Michel Rostang's Double Chocolate Mousse Cake -- French Fridays with Dorie


Our recipe of the week for French Fridays with Dorie is Michel Rostang's Double Chocolate Mousse Cake. What a decadent pick! A French flourless chocolate cake baked in two parts, giving a layered effect. There were a few different choices on how to finish this cake and I went with the double baked served warm choice.

Egg whites and chocolate ready to be gently whisked together.

First layer of the cake after baking above, and after the baking of the second layer below.

One perfect slice of Double Chocolate Mousse Cake. Can you see the layers? I can't really in the photos but if you really looked at the actual slice of cake you could see a distinct change in texture. If I hadn't known this was baked twice and supposed to have the different layers I probably would have never guessed it did and just thought it was a simple and delicious version of flourless chocolate cake. The kids were really excited about this one, and the end result did not disappoint :)
