medium sized bowl by nuking it in a microwave. Start with 30 seconds, stir, then continue with 20 second intervals until it’s completely melted.
Throw in ur cereal.. (I used milo cereal) mix and spread it all out on a parchment-lined sheet pan, keeping it in little flat clusters. This way, the cereal bits touch each other, and can dry in chunks. Pop it in the fridge to set up.

- U can use any of ur fav dark chocolate cake for this recipe.. i found a chocolate cake stashed in my pantry freezer.. took it out and let it sit for a night.. sliced my cake into two and used it as base.
- I used dairy whip cream -38% fat - either Millac or Lescure
- I sprinkled espresso coffee mix with sugar on my cake circle.
- I used Valrhona chocolate and also Marmer white chocolate couverture for my mousse
- I decided not to use my cake ring but instead bought a plastic type of cake ring.. easy to peel hehe
- Keep ur triple chocolate mousse cake in ur freezer all the time.. take it out and place it in ur fridge an hr bef serving..
- Don’t let them sit in the fridge for more than a day. The longer a gelatin-based dessert sits in the fridge, the more rubbery it becomes.

No lah .. i am only trying to motivate ppl to bake so that they too can gain weight hahaha

Ty for ur wish.. after 6hrs in hospital.. hes home with me right now.. on the phone with someone fm Italy .. ish

Rima said...

Pagi pagi harus gv some kind of booster so that ppl can start early.. to bake this memang makan masa sikit cos nak tunggu mousse set bef piping another layer.

Rima said...

ty for the doas.. alhamdullilah.. dah start kerja fm home ni kira dah ok lah tu.. yahooooo boleh gi jln jln hehe

Rima said...

Kenapa lara?? cannnnnn why not take a short hols here.. sure tak lara lagi.

Rima said...

u r referring to ring mould or the plastic ones? yg i pakai ni senang ajer.. dia ade pelekat.. so once ur cake dah mengeras.. u take it out fm freezer and terus tarik pelekat tu.. ahh terbukak lah dia dgn jaya nye

Rima said...

Seri Dewi
U can get it fm any bakery supply shop.. i got mine fm Phoon Huat .. Holland V branch.. plastic dia keras tau.. on one end ade double sided tape.. so kira bef u pakai.. u peel the tape and tampal and u will get a ring mould

Rima said...

ty for ur doas.. yes i hv bake something like this bef but kat tengah tengah ade another layer of chocolate cake.. this time round cake nye cuma act as a base.. try and bake it ok.. sedap banget buk! hehe

Rima said...

Ty Hesti for the doas.. alhamdullilah.. it went well and sepatut nya tak perlu buat laser surgery pada mata kanan dia but today they found out mata kirinye pulak yg ada sedikit problem so the laser surgery was done on his left and not right...

Cuba buat deh.. telan air liur enggal enak hehe

Rima said...

betul tak if rima kata kan.. kadang bila tengok gambar gambar makanan or dessert.. kita wish kita ade magic.. tak payah buat sendiri.. kenyit mata benda dah ade kat depan mata haha.. a woman can only dream hehehe

Rima said...

actually kan first first i thought why not use the cocoa berry instant mousse that i have in my pantry.. i hv like 1kg of chocolate and 1kg of white chocolate mousse powder but kan pikir pikir macam sayang pulak nak bukak plastic nye ahahaha.. i think kan if i use it also can tau.. tinggal add gelatine ajer.. well i will use it lah if i need to prepare it urgently if not.. do it fm scratch lagi shiok and challenging.

U can get it fm phoon huat ok.. i got mine fm holland v branch. it comes in sizes and its rectangular in shape.. u tinggal peel off the tape and tampal to another end.. dah jadi plastic ring hehe

Rima said...

W'salam Ayuuu
Aderrr.. got 5 more in my freezer.. harus bilang siang siang tau.. maklum harus keluar kan dulu dari freezer if not u might ended up eating ice cream cake pulak.. keras hahaha

Rima said...

Ty kak for ur doas.. alhamdullilah everyting is good..

Yep .. makan masa sikit but tak remeh.. harus berjaga jaga waktu u whip the double cream ok.. jng terover whip nanti jadi cair balik

Rima said...

awww ty dear.. do gv it a try and let me know the outcome yah.. good luck and happy baking!

Rima said...

muahaha memang heaven pun but kan if ade fening lalat.. yg heaven pun boleh jadi tak heaven anymore.. adoiiii
