French Friday’s with Dorie: Michel Rostang’s double chocolate mousse cake

Most of you know how much I love love French cooking, I love Julia, and Jacques, and now the lovely Dorie Greenspan.  My next cookbook may have to be from Pierre Herme’, but let’s enjoy this cookbook first!

This will be my first week with the French Fridays with Dorie community.  AND the first recipe I do with them decides to partially fail on me.  Oh well, I found a way to make it still DELISH.

I will not be able to share the recipe with you, but if you want to enjoy, definitely pick up this amazing book. It is called “Around My French Table” by Dorie Greenspan.  We will be cooking our way through the book, which includes over 300 recipes, YUM-O!!!  You should come over to the site and join in the fun, and you can follow on twitter!

This Friday we all made  Michel Rostang’s double chocolate mousse cake.  One word, WOW!   I still need to invest in some more fun kitchen gadgets, YES it is possible to need more fun toys for the kitchen.  I don’t own a spring form pan yet, so I used a 9 inch pie pan.  My dream pan!

I found a way to get the moist, chocolatey goodness out of my little old pie pan…..OF COURSE it was a little messy….but nobody has to EVER know….

It really was delicious, with a fantastic coffee flavor.

Would you like a slice?

What a great end to TerraFest2011, my best friend Amy and her boyfriend Jared came and visited for a few days!  Jared had a birthday on the 13th, and my birthday was on the 15th…..sooooo I have a feeling this cake may not last long!

What is your favorite birthday cake?

Until next time, Come on in, Have a seat,

Hugs, Terra

    Wow! Your first contribution turned out great! Did you serve your cake cold? What's that gooey yumminess on top? I served mine warm so there was no oozing. Great post, and I look forward to reading future posts from you!
    • Thank you so much!!! I did serve my cake cold. One of the options was to reserve some mousse, and place on cake, and serve cold. It reminded me of having frosting, but of course so much more delicious then frosting! Thank you so much for stopping by:)
  • Your cake looks great. What is that on the top? I so enjoy buying new kitchen stuff. I am now on a quest to find great french earthenware for cooking. Really like the sight and welcome. We have a fun group.. B:)
    • Thank you so much! I reserved some of the mousse for the top, and served my cake cold. Reminded me of having frosting on my cake, and covered up some flaws, LOL! What is French Earthenware? My friend just bought me a French butter dish, I am so excited! Thank you so much, I am really excited to be a part of the group:)
  • Tabitha
    Yeah, what's on the top? Secret addition? Looks so good, inquiring minds wanna know!
    • LOL, it is actually reserved mousse I saved, and placed on top, and served my cake cold. Thank you so much for stopping by:)

    I guess my favorite birthday cake would be Wet Chocolate Cake. Made with oil and coffee. Very thin batter and super moist cake. I tend to like it unfrosted, but it is very good with peanut butter frosting.
