RECIPE HERE: POLISH VERSION | ENGLISH VERSION

INGREDIENTS:

CAKE
-200g dark chocolate (60% cocoa) i used wedel chocolate
-200g butter  (cut in squares) i used lurpak
-1 spoon of instant coffee i used nescafe sensatione creme
-170g of flour
-pinch of salt
-1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
-1/4 teaspoon of soda
-25g cocoa
-400g cane sugar (can be white sugar too)
-3 medium eggs
-75ml of butter milk (but i used natural yoghurt)

CREAM
-200g dark chocolate
-250ml of cream 30%
-2 spoons of cane sugar

DECORATION
-100g dark chocolate

CAKE:
break/cut chocolate and butter into squares, melt coffee in 125ml of cold water

melt all (but don’t heat too much). When ingredients will start melt get off from fire, and mix till they’ll fully melt

like that:

prepare dry ingredients. Sieve flour, baking powder, soda and cocoa in the bowl, add sugar and mix them well

Make egg part: mix eggs (by blender) but not too much – just to mix yolks and whites well. Add buttermilk (yoghurt) and mix

Add chocolate and eggs to the bowl with dry ingredients and mix them GENTLY

Smear 19-21cm form by butter. Pour our cake to the form, and put it to preheated oven (160C) and bake about 1h 25min
baked cake:

Wait till it will fully get cool, and cut it to get 3 flats (i also cutted off the top) Be careful, because cake is moist and delicate :)

PREPARING THE MOUSSE
break the chocolate into squares, put it in bowl. Get small pot and warm up well the cream and 2 spoons of sugar (don’t boil it)
pour it to the bowl with chocolate, and mix until it will melt. Leave it  for  a while till it will get cool and more thick (i put it into fridge)

Smear the mousse between flats and on top

DECORATION

melt 100g chocolate and smear it on the flat surface, wait until it solidify enough, to scrape off it by spatula (or other utensil)
I was too long on the compy, and my chocolate solidified too much, so i used hairdryer a little :D

put the decoration in the cake and ta-dah~
store the cake in closed box (no need to put it in the fridge)
