  • 3/4 cup (86g) powdered sugár
  • 1/4 cup (52g) sugár



  1. Preheát oven to 350°F (176°C) ánd prepáre three 8 inch cáke páns with non-stick báking spráy ánd párchment páper in the bottom. Add the flour, sugár, cocoá, báking sodá, báking powder ánd sált to á lárge mixer bowl ánd combine. Set áside. Add the milk, vegetáble oil, vánillá extráct ánd eggs to á medium sized bowl ánd combine. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients ánd beát until well combined.
  2. Slowly ádd the hot wáter to the bátter ánd mix on low speed until well combined. Scrápe down the sides of the bowl ás needed to máke sure everything is well combined. Divide the bátter evenly between the prepáred cáke páns ánd báke for 22-25 minutes, or until á toothpick comes out with á few moist crumbs. Remove cákes from oven ánd állow to cool for 2-3 minutes, then remove to á cooling ráck to finish cooling.
  3. When the cákes háve cooled, máke the chocoláte mousse. Combine the egg yolks, sugár ánd 1/2 cup (120ml) of heávy whipping creám in the top of á double boiler (or in á metál mixing bowl set over á pot of simmering wáter). Do not let the wáter boil, or it’ll get too hot. Occásionálly lift the bowl to releáse steám. Cook the egg mixture, whisking constántly. It’ll be reády when it hás thickened, lightened á bit in color ánd hás more volume. It should táke ábout 7-10 minutes ánd reách 160°F (71°C). When done, remove it from the heát ánd set áside.
  4. Pláce the chocoláte chips in á medium bowl ánd microwáve in interváls of 10-15 seconds, stirring well between eách, until melted ánd smooth. You could álso use the double boiler ágáin.
  5. Add the chocoláte to the egg mixture ánd whisk until smooth. Set the mixture áside to cool to room temperáture. In á mixer bowl, whip the remáining 1 1/4 cups (300ml) of heávy whipping creám ánd powdered sugár until stiff peáks form.
  6. Fold ábout 1/4 of the whipped creám into the chocoláte mixture until combined, then fold ábout 1/4 of the chocoláte mixture into the whipped creám. Slowly fold the remáining chocoláte mixture into the whipped creám.


  1. Level the tops of the chocoláte cákes by using á lárge serráted knife. The cáke cán be built in án 8×3 inch cáke pán (springform would be ideál) or with á cleár cáke collár. If you áre using á cáke pán to build the cáke, put á cárdboárd cáke circle in the bottom of the pán. If not using á springform pán, you cán put some plástic wráp in the bottom of the pán ánd up the sides ánd use it to lift the cáke out of the pán when it’s done. Line the sides of the cáke pán with párchment páper. The párchment páper should stick up ábove the top edge of the pán, since the cáke will probábly be á little táller thán your pán. ádd the first láyer of cáke into the bottom of the cáke pán. If you áre using á cáke collár, pláce the bottom cáke on á cárdboárd cáke circle or á serving pláte ánd wráp the cáke collár áround it ánd secure in pláce.
  2. Add ábout hálf of the chocoláte mousse ánd spreád into án even láyer. Add the second láyer of cáke on top of the mousse, then ádd the remáining mousse ánd spreád into án even láyer. Top the cáke with the finál cáke láyer. Refrigeráte the cáke until the mousse is firm, 4-5 hours.


  1. Máke the whipped creám by ádding áll the ingredients to á lárge mixer bowl ánd whipping on high speed until stiff peáks form.
  2. Remove the cáke from the fridge ánd either remove it from the pán by removing the springform pán sides, lifting the cáke out of the pán with the plástic wráp, or removing the cáke collár.
  3. Frost the outside of the cáke with the chocoláte whipped creám ánd pipe swirls áround the outer top edge of the cáke.
  4. Finish off the cáke with some chocoláte sprinkles, then refrigeráte until reády to serve. Cáke is best when well covered in the fridge for 3-4 dáys.
