Inspired by this week’s Great British Bake Off, I cooked up a wee gateaux. I wanted to try some new things. The first of which was a chocolate collar.
I settled on trying genoise sponge but when it wasn’t as big as i expected, I also baked a hot-water chocolate cake which i sliced into two making three equal sponge layers. I made a black-forest-berry mouse for between the bottom two layers and a chocolate ganache for between the top two. Fresh raspberries and blackberries finished it off on top of a flour cream frosting.
A slice of this is not light on the calories but pretty damn delish.
