Chocolate Mousse Torte

5 C. flour

5 C. sugar

1 C. cocoa

5 t. baking soda

Sift these ingredients together.


2 1/4 C. milk to which 5 T. vinegar has been added. (note: this will curdle the milk…so don’t panic)

2 C. oil

5 eggs beaten

2 1/4 C. water

Blend until well mixed about 3-4 minutes.

Grease 2 – 9 inch pans and line pans with parchment rounds cut to fit the bottom. Divide batter between pans. Bake at 350°F. for 30 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.


1 qt. of whipping cream

1/3 C. cocoa

1 C. confectioner’s sugar

1 t. vanilla

(you could also add 2 ounces liqueur, such as Grand Marnier)

Whip until the desired consistency, being careful not to turn it into butter. It should be soft and just able to hold its shape (soft to medium peaks).
