Instructions

Make cake batter
1

Before starting, preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8x8-inch metal baking tin with 2 tsp softened butter. Line the base and sides of the tin with parchment paper, pressing down to adhere. (NOTE: Leave a 2-inch overhang on the sides of the tin. This helps to easily remove cake once cooled.) Gather all required baking tools. Combine milk and 6 tbsp butter in a medium pot over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted and milk is warmed through, 2-3 min. Transfer mixture to a large metal bowl. Meanwhile, whisk together flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1/4 tsp salt in a medium bowl. Whisk eggs into bowl with milk mixture until smooth. Add milk mixture to the bowl with dry ingredients, then whisk or beat with an electric mixer until batter is smooth, 1-2 min. Transfer batter to the prepared baking tin. Bake in the middle of the oven until cake is golden-brown around the edges and springs back when lightly touched, 22-28 min.

Make chocolate mousse
2

Meanwhile, add chocolate chips, 1/8 tsp salt and 1/4 cup cream to the same pot. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a spatula, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth, 3-4 min. Remove from heat. Let chocolate mixture cool to room temperature, 10 min. (NOTE: Do not put in the fridge to cool.) Meanwhile, add remaining cream to the same large bowl from milk mixture. Using a whisk or electric mixer, beat cream until stiff peaks form, 2-3 min. Add cooled chocolate mixture to the bowl with whipped cream then, using a spatula, fold chocolate mixture into cream. (TIP: To fold, cut straight down the middle of the bowl with your spatula, then scrape along the bottom of the bowl towards you and up the side of the bowl, scooping up the mixture as you go and folding it over.) Place mousse in the fridge.

Assemble cake
3

When cake is done, transfer baking tin to a wire rack, then place in the fridge to cool completely, 30 min. Once cooled, spread chocolate mousse over top of cake in an even layer. Refrigerate until mousse is firm, 2-3 hr. Meanwhile, heat a small non-stick pan over medium heat. While the pan heats, place a piece of parchment paper on a plate. When the pan is hot, add almonds and remaining sugar. Cook, stirring often, until almonds are light golden-brown and a caramel-like glaze coats almonds, 4-5 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on almonds so they don’t burn!)

Finish and serve
4

Remove the pan from heat and transfer almonds to parchment. Carefully spread into an even layer using the back of a spoon or spatula. Allow almonds to cool to room temperature, 10 min. Before serving, break candied almonds into pieces, then sprinkle over top of finished cake. Cut cake into squares.
