Almost-Famous Chocolate Mousse Cake image

LongHorn Steakhouse is known for its cowboy-size portions, but fans of the chain somehow manage to save room for the Chocolate Stampede: a dark cocoa cake covered with two kinds of chocolate mousse, dark chocolate ganache, whipped cream, ice cream and fudge sauce. LongHorn created the dish 10 years ago to remedy a lack of chocolate on the menu, and now the place sells more than a million a year. Execs won't ever sell you the recipe, though - so Food Network Kitchens created one that's just as rich as the real deal.

Time 3h

Yield 12 servings

Number Of Ingredients 16

1 18.25-ounce box devil's food cake mix (plus required ingredients)
14 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
12 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced (1 1/2 sticks)
1/4 cup strong coffee
10 large eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups plus 6 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups cold heavy cream
12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3/4 cup heavy cream
5 tablespoons light corn syrup
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups cold heavy cream
1 tablespoon sugar
1 pint vanilla ice cream


  • Make the cake: Prepare the cake mix as the label directs for a 9-by-13-inch cake. Bake; cool slightly in the pan, then invert onto a rack to cool completely.
  • Clean out the cake pan and line it with plastic wrap. Cut the cake in half lengthwise, then in thirds crosswise to make 6 rectangles. Using a serrated knife, slice each rectangle in half to make two layers. Arrange half of the pieces snugly in the cake pan. Crumble the remaining pieces and press tightly into 6 small balls; arrange 1 cake ball in the center of each cake rectangle in the pan.
  • Make the mousse: Heat the chocolate, butter, coffee and 1/4 cup water in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water (do not let the bowl touch the water), stirring, until melted. Remove the bowl from the pan; stir until cool. Reserve the simmering water. Fill a large bowl with ice water.
  • Whisk the egg yolks, 1 1/2 cups sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a separate large heatproof bowl. Set the bowl over the saucepan of simmering water and whisk until pale yellow, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the chocolate-coffee mixture and the vanilla and whisk until combined, about 2 minutes. Remove the bowl from the pan and set in the bowl of ice water; whisk until slightly cool but not thick, about 4 minutes.
  • Beat the egg whites and salt in a bowl with a mixer until foamy. Add 2 tablespoons sugar and beat until almost stiff; gently fold into the chocolate-yolk mixture to make a dark chocolate mousse. Spread 5 cups over the cake and cake balls. Freeze until firm on top, about 30 minutes.
  • Beat the heavy cream and the remaining 4 tablespoons sugar until soft peaks form; fold into the remaining mousse. Remove the cake from the freezer; spread with the light chocolate mousse, cover with plastic wrap and freeze until firm, at least 6 hours or overnight.
  • Make the chocolate shell: Stir the chocolate, heavy cream and 4 tablespoons corn syrup in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water (do not let the bowl touch the water) until melted. A spoonful at a time, spread half of the shell mixture over the frozen mousse. Return to the freezer.
  • Make the chocolate sauce: Add the remaining 1 tablespoon corn syrup and the butter to the remaining chocolate shell mixture. Microwave 30 seconds, then stir until glossy.
  • To serve the cake, beat the heavy cream with a mixer until foamy. Add the sugar and beat until soft peaks form. Remove the cake from the freezer; invert onto a baking sheet and unmold, then invert again onto a platter, chocolate shell-side up.
  • Cut the cake in half lengthwise using a warm knife, then cut into thirds crosswise to make 6 rectangles; cut each rectangle in half diagonally to make 2 triangles. Top each triangle with whipped cream, ice cream and the prepared chocolate sauce.

Categories     dessert

Time 11h20m

Yield 10 to 12 servings

Number Of Ingredients 8

One 9-ounce package chocolate wafer cookies
1/4 cup sugar
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
One 3.6-ounce box dark chocolate instant pudding mix
6 cups heavy cream
One 3.7-ounce box chocolate instant pudding mix
One 3.9-ounce box white chocolate vanilla bean instant pudding mix
Dark chocolate shavings, for topping


  • Line three 9-inch cake pans with foil, leaving about a 2-inch overhang on all sides. (See Cook's Note.)
  • Add the cookies and sugar to the bowl of a food processor and pulse to fine crumbs. Drizzle in the butter and pulse until the crumbs are completely coated and moistened with the butter. Firmly press the crumb mixture into the bottom of one of the prepared pans; set aside.
  • Add the dark chocolate pudding mix to a large bowl and whisk in 2 cups of the heavy cream. Continue whisking until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. (It's fine if there are still a few granules in the mix; they will dissolve once set.) Pour the pudding mixture on top of the crumb crust and spread until even. Freeze until firm, about 2 hours.
  • Meanwhile, clean out the bowl, add the chocolate pudding mix and whisk in 2 cups heavy cream. Continue whisking until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Pour into another prepared pan and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.
  • Clean out the bowl again, then add the white chocolate pudding mix and whisk in the remaining 2 cups heavy cream. Continue whisking until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Pour into the third prepared pan and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.
  • When all 3 layers are completely frozen, use the foil to lift out the cakes from the pans. Place the dark chocolate layer crumb-side down on a cake stand or large plate. Top with the chocolate layer and then with the white chocolate layer. Refrigerate until the layers are thawed and the cake is set, about 8 hours and up to overnight.
  • Before serving, run a hot knife around the outside of the cake to smooth it and sprinkle the top with the chocolate shavings.

