  Categories: Desserts
       Yield: 8 servings
  
            CHOCOLATE MOUSSE:
     150 g  Cream
       2    Gelatine leaves softened in
            Water
     300 g  Dark chocolate chopped in
            Small pieces
     500 ml Cream, whipped
            CHOCOLATE SPONGE:
       4    Eggs
     125 g  Sugar
     100 g  Flour
      25 g  Cocoa
            ORANGE CONFIT SAUCE:
     250 g  Sugar
            Few drops of lemon juice
       1 l  Orange juice
            TO SERVE:
            Cocoa for sprinkling
            Chocolate triangles
            Segments of orange
  
   To make the chocolate mousse:  bring the cream to the boil.  Squeeze the
   gelatine leaves to remove excess water and add to the cream with the
   chocolate.  Remove from the heat and stir constantly until the chocolate
   and gelatine have dissolved.  Set aside to cool. When the chocolate cream
   is cool, fold through the whipped cream and set aside. To make the
   chocolate sponge:  beat the eggs with the sugar until pale and thick and
   carefully fold in the sifted flour and cocoa. Line a 20x30cm baking sheet
   with baking paper and spread the mixture onto the paper to a thickness of
   1cm.  Bake in a preheated 200c oven for about 10 mins, then remove and set
   aside to cool. To make the orange confit sauce: melt the sugar in a
   saucepan with the lemon juice and cook until the mixture forms a golden
   caramel. Remove from the heat and carefully pour the orange juice on to the
   caramel and stir to combine.  Remove from the heat, stir through the orange
   zest and set aside to cool. To assemble the torte: spread a 2cm thick layer
   of mousse onto the chocolate sponge, cover and refrigerate until set. To
   serve:  cut the torte into triangular slices, place on a serving plate and
   dust with cocoa.  Spoon around some orange confit sauce, arrange a triangle
   of chocolate on top and serve with segments of orange. Typed for you by
