Mousse milk chocolate cake

I love chocolate, but I do not eat much, because believe it or not, I vice, then  if I start, I want to eat more, especially if it is a chocolate bar.

But, in cakes the effect is not the same and I can eat a slice without having the need to eat another one.
 My dearest friend  Sil  from Sao Paulo who always bake these cake for her brthday's husband,
 I have to say beside being an engineer is an wonderful  cook and a dear friend that hold  me from my 20 years.

I miss them, though I saw less than six months.

Besides the cake I made a broccoli and cauliflower gratin, which had much success on my birthday. Super easy.

Just cook steamed vegetables, put them in a baking dish, cover with cream salt, pepper and grated Parmesan

Is a good wildcar as side dish for meat or fish.

I prepare these if I'm not eager to stay hours in the kitchen preparing complicated dishes.

Broccoli & cauliflower gratin 

Now, returning to the cake. The other day, visiting my in-laws, I found a small store who sells only  chocolates Fenix and  gourmet Fenix's ​​Salgado

  Phoenix was the first good brand of chocolate that I found when arrive here and always use in my recipes when I find it,So, now I'm not going to have more problems.

This cake and the gratin to accompany a bondiola with honey and rosemary was that I prepared to last night dinner for a dear couple who came here.

I hope you enjoy and have a very good week.

    Hola Silvia, yo tampoco conocía tu blog. ¡Qué geniales las fotos! Son una maravilla... las recetas también, aunque soy medio vaga para la cocina. Muchas veces me contento más viendo lo que han hecho otros bloggeros-cocineros... como estas maravillas que hay en tu blog!

    Sylvia, querida,

    Gostei de tudo, especialmente do fato de o bolo não ser grande, coisa que nos permite fazer um bolo 'na medida', rsrs. As fotos, como sempre, um primor, rsrs.

    Beijoca e bom fim de semana!
