It is probably called the devil’s cake because it so sinfully chocolaty! the chocolate devil cake is a chocolate mousse cake with a base of crushed chocolate biscuits mixed with roasted almonds and butter, topped with chocolate mousse and garnished with chocolate truffle. It’s a nice, rich, soft and gooey cake.

Ingredients


For The Base
12 dark chocolate biscuits
2 tbsp roasted and almond (badam) slivers

1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 3/4 cups beaten whipped cream
2 tbsp powder sugar

edible coloured vermicelli

Method
For the base

  1. Open each dark chocolate biscuit and scrape and discard the middle creamy layer.

  2. Strain the chocolate-milk mixture using a sieve. Allow to cool at room temperature.
  3. Add the vanilla essence, beaten whipped cream and sugar and fold gently. Keep aside.

How to proceed

  1. Pour the mousse mixture evenly over the prepared biscuit base and spread it evenly using a palate knife.
  2. Refrigerate for 1 hour or till the mousse sets.
  3. Pour the chocolate truffle on the mousse cake and spread it evenly using a palate knife.
  4. Refrigerate for another 15 minutes.
