Triple Layer Hazelnut Mocha Chocolate Mousse Cake

Triple Layer Hazelnut Mocha Chocolate Mousse Cake

One of the most requested recipes by my family is the triple layer chocolate mousse cake I have posted before on the blog. And seriously, what’s there not to love about this cake. Its every chocolate lover’s dream dessert. Three different layers of chocolate in different forms- a dark chocolate mousse sandwiched between a rich flourless chocolate cake at the bottom, and  white chocolate mousse for the top.

So its not a biggie that every time I have made it, it has been appreciated a lot and thats why whenever I am at my parents, and we have company over that’s the first thing my mom suggests me to make.

Ingredients

  • 6 tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into 6 pieces (plus extra for greasing the pan) (I did not have unsalted butter, so I used salted and just did not add any extra salt)
  • 7 oz./200 gms bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • ¾ tsp. instant espresso powder
  • few drops of hazelnut oil ( I used Lorrain's essential oils)
