  • Wet Ingredients:
    • 2 large eggs
    • 150ml whole milk
    • 50ml vegetable oil
    • 200ml whipped cream
    • 40ml lukewarm cream
  • Dry Ingredients:
    • 120g granulated sugar
    • 150g all-purpose flour
    • 30g cocoa powder
    • 5g baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • For the Mousse:
    • 10g gelatin
    • 50ml water (for gelatin)
    • 200g condensed milk
  • For Topping:
    • 50g milk or semi-sweet chocolate, melted
    • 40ml cream, for the chocolate topping


  1. Heat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Blend the eggs, sugar, and salt until the mixture is uniform. Beat in the milk and vegetable oil.
  2. Carefully sift the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder into the wet ingredients, mixing until you have a smooth batter.
  3. Line a round skillet with baking paper or lightly oil. Pour the cake batter in and evenly spread it. Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  4. Allow the cake to cool, then slice it horizontally to create two even layers.
  5. Prepare the gelatin by mixing it with lukewarm water, then melt it in a double boiler or microwave. Stiffly whip the cream with condensed milk, then add the prepared gelatin, and mix gently.
  6. Transfer one biscuit layer to the mold, add the chocolate mousse mixture, and place the second biscuit layer atop. Cool it in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
  7. Craft the topping by melting the chocolate into the lukewarm cream and spreading it over the top of the chilled cake.
  8. Gently unmold and top with the chocolate cream sauce. Refrigerate until the sauce sets.
