Chocolate Maple Cake with Chocolate Mousse

by on October 16, 2012 · 4 comments

I’ve been trying various recipes from Hungry Jack, and this is one of them.

Chocolate Cake

It’s an easy to prepare chocolate cake baked in an 8 inch square metal pan and topped with chocolate mousse made with melted chocolate, a little bit of syrup, and freshly whipped cream.

The cake part of the recipe was pretty good (though a bit salty, because I used salted butter), but the mousse stole the show. It takes only a few minutes to prepare and makes a light and very chocolaty counterpart to the dense cake. If you try the recipe, my advice is to use unsalted butter or cut the salt in half. Also, instead of 8 ounces of milk chocolate, combine about 5 ounces of milk chocolate and 3 ounces of dark.

Here’s the recipe from Hungry Jack.

The contrasting textures of the cake and mousse seem like a perfect match.

Wow, that looks good. I’m in a baking mood. Luckily, the weather is also cooperating, so I can also walk/run.
