Chocolate Mousse Cake from the Versailles Restaurant
Updated: Mar 23
I was looking thru my Chef’s Charity for Children cookbook from 1993. I found two dessert recipes that I think you will like. The first one is from the closed restaurant Versailles
4 ounces Unsweetened Chocolate
1/4 cup Strong Coffee
3 sticks Butter
2 cups Sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon Grand Marnier
1/4 cup Flour, sifted
2 cups Heavy Cream
Preheat oven to 350℉.
Lightly butter an 8″ soufflé Mold, place a round piece of wax paper on the bottom , butter also.
Melt chocolate in coffee, cream butter and sugar together until very light. Add eggs one at a time, thoroughly mixing each one. Add the chocolate coffee mixture, flour add Grand Marnier. Beat until well incorporated. Pour into dish, place dish in a pan of hot water and bake one hour and fifteen minutes. Remove and cool to room temperature.
Refrigerate. Decorate with whipped heavy cream. Serve with Raspberry sauce.
