  • ¾ cup (90gr) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (120ml) hot water
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso coffee
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup (240ml) milk, at room temperature
  • ½ cup (120ml) Greek yogurt, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
For mousse filling:
  • ½ cup (120ml) hot water
  • 4 tablespoons (30gr) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon instant espresso coffee
  • 1 ½ cup (260gr) bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups (480ml) heavy cream, cold
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/3 cup Nutella
For chocolate ganache:
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon softened butter, optional
Directions:
  1. To make the cake, preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together water and instant espresso coffee. Set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl with paddle attachment, mix together eggs, milk, yogurt and pure vanilla extract until well combined. Add half of the flour mixture for a minute, then add the remaining mixture and mix until just combined. Stir in the espresso water.
  5. Pour the batter into two cake pans. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool on wire racks for 10 minutes. Then remove the cakes from the pan and cool completely.
  6. Meanwhile, let’s prepare the chocolate mousse filling. In a small bowl, dissolve cocoa powder and instant espresso powder in a hot water.
  7. In a double boiler, melt chocolate chips until nice and smooth. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
  8. In a mixing bowl with whisk attachment, whip the heavy cream with the sugar until hard peaks form.
  9. Stir in the cocoa mixture and Nutella into the melted chocolate. Add half of the whipped cream and mix everything together with folding motion. Fold in the remaining whipped cream and mix well until no white streaks remain. Refrigerate until the cake is cooled completely.
  10. To assemble the cake, slice the cakes horizontally into two equal layers, using a long serrated knife. If your cakes got a small hump as pictured, just slice it off.
