Mouth watering chocolate layer cake with creamy mousse icing and topped with fresh strawberries. Great for a birthday cake or dessert.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 55 minutes
Makes: 12 servings

For the Chocolate Cake
1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
3 cups plain flour
2 1/2 cups caster sugar
3 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
200g butter, melted

For the Mousse Icing
200g dark chocolate, melted and cooled
200g thickened cream
2 tablespoons caster sugar

Preheat the oven to 160C fan-forced. Line 2 x 10cm round cake pans.

In a mixing bowl, sift cocoa powder, flour, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder.
Combine with sugar.
In a large jug, combine eggs, water, buttermilk and melted butter.
Pour in the liquid mixture gradually into the mixing bowl, while beating on low speed for 2 minutes until combined.

Pour the combined mixture evenly between the 2 cake pans and bake for 50-55 minutes until cooked.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Turn the cakes out and allow to cool completely.

To make the chocolate mousse icing, beat cream and caster sugar until soft peaks form.

Add in the melted chocolate and beat for a further 2 minutes.

Using a serrated knife, trim the top of the cakes, then cut each cake evenly into 2 layers.

Spread mousse icing on top of the cake.

Place another layer of cake on top and spread with mousse icing. Repeat with the remaining cake and icing, finishing the top layer with mousse icing.

Decorate with fresh strawberries.
