Triple-Chocolate layer cake

This cake is made of three chocolatey layers, each of which is good on its own. It's not hard to make, but takes a lot of time. You need to prepare each layer on its own and let it cool and set before you can start with the next layer.

Layer 1: Kladdkaka

The bottom layer is a heavy chocolate kladdkaka, which will hold up the other, softer layers very well.


  • 100g Butter
  • 210g sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 80g flour
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar


Mix barely and bake in a round cake pan, lined with paper all around, especially on the sides. Bake at 175 °C for 10-15 minutes, until the outer edge has set but the center is still a bit soft. Don't take the cake out of the form, let it cool in there.

Layer 1.1: Chocolate ganache?

I think this cake could be made into a four-layer cake by adding a thin veneer of chocolate ganache between layers 1 and 2. I didn't do it yet, so more research is needed.

Layer 2: Chocolate mousse

This is a standard chocolate mousse, made a bit firmer so that it'll hold the final layer.

Layer 3: White cream

To make a soft top layer, this layer is simply whipped cream with melted white chocolate in it, and some gelatine to make it hold.
