150-Hour Chocolate Cake

185 000 ਦ੍ਰਿਸ਼ 3.8 ਮਿਲੀਅਨ

A good chocolate cake shouldn't need this long, but I enjoy taking my time. This one has a rich chocolate mousse, brown butter espresso, infused honey bourbon, hot chocolate cake soak, and about 5 million bars of chocolate.

    Jokes on you when the cream goes off because you had it open for days hahahha. Serioulsy though why waste a whole bag of coffee beans when you could just... put a little bit of coffee in your cream? Espresso, cold brew, aeropress, moka pot, cafatiere, whatever you jam is, im 100% sure there are more sensible ways to get a subtle coffee flavour in a pint of cream.

This seemed to be one of the most complicated recipes I've ever seen - still want to do it - Something in me keeps on hoping it's all worth!
