Chocolate Mousse Cake, My Guilty Pleasure


Chocolate mousse cake. I don’t know why I was so tempted to make this cake after a friend of mine, Yunika, showed it to me on her Facebook. I couldn’t wait for her recipe so I started to look for it on internet. After searched for some recipes then I finally decided to give a try a recipe from BBC Good Food as you can read it here: Chocolate Mousse Cake.

On this recipe that I just made it few hours ago before writing this post, I added one (1) teaspoon of espresso. The reason why I did that because my mom’s friend who is expert in baking taught me long time ago to put a little bit of coffee or espresso whenever I make chocolate cake or any dessert that requires chocolate. She said that it would make the cake or dessert tastes tastier and not too sweet due to the bitterness of the coffee or espresso.

The cake really is my guilty pleasure!

Hint: I forgot to write it before about the tin that I used to make this cake. I used 26 cm cake tin removable base due to the volume of the mixture that was quite lots. Also I used my home made shortbread cake by Delia Smith in this recipe. I am sorry for people who had already read this one before I edited it.

My Tiramisu: “Pick Me Up!”

“Pick me up!” said the tiramisu in my head, LOL. Apparently according to an article in Wikipedia, Tiramisu in Italian means “pick me up” literally yet “make me happy” metaphorically. So I was right then when I picked Tiramisu to make instead of the Red Velvet.

Initially I thought it was difficult to make a home-made tiramisu. But when I checked Delia Online‘s recipe, Tiramisu, then all of my worries were gone. The ingredients and the method are very simple to make apparently! It even didn’t take me long time to make it. It really is simple!

I served five (5) for this Delia’s recipe by using trifle glass bowls.

Does this Tiramisu ‘make me happy’? Yes, it sure does!
