For the cake:

  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water

For the mousse:

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 8 oz semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the ganache:

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup heavy cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the buttermilk, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the boiling water until the batter is smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared pans.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cakes cool completely.
  6. To make the mousse, melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over simmering water. Let it cool.
  7. In another mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  8. In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks until pale and fluffy.
  9. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves.
  10. Pour the sugar syrup over the egg yolks, and beat on high speed until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla extract.
  11. Fold the melted chocolate into the egg yolk mixture, then fold in the whipped cream until the mousse is smooth.
  12. To assemble the cake, place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread a layer of mousse on top, leaving a small border around the edge. Repeat with the second cake layer and remaining mousse.
  13. To make the ganache, heat the heavy cream in a small saucepan until it simmers. Pour it over the chocolate chips and stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth.
  14. Let the ganache cool slightly, then pour it over the cake. Chill the cake for at least 2 hours before serving.
