You’d definitely want to take a bite of this mouth-watering cake when you see it in person, so try it out for the next party, gathering, or holiday you’re hosting.



For the cake

  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 4 egg whites
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup cake flour

Cocoa milk mixture

  • ½ cup hot milk
  • 2 tsp of cocoa powder
  • 1¼ tbsp sugar
  • 2 cups vanilla mousseline cream

For decorating

  • 1 cup dark chocolate (57.9%)
  • ¾ cup whipping cream (38%)
  • Desiccated coconut
  • Matcha
  • Meringue cookies
  • Powdered sugar


Step 1

In a large mixing bowl, add the egg yolks, then beat them together before adding the cocoa powder, and then proceed to whisk them until smooth and combined. In a separate large bowl, beat the egg whites until frothy, then add the sugar, and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. Add the chocolate mixture to the meringue, then fold them together until combined and incorporated, and sift over the cake flour in 2 addition making sure to fold well in between addition. Prepare a deep sheet pan and line it with Silpat or parchment paper, then pour the cake batter, and spread it nice and even. Bake it in a preheated oven for about 14 minutes at 180°C or 356°F temperature, then let it cool down, and trim off the sides to straighten them.

Step 2

Mix together the cocoa powder, sugar, and hot milk until combined, then brush it on the top of the cake, and spread the vanilla cream evenly. Start rolling the cake over, then wrap it with parchment paper tightly, and let it chill in the fridge for 2 hours. In another bowl, add dark chocolate and whipping cream, then microwave it until it boils, and stir it around until melted and incorporated. Put it in the fridge and leave for about 30 minutes, then transfer it to a piping bag, and start piping the decoration onto the cake roll. Mix together the desiccated coconut and matcha, then garnish the cake with it, add the mushroom-shaped meringue cookies as well, and dust the cake with powdered sugar. Serve and enjoy!
