Add the cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to a big bowl. Use a sieve to mix the ingredients together.

Combine the milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract with the dry ingredients. Do this for two minutes at a slow speed.

Add the hot water and stir until the batter is smooth. It’s okay that the batter is going to be thin.
Spread the batter out evenly in the cake pans that have been prepped.

After the oven is hot, bake the cakes for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a knife stuck in the middle comes out clean.

Let the cakes cool for 10 minutes in the pans, then move them to wire racks to cool all the way through.

Put the chocolate chips in a bowl that can handle heat. Warm up 1/2 cup of heavy cream in a small pot over medium-low heat until it just starts to boil.

Put the chocolate chips on top of the hot cream and wait one minute. Mix the ingredients slowly with a whisk until the chocolate is smooth and melted. Wait until it’s cool enough to touch.

Whip the last 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract in a different bowl until stiff peaks form.

Slowly fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture that has already cooled down until there are no more streaks.

To serve, put one piece of the chocolate cake that has cooled on a cake stand or plate. Spread a thick layer of chocolate mousse over the cake layer so that it’s all covered.

Place the second layer of chocolate cake on top of the mousse with care. Use the rest of the chocolate mousse to frost the top and sides of the cake.

Put the cake in the fridge for at least two hours, or until the mousse sets. For an extra touch of class, top the cake with chocolate shavings, fresh berries, or a dollop of whipped cream before you serve it.

Expert Tips

Use good chocolate for both the cake and the mousse for the best results. To make a light and airy mousse, make sure to whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.

If you don’t want the cake to stick to the pans, grease and flour them well or line them with parchment paper.

To keep the mousse from melting, let the cake cool all the way down before putting it together.
You can keep extras in the fridge for up to three days.
