Instructions
 

To Make the Brownie Layer

  • Preheat the oven to 180 C. Line a cake pan with parchment and spray well with nonstick cooking spray. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder in a small bowl. And set it aside for now.
  • Place the butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir occasionally as the butter melts. Add the sugar and stir it into the melted butter until combined. 
  • Remove the pan from the heat, and let it cool to lukewarm. Once it has cooled, add the eggs, one at a time, whisking well between each addition. Whisk until the mixture become smooth. Continue by whisking in the vanilla. And finally, add the dry ingredients, and stir them in with a spatula.
  • Scrape the brownie batter into the prepared pan, and bake it for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool the brownie layer completely before proceeding with the mousse layers.

Prepare the Dark Chocolate Mousse Layer

  • In a heatproof bowl add the dark chocolate and 120ml whipping cream. Place the bowl over a saucepan with simmering water, over low heat, until all the chocolate is melted
  • Meanwhile, dissolve gelatin in cold water and let it swell for about 5 minutes. Place the gelatin over low heat just until the gelatin dissolves and pour it over the melted chocolate mixture. Let the chocolate mixture cool completely at room temperature.
  • Whip the remaining 160ml chilled whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Add melted chocolate mixture and mix until well combined.
  • Pour the chocolate mousse over the crust and refrigerate for about 15-20 minutes to set slightly, until you prepare the next layer of chocolate mousse.

Prepare the Milk Chocolate Mousse

  • Repeat the same steps for preparing the milk chocolate mousse.

Prepare the Rasberry Mousse

  • Place raspberries, sugar and lemon juice in a small saucepan and place over medium heat, bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and sieve to remove seeds.
  • Meanwhile, dissolve gelatin in cold water and let it swell for about 5 minutes. Add the gelatine over the warm raspberry sauce and stir to dissolve. Let the raspberry mixture cool at room temperature.
  • Whip the chilled whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Add the cooled raspberry mixture and mix until well combined. Pour over the set milk chocolate mousse layer. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Prepare raspberry jelly

  • Place raspberries and sugar in a small saucepan and place over medium heat, bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and sieve to remove seeds. Set aside while you prepare the gelatin.
  • Dissolve gelatin in 1 tbsp cold water and let it swell for about 5 minutes. Add the gelatine over the warm raspberry sauce and stir to dissolve. Let the raspberry mixture cool at room temperature and pour over the raspberry mousse.
  • Refrigerate the cake for at least 4 hours or overnight to set
  • Once the cake is set and ready to be served, run a knife around the edges of the cake to remove the sides of the pan.
