Chocolate muffin or chocolate mousse? Both, please! Since we need to eat a little bit of everything, why should we choose? This dessert perfectly pairs a smooth cake and a light mousse.
The story of this cake begins in a Spanish restaurant in Seattle: Tango. Their specialty is a dessert called El Diablo: “A Bittersweet cube of sinfully rich dark chocolate graced with cayenne, spicy almonds, cocoa nibs and burnt meringue finished with a tequila caramel sauce”. Enough to make me crazy! I loved the mix of cake and mousse textures, and the spicy touch added by the Cayenne pepper is a welcomed surprise. In France, we don’t eat much spice, and even fewer spicy desserts! For this reason, every time I add Cayenne in my chocolate mousse, it’s a big hit!
Here is my recipe inspired by this cult dessert!
Guess what? This is Mickey Mousse favorite dessert!
