This mousse cake is exceedingly rich and very chocolatey. It involves making a rich chocolate mousse - two-thirds is baked and the remaining mousse is spread on top of the cake once cooled.
I made this for a charity bake sale and got rave reviews. I wanted to make a gluten free cake as I know some of my colleagues don't eat gluten. This couldn't have turned out any better. So light and chocolatey. Not sure what part of the recipe the instant coffee was meant to be in, so I ended up leaving it out and it was just fine. I topped it with grated chocolate to give it a more polished look, and turned out great. Do make sure to use very large bowls though as the volume really builds up. - 03 Oct 2013
I left out the coffee but overall I loved it! - 20 Nov 2017
Not sure where the coffee granulates fitted in, so I left them out. Cooked this for a gluten intolerant friend, and it was a huge success. Having our own chickens, this was an excellent way to use up our oversupply of free range eggs. I'll certainly be making it again. As another reviewer states, it is - IMO - best with very high cocoa solids chocolate. - 11 Sep 2017
