Layers of chocolate cake are delicious enough. Filling each layer with a rich but light chocolate mousse is a chocolate lover's dream. This torte recipe is perfect, no matter the occasion.
Heat oven to 350°F. Line 15-1/2x10-1/2x1-inch jelly-roll pan with foil; grease and flour foil.
Beat butter and sugar in large bowl until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda; gradually add to butter mixture, alternately with milk, beating until well blended. Spread batter in prepared pan.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Invert onto wire rack; carefully peel off foil. Cool completely.
Prepare Chocolate Mousse Filling. Trim edges from cake; cut cake crosswise into 4 equal pieces, each about 9x3-1/2 inches. Place one layer on serving plate; spread with about 1/2 cup filling. Repeat with 2 more layers; pipe or spread fourth layer with remaining filling. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Cover; refrigerate leftover torte.
