My Spectacular Chocolate Cake

For the crust:
5 eggs
1 tea cup of sugar
1 vanilla
1 tea cup of flour
3-4 tsp cocoa 
1 tsp baking powder, 
1 tablespoon instant coffee dissolved in 2-3 tablespoons of water 
For the cream: 
500 g mascarpone
100 ml liquid whipping cream
powdered sugar according to your own preference but if using sweetened cream you will not need that 
For the ganache: 
150 ml cream 
150 g chocolate 
1 tablespoon butter 
strawberries and other fruits for decoration (cherries, raspberries, etc.)

The products are mixed in the sequence in which they are listed but the flour, the cocoa and the baking powder are mixed in advance. 
Divide the dough into two for the two marshes. 
Allow to cool. 
If you can then make them moist. I did and it was very dry. Mix and beat the products for the cream with a mixer for several minutes. The liquid cream is warmed up on water bath, then you add the chocolate and butter. Remove from heat and stir until the chocolate melts completely. Assemble the cake parts and top with chocolate ganache and decorate with strawberries and other fruits.
Enjoy your meal :)