The Ultimate Chocolate Mousse Cake image

Not sure where I got this recipe. Its been in my cookbook for a long time. I made this for my DH and myself for this years Happy Hearts Day..and wow, were our hearts happy when we bit into this cake. This is a flour less dessert which is good because I'm on a low carb diet...however, the fat in this is quite substantial, so don't eat too much at once. I don't eat dairy so substituted non-dairy ingredients, and it turned out so tasty. I also added a dollop of non-dairy whipped cream. Note: I didn't include the cooling times in this recipe.

Time 45m

Yield 12 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 5

1 lb bittersweet chocolate (chopped coarsely)
1/2 lb butter
6 eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup heavy cream
6 ounces semisweet chocolate (finely chopped)


  • For the Cake:.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Wrap the outside of an 8-inch spring form pan with a double layer of tin foil to prevent seepage.
  • Butter the inside of the pan and cut a circle out of parchment paper the size of the bottom of the pan. Place it in and butter it too.
  • Combine the chocolate and butter in a double boiler over simmering water (don't let it touch the bottom of the pot, it will scorch the chocolate). Stir until the chocolate and butter are smooth and lump free. You can also microwave the mixture on 100% or high. Make sure you stop and stir the mixture every 15 seconds; remove the chocolate when all the lumps are gone.
  • Put the eggs in a large mixer bowl over simmering water and stir constantly until warm to the touch, about 3 minutes; remove from the heat. If using an electric mixer, beat the eggs until triple in volume and form soft peaks when the beater is lifted, 5-8 minutes. To ensure maximum volume when using a hand mixer continue to beat the eggs over simmering water until hot to the touch, about 5 minutes, then removed from heat until cool.
  • Fold half the eggs into the melted chocolate until partially incorporated. Add the remaining eggs and fold until just blended but no streaks remain.
  • Pour at once into your prepared spring form pan and smooth the surface with an off-set spatula. Place the spring form pan into a larger pan and carefully pour boiling water into the larger pan until the water is about 2/3 of the way up the side of the spring form pan. Don't get any water on the chocolate! This method of a water bath is often referred to as a "bain marie".
  • Bake the cake for 5 minutes. Then cover the spring form pan loosely with lightly buttered tin foil and bake for 10 more minutes. Remove the cake from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for 45 minutes; then cover it again and refrigerate it for at least 3 hours.
  • To remove the cake from the spring form pan: Run a small spatula around the edge of the spring form until the sides of the cake come loose. Place the cake on a round plate that the cake fits nicely on and invert the plate and open the spring form pan up and remove from the cake. Remove the bottom metal part of the spring form pan and the parchment. Cover it again with tin foil and leave for another 6 hours or over night. It needs to be really chilled to set.
  • If you are making the Ganache, set the cake on a metal rack and put wax paper under the cake (tuck strips). Pour the tepid glaze over the center of the cake and allow the ganache to dribble down the sides of the cake.
  • Using a metal off set spatula run it around the top of the cake to ensure that the g.
  • Ganache won't be too thick on the top. Patch any bare spots at this point. If any air holes occur, use a pin to break them. Remove the strips of wax paper from under the cake and let this stand undisturbed for 2-3 hours at room temperature, or 30 minutes in the fridge.
  • Bon Appetit!

Triple Layer Chocolate Mousse Cake image

Want an extra special dessert for someone special? This is it! It sounds complicated, but the steps can be broken down and prepared over 2 - 3 days, which makes it pretty easy. I got the recipe from one of my cooking magazines, I don't remember which one, but this is my all time favorite chocolate cake. I'm not sure about the prep. time, as I always spread it out over 2 or 3 days.

Bring 1/2 cup of the cream to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Remove from heat; add the softened gelatin and stir until fully dissolved. Pour the cream over the chocolate and whisk until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally. The mixture will thicken slightly.
  • In the bowl a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip the remaining 1 cup cream at medium speed until it begins to thicken, about 30 seconds. Increase the speed to high and whip until soft peaks form, about 30 to 60 seconds. Use a whisk to mix in 1/3 of the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture. Use a rubber spatula to fold the remaining whipped cream into the chocolate mixture until no streaks appear. Spoon the chocolate mousse into the pan over the chocolate cake. Smooth the top with an offset spatula. Return the cake to the refrigerator and chill until set, about 2 hours.
  • Make the ganache:.
  • Heat the cream and butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Remove from heat just before it begins to boil. Place the chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl and pour the hot cream over the chocolate. Stir until chocolate is melted and smooth. Cool to room temperature. Spread the ganache over the top of the mousse layer and refrigerate until set. About 45 minutes.
  • Run a knife along the outer edge of the cake to loosen it from the pan and gently remove from the pan. Serve with whipped cream or fresh berries.
  • Notes.
  • Total time does not reflect the time needed for the mousse and ganache to set. Please allow 3 extra hours for this.

