    I've been trying to make this chocolate tart/ cake/ dessert thing for some years now but cannot find any recipe even close to it, part of the problem is that I'm not even sure what it's called in English or any other language for that matter. Could anyone please suggest a possible recipe for it?

    (In case any Greek reads this, it's sold in a shop in Alimos, Kalamki called Palet.)

    The topping is some sort of caramel chocolate thing that is a bit solid.

    Beneath it are layers of what seems like extremely soft and thin layers of cake and some kind of extremely soft, smooth but firm cream that's very close to chocolate mouse in texture.

    It's also a moist kind of dessert (even the cakey part isn't dry, it's sort of moist from the cream layers that separate it).

    The key thing about this chocolate thing and what separates it from the other types of similar things I've had is how light/ easy on the stomach it is; it doesn't leave you with a bloated feeling (perhaps this has something to do with the ingredients).

    Needless to say, it's quite sweet.

    Below are some pictures of it.

    The chocolate filling looks like a mounted ganache.  Take melted chocolate and cream together 1 to 1 and whip them in the mixing machine to desired consistency.  Shape or stuff in molds, refrigerate or freeze, and decorate latter.

    I don't know about the topping or dough... Sorry.

    Usually you use a recipe for bisquit or joconde for thin layers of sponge cake, it comes in a chocolate version (where you sub some of the regular flour with cocoa or add a little cocoa),  It might just be layers of sponge and whipped ganache (or even a Swiss or Italian Meringue buttercream with chocolate)......
