Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Mousse Filling & Chocolate Whipped Cream Frosting

I made this Cake for my Son’s B’day . The only demand from my son was it should be an Ultimate Chocolate Cake . I am very happy , cos HE & his Friends loved it .

1st : Chocolate Cake 

a)  1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
     1/2cup Coco Powder
( I used Dark Dutch Process Coco )
     1pinch Salt
     1tsp Baking Powder
     1tsp Baking Soda

Mix everything well  & sift the powder for 2 times .
If there is small lumps break it with your hands .

b)  1cup warm Water
      1tbsp Instant Coffee Powder

Mix the Water & Coffee powder .
Keep it a side .

c)  1 1/2 cup Butter ( room temperature )
     4 Eggs
     1 1/2 cup Sugar
     1tbsp Vanilla Essence

In a big bowl beat the Butter , Egg , Sugar & Essence .
Into that alternatively add the Flour & Coffee .
Pour the batter into a prepared pan & bake in a 350 Degree pre-heated Oven for about 30-35min , or until the cake is cooked through .
Allow the Cake to cool down .
This is a very moist & soft Cake .

2nd : Chocolate Mousse ( Filling ) 

I did my Chocolate Mousse in Food Processor .

2cup  Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/3cup Heavy Whipping Cream
3tbsp Sugar
1/4cup Coffee
1tbsp Vanilla Essence
1cup Heavy Whipping Cream

In a saucepan heat 1/3 cup Heavy Cream & Sugar .
Don’t allow the Cream to boil .
In a Food Processor grind the Chocolate Chip into fine powder .
With Food Processor running pour the  hot Cream .
Allow the Chocolate to melt .
Add the Coffee & Vanilla Essence .
Blend the mixture for few min or until it turns smooth .
Remove it to a bowl & allow it to cool down completely .
Beat 1 cup of Heavy Cream ,until soft peaks form .
Fold the Cream into the Chocolate mixture & Chocolate Mousse is ready .
You can cover the bowl & refrigerate for couple of days .

As it is you can serve this as a Dessert .
