  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Butter a 9 inch springform pan, and line bottom with parchment paper.
  2. In the top of a double boiler, heat chocolate and unsalted butter, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool to lukewarm.
  3. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks and 1/4 cup sugar until thick and lemon-colored. Fold into chocolate mixture; set aside. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add 1/8 cup sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the chocolate mixture, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain. Pour 2/3 of mixture into prepared pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until filling is just firm in the center. Allow to cool, then remove from pan and refrigerate 1 hour.
  5. In a medium bowl, whip cream to soft peaks and fold into remaining chocolate mixture. Cover and refrigerate.
  6. Spread remaining mousse over cooled cake and dust with cocoa.

This recipe is not worth the trouble. The cake is dense and bitter.

Amazing!! I left the ring on the springform pan to try to get the top layer of mousse to mold/set - left it in the fridge for 24 hours. It stayed together for a very short time once served but...

I did not care for this recipe. if you try it bake for 20 minutes not 40.

mmmmhh....

Made this for my husband's birthday. Light and fluffy. So tasty and I'm not usually a whip cream fan. Not overly sweet and surprisingly light for a no-flour cake!

This recipe is not worth the trouble. The cake is dense and bitter.

A pretty solid recipe. I did need to substitute coolwhip for the cream due to dairy allergy. The base was a bit dry, and that was only baking it for 28 minutes. Other than that I have no othe...
