Coffee chocolate mousse

Coffee chocolate mousse ingredients: 200 gm plain chocolate; ½ cup black coffee; 4 eggs; 1 tbsp granulated sugar

Basic sponge cake ingredients: 1 cup flour; 1 cup sugar; 2 eggs; ½ cup butter; ½ cup milk; 2 tsp baking powder; a pinch of salt

Method: Pre-heat the oven at 2000C. Put pieces of chocolate in a bowl suspended over a pan of water. Heat the water till the chocolate melts. Once melted, stir in the coffee and set aside to cool. Separate the yolks and whites of the eggs in two bowls. Add sugar to the egg yolks and whisk until bubbly. Fold the beaten egg yolks into the chocolate mixture. Whisk the egg whites until stiff and fold them into the chocolate mix. For the basic sponge, beat the eggs until very light. Mix salt and sugar and beat the eggs again for 2 min. Heat the milk in a saucepan just short of boiling point. Add vanilla and butter to the scalded milk. In another bowl, add baking powder to the flour. Add milk mixture to the eggs and butter mixture. Gradually stir in the flour. Mix for 30 seconds. Prepare a baking mould, by greasing it with butter and dusting it with flour. Pour batter into the pan and bake for 30 min. Allow to cool. Once the sponge is cool, slice it into 3 thin discs. To prepare the cake, place one disc on a cake stand, pour half of the chocolate mousse on it and spread it out. Now place the second disc and pour the balance mousse. Cover it with the third disc of the sponge. Serve chilled.
