How to make it

  • For the mocha sponge
  • Preheat the oven to 160°C.
  • Beat the eggs, sugar, gel, water, flour, baking powder and cocoa powder together for about 5-6 minutes.
  • Add the oil and the vanilla essence to the mixture.
  • Pour the batter into a greased 8-inch cake pan. Bake for about 40 minutes or till a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • Remove from pan, and cool to room temperature.
  • For the meringue
  • Whip the sugar, egg white, and coffee powder for about 5-6 minutes.
  • Fill into a piping bag (8 inch wide bag-available in stores).
  • Spoon out the meringue from the piping bag with a spatula on to a greased baking tray and pat down into a ½-inch thick and 8-inch wide circle (like a chapatti).
  • Bake in an open oven at 100° C for 2 hours, until the meringue turns completely dry and crispy.
  • Remove from the pan and cool to room temperature.
  • To assemble
  • Cut the mocha sponge into two layers and place the meringue disc between the layers.
  • Then, layer the chocolate sponge with the chocolate icing covering the top and the sides of the cake completely
  • For the chocolate icing
  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Mix in the coffee essence.
  • Gently beat the cream for five minutes and add it to the above mixture.
  • Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