3 Layer Chocolate Cake With Chocolate Mousse Filling (Gluten Fre image

This is a modification to Gluten Free Chocolate Cake ( previously posted. I added a layer to make it big, adjusted ingredients to be more allergy friendly and made a chocolate mousse filling between the layers. The mousse filling doubles as frosting without making it too sweet. I hope you love it.

Time 1h5m

Yield 1 large 3 layer cake, 12-16 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 21

3/4 cup sorghum flour
3/4 cup tapioca flour or 3/4 cup potato flour
3/4 cup rice flour
1 1/2 cups cocoa
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 1/2 teaspoons baking soda (corn free brand)
1 7/8 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 1/4 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 1/8 cups unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon salt (if you use salted butter do not add additional salt)
1 1/8 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
4 1/2 large eggs
3 egg yolks
3 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cup coconut milk (or 1 1/2 cup milk plus 1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice, let set for 5 mins) or 2 1/4 cups buttermilk (or 1 1/2 cup milk plus 1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice, let set for 5 mins)
1 -2 teaspoon butter, for greasing the pan
4 tablespoons unsalted butter (divided and very soft)
3/4-1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (high quality, I used Ghirardelli chocolate. You can also use block chocolate, same measurements)
2 cups heavy whipping cream (very cold, I put in the freezer for about 10-15 mins prior to use)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or 1/2 tsp dark rum with 1/2 tsp vanilla extract)


  • Start by making the Cake:.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease the bottom of (3) 9" round pans. (I used a basic 3 pack of tin foil pans located in the baking section of the grocery store.) Set butter out on counter so it can soften at room temperature, salt for cake and filling. Put a metal bowl in the freezer to chill so it will be ready when you make the mousse.
  • Sift flours together (sorghum flour, tapioca flour, and white rice flour). Add cocoa, xanthan gum, baking soda, cream of tarter and salt. (note: if you are using salted butter do NOT add salt.) (note: if you do NOT have a corn allergy you can replace 4 1/2 teaspoons baking soda and 1 7/8 cream of tarter with 3/4 teaspoon baking soda and 3 3/4 teaspoons baking powder.).
  • In a separate large bowl, beat the butter until creamy (note: the longer you leave it setting out at room temperature the easier this will be). Slowly add the brown sugar and granulated white sugar, whip until fluffy.
  • Add the eggs and egg yolks one at a time to the butter sugar mixture. Then add the vanilla.
  • Turn the mixer to low and alternately add the flour mixture and coconut milk to the butter/egg/sugar mixture. (note: it will be very thick and difficult to mix, just take your time so it gets consistently mixed at each point).
  • Pour (or scoop) equal amounts of the mixture into the prepared pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the cake is springy to the touch and a tooth pick comes out clean. Set on cooling racks to cool. Let the cakes cool completely before attempting to stack. If you would like a smooth edge you can trim the cakes to be the same size prior to adding chocolate mousse layers.
  • While the cake is baking, prepare the mousse filling/frosting (I made a double batch):.
  • Cut the butter into small cubes. In a small microwaveable bowl, combine the chocolate chips and butter. Melt in the microwave for 20-30 seconds at a time until smooth. Be careful not to boil he chocolate as it will change the consistency of the mousse and make a huge mess in the microwave.
  • Add vanilla and 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream to the chocolate/butter mixture until combine.
  • Remove metal bowl from freezer, combine chocolate/butter mixture and remaining heavy whipping cream using a hand mixer. Whip until smooth and firm peaks begin to form. Do not over whip as the mousse will break and have a graining appearance. Cover mousse with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Putting the cake together:.
  • Put a small amount of mousse and spread it in the center of the pan or plate you are making the cake on, this will keep it from moving while you frost it.
  • Place the first layer of cake on top of the mousse, cover the top of the cake with mousse mixture. Repeat by stacking the next layer on top of the mousse. Using a cake knife or smooth spatula, cover the outside of the cake with mousse (the same way you apply frosting to a cake). Using a decorating bag filled with remaining mousse mixture, decorate the edges and top of the cake. If the mousse starts to melt or if your work space is warm, you may need to move mousse back to the refrigerator between layers to prevent it from melting). You can also use shredded coconut, chocolate chips, or chocolate shavings if you prefer for decoration.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve and left overs. I refrigerated mine over night before serving and it was still delicious and moist for 3-4 days after cutting.
