Not to be confused with a mousey cake, this gorgeous 'Moussey' cake is moist (I went there) and decadent. Use the best chocolate you can find for great results and don't be shy with the whipped cream. It is a little fiddly, but you could use more than one Thermomix bowl if you were that lucky!
It is perfect without the cream, but we do love a bit of cake with our cream, plus it is a lot prettier. Fresh berries or coulis would also be amazing. Think of it as a treat. To yourself. You deserve it! You survived 2020!
