Black Tie Cake

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl allow egg whites to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan combine milk and cocoa powder. Heat over medium heat, whisking constantly, until mixture just comes to boiling. Remove from heat. Whisk in unsweetened chocolate until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat an 8-inch springform pan with cooking spray; set aside. In a large bowl stir together flour, 1/2 cup of the sugar, the baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir cooled chocolate mixture into flour mixture until well combined (batter will be thick); set aside.
  3. Beat egg whites with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add the remaining 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Gently fold one-third of the beaten egg whites into the chocolate mixture. Fold in the remaining beaten egg whites just until combined. Spread batter in prepared baking pan.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove side of pan. Cool completely.
  5. Spread White Chocolate Mousse in an even layer over the cooled cake. Drizzle with melted semisweet chocolate; let stand until set. Chill until ready to serve. If desired, arrange Chocolate-Covered Strawberries on cake.
