Ingredients
  • For Sponge Cake: Maida/All Purpose Flour - 1¼ Cup
  • Cocoa - ¼ Cup
  • Butter - ½ Cup
  • Powdered Sugar - 1¼ Cup
  • Milk - 1¼ Cup
  • Lemon Juice - 1 Tbsp
  • Instant Coffee - ½ Tsp
  • Baking Powder - ¾ Tsp
  • Baking Soda - ½ Tsp
  • Salt - ¼ Tsp {Only if using Unsalted Butter}
  • For Ganache: Cream: 150 Ml {I used Non Dairy Whipping Cream, You can use Low fat cream as well}
  • Chopped Chocolate: 150 gm
  • For Mousse: Cream: 250 Ml
  • Powdered Sugar - ¼ Cup
  • Chopped Chocolate: 125 gm
  • Other: Sugar Syrup: Few Tsps (Just mix equal amounts of Sugar and Water together)
  • Salt: 1½ Cup
Instructions
  1. For Sponge Cake: Take a Idli cooker or any big pressure cooker or any huge pot and add the 1½ cups of salt to it. Spread it well and put in a wire stand followed by a perforated plate.
  2. Cover this, Remove the whistle if using pressure cooker and let it heat up in med flame, till then lets prepare the batter.
  3. Add the lemon juice to the milk. And keep it aside for 5 mins.
  4. In a mixing bowl, add in the butter and beat it well for about an minute.
  5. Now add in the powdered sugar and beat it well until its creamed basically beat till its light, fluffy and creamy.
  6. In another bowl/plate sift in the maida, salt, baking powder, baking soda, salt(if using unsalted butter), cocoa and coffee twice.
  7. Add half of the dry mix and all the buttermilk(Milk and Lemon mix) to the butter-sugar mix. Now mix it really well. Now add rest of the dry mix and mix well and make sure there are no lumps.
  8. Now take any 7" cake tin or a utensil of such diameter and spread some oil in there. Now place a butterpaper(optional) and grease it with oil as well.
  9. Add all the batter to the tin and tap it once.
  10. Now transfer the tin to the hot cooker and quickly close it. Now in med-low flame, let it bake for about 35-40 mins.
  11. Check with a toothpick, Pierce a toothpick in the center of the cake, if it comes out clean its ready. Take it out and let it come down to room temp.
  12. Once the cake comes down to room temp, put it in the refrigerator for about 4-5 hours.
  13. For Ganache: Take the cream and add it to a saucepan. Now let it heat till bubbles appear in sides. Switch off the flame.
  14. Add the chopped chocolate to the cream and let it rest for about an minute. Take a whisk and mix it really well till its smooth and creamy.
  15. Transfer it to a bowl and transfer to a refrigerator for about an hour or two. I kept mine for about 4 hours..
  16. For Mousse: Take the whipping cream and whip it to soft peaks, now add the sugar and beat it to stiff peaks.
  17. In a saucepan, boil some water and place a bowl over it which has the chocolate. Now slowly melt it. Make sure the boiling water is not in contact with the bowl.
  18. Let the chocolate come down to room temp. Now add little bit of whipped cream to it and mix it well, add this to the whipped cream and whip it till everything's well mixed. Keep aside.
  19. For assembling the cake. Take a bowl and keep a plate over it. Our turn table is ready, Now place the chilled cake and using a long knife level the top. Now slice the cake into two layers.. Keep aside.
  20. Take little bit of mousse and spread it in the center of the plate now keep the first layer of cake. Sprinkle some sugar syrup over it.
  21. Now add some mousse to a piping bag and cover the edge of the layer. We're making a dam so that the ganache does not pop out. Now add the ganache and spread it.
  22. Place the second layer and sprinkle sugar syrup. Now add a few dollops of mousse and spread it well on top as well on sides using a long knife turning the table well. Watch the video for reference.
  23. If you feel the ganache is popping out, then spread a thin layer of mousse first on the sides then the top and freeze it for about 30 mins. Now spread it really well.
  24. Decorate as you wish, I used chocolate shards and chocolate shavings. Refrigerate and enjoy πŸ™‚
Notes
For Chocolate Shards, Take a little bit of melted chocolate and spread it on a butter paper. After it sets break big shards. You're done!
For Chocolate shavings: Take a little big of chocolate and peel it using a peeler. Keep it in the fridge for 5 mins and you're done!

      No, you cant! Water will steam the cake.. For baking we need even dry heat.. And the heat is very well spread by the salt. Salt evens the heat and the baking happens very well.. No worries of the salt, it can be reused for any purpose again πŸ™‚

    Hi Yaman, I made this cake yesterday but my butter was not getting mixed with the sugar(powdered). It did not become fluffy at all on the contrary it was a sand like mixture. Even after mixing everything together there was some small lumps of sugar in the batter so instead of baking it Microwaved it for 8 minutes (5+1+2). Still the cake was awesome. Thank you so much.

    Hi,

          Hmm.. The chocolate might be warm, and the cream kind of lost it’s stability due to the warmness. Its advisable to wait until the chocolate cools to room temperature.
