Chocolate Mousse Cake

Chocolate Mousse Cake

I posted the photo for this Chocolate Mousse Chocolate Cookie Cake on Instagram last week and people seemed to be really excited for it! (Read: everyone went gaga.) 

And for good reason. This recipe makes 12 servings; I live alone with my boyfriend, and in the 3 days since I created this ultimate food porn recipe, there is one slice left in the fridge, and I am trying really really really hard not to eat because it’s Mr Cookie Monster’s slice.

This cake is made of all the things I love: it’s creamy, chocolatey, rich, decadent and yet so simple to make. Dangerously simple, even. It takes only 4 ingredients and 15 minutes to make, though you need to factor in the time the cake needs to set. It’s worth the wait, though! (And you can lick the chocolate off the saucepan when you’re “washing” the dishes.)

For me, this is the perfect weeknight treat. And weekend indulgence. And fancy dessert for a dinner party. It suits all occasions and delights truly everyone. Pinky promise. If you have friends who think veganism is all about carrot sticks and hummus, serve them this. And then have a good giggle when their jaw drops 🙂

  2. Hi Clémence!
    I tried this recipe on Saturday. It tastes AMAZING!!! Definitely one of the best desserts ever!
    I made for our Easter Lunch with friends. They all loved it. They said it’s like a combination of bounty with Oreos.
    Though mine didn’t come out creamy. 😦 It came out quite hard, literally like chocolate. Even after being a few hours out of the fridge. Do you know why that happened? I didn’t let it cool down completely before I put it in the fridge. Do you think that could have been the problem?
    But this didn’t affected the taste. I love it and I will do it again for sure!
    Thank you so much for the recipe! 🙂

  6. I have made this pie twice now! It is sooo amazing and so easy! Both times I made it to share with my flatmates (the second time it was my flatmates birthday so I stuck candles in it! :)) everyone was completely blown away by how delicious it was! Thank you so much for sharing 🙂 🙂 x


  7. Hi,
    I’ve made this before and it was absolutely amazing, no one knew it was vegan and it was devoured in about 5 minutes.
    I want to make it again for my roommates 21st and unfortunately the recipe and pictures won’t load for it on my browser or my friends browser.
    Is there any way the recipe can be copied and pasted into the comments?
    Completely understand if this is unable to be done
    Thank you so much 🙂 x


  8. Hi Clemence! I have made this recipe before and I loved it so much!!! I would like to do it again, but I didn’t put it into paper. Did you remove it from the post?
    I love your website too. Thank you so much for sharing you recipes!!! 🙂 xxx


    • Hi Joanna,

      Thanks for your lovely comment. Unfortunately the recipe disappeared from my website along with a few others when I switched my blog to 😦 I’m still trying to recover them all, but some are so old that I don’t have the recipe notes anymore.

      Clem x
