The chocolate orange mousse cake is a truly sophisticated gourmet fare! this is a perfect dessert of soft chocolate sponge cake sandwiched with a dark chocolate filling and candied orange peels, covered with chocolate truffle. A garnishing of candied orange peel adds to the citrus tinge, balancing the otherwise dominating chocolate flavour quite well.
- Combine the dark chocolate and milk in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute. Remove from the microwave and mix gently till no lumps remain.
- Allow the chocolate to cool to room temperature.
- Add the beaten whipped cream and orange peels and fold gently. Keep aside
- Heat the cream in a non-stick pan and bring to boil.
- Remove from the flame, add the chocolate and mix well till the mixture is smooth.
- Cool to room temperature, while whisking continuously. Keep aside.
- Cool and slice the sponge cake horizontally into 2 equal layers.
- Soak the bottom layer of the sponge cake with ½ the soaking syrup.
- Spread the dark filling evenly on the soaked layer of the cake using a palate knife.
- Place the top layer of the sponge cake over it and soak it with the remaining soaking syrup.
- Spread the chocolate truffle on top and at the sides of the cake using a palate knife. Refrigerate for 1 hour or till the truffle sets.
- Garnish with orange peels by sprinkling on the sides and place the orange wedges in the centre.
- Cut into 6 equal wedges and serve chilled.
- You can also melt the chocolate-milk mixture on a double boiler.
