Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Butter a 9 inch springform pan, and line bottom with parchment paper.
  2. In the top of a double boiler, heat chocolate and unsalted butter, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool to lukewarm.
  3. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar until thick and lemon-colored. Fold into chocolate mixture; set aside. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the chocolate mixture, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain. Pour 2/3 of mixture into prepared pan. Cover and refrigerate remaining 1/3 of mousse.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to minutes, or until filling is just firm in the center. Allow to cool, then remove from pan and refrigerate 1 hour. Spread remaining mousse over cooled cake and refrigerate overnight.

This is everybody's favorite recipe, but it is very time consuming. . . The cake is so special with strawberries cut in half and placed all the way around the cake with the stem side up, it hides any imperfections as well, and several friends request that I make the cake with sliced almonds on the sides. It is one of the most delicious recipes that I have!

Confused about the coffee granules, but otherwise a great recipe. If you want a richer flavour, try using dark chocolate (preferably 85% cocoa) in place of the semisweet chocolate.
