CHOCOLATE MOUSSE: 150 g Cream
2 Gelatine leaves softened in
Water 300 g Dark chocolate chopped in
Small pieces 500 ml Cream, whipped
CHOCOLATE SPONGE: 4 Eggs
125 g Sugar
100 g Flour
25 g Cocoa
ORANGE CONFIT SAUCE: 250 g Sugar
Few drops of lemon juice 1 l Orange juice
TO SERVE: Cocoa for sprinkling Chocolate triangles Segments of orange To make the chocolate mousse: bring the cream to the boil. Squeeze the gelatine leaves to remove excess water and add to the cream with the chocolate. Remove from the heat and stir constantly until the chocolate and gelatine have dissolved. Set aside to cool. When the chocolate cream is cool, fold through the whipped cream and set aside. To make the chocolate sponge: beat the eggs with the sugar until pale and thick and carefully fold in the sifted flour and cocoa. Line a 20x30cm baking sheet with baking paper and spread the mixture onto the paper to a thickness of 1cm. Bake in a preheated 200c oven for about 10 mins, then remove and set
aside to cool. To make the orange confit sauce: melt the sugar in a saucepan with the lemon juice and cook until the mixture forms a golden caramel. Remove from the heat and carefully pour the orange juice on to the caramel and stir to combine. Remove from the heat, stir through the orange zest and set aside to cool. To assemble the torte: spread a 2cm thick layer of mousse onto the chocolate sponge, cover and refrigerate until set. To serve: cut the torte into triangular slices, place on a serving plate and dust with cocoa. Spoon around some orange confit sauce, arrange a triangle of chocolate on top and serve with segments of orange. Typed for you by Sherree Johansson.
