Let’s begin

  1. The first thing that we are going to do is heat the microwave to 350 degrees F. Then, grease the bottom and all the sides of two cake pans; lightly flour.
  2. The next step is to take a bowl, mix cake flour, unsweetened baking cocoa, baking soda, and salt in it.
  3. Take another bowl, whisk sugar, and butter (margarine) with a mixer until it gets fleecy.
  4. Add eggs in the bowl and beat well. Make sure to add one egg at a time. Mix in one tbsp coffee-flavored liqueur and vanilla. Add flour mixture and sour cream into sugar mixture and beat them at low speed.
  5. Mix hot water in it and blend it again. Transfer the whole mixture into the pans.
  6. Now, put it inside the microwave for a maximum of 35 minutes. Cool it for a maximum of 10 minutes; remove it from the pans.
  7. Add semisweet chocolate chips in a food processor, and process it accordingly. Take a pan, heat 1/3 of the whipping cream and the sugar over medium flame, mix it gently.
  8. In the food processor, transfer the whole whipping cream through the feed tube; process it for a maximum of 20 seconds. Add liqueur, oil, and vanilla in it and process it again for more than 20 seconds.
  9. Transfer it into a large bowl; cool it for 5 minutes. Take a chilled bowl, beat the remaining cream with a mixer. Gently mix the cream into the chocolate mixture and put it inside the refrigerator for a maximum of 30 minutes.
  10. Let’s move further, take one more chilled bowl, whisk all the frosting ingredients on high speed until stiff.
  11. Cut the cake horizontally to divide it into two layers. Put a single layer of cake on a plate and spread the chocolate mousse on it. Duplicate the process again and again with the rest of the slices.
  12. And the final step is to do frosting on the cake.

Garnish it with chocolate leaves or curls if desired. Cover it and refrigerate it for at least two hours and serve it. Enjoy this delightful cake with your family.
