What is chocolate mousse cake?
A chocolate mousse cake from scratch is usually made from egg whites and/or whipping cream with different flavorings. The egg mixture or whipping cream is beaten until light and fluffy. Then it is flavored with chocolate.
How to make eggless chocolate mousse cake?
This eggless chocolate mousse cake is easy to make and takes little time and effort. Here’s the process in brief.
You simply add milk, whipping cream, sugar, cornstarch, a pinch of salt, coffee powder, and sugar to large mixing bowl. (The addition of unsweetened cocoa powder adds an extra flavor and gives this chocolate mousse cake a richer and deeper chocolate flavor.)
Then you stir everything well to combine. Pass it through a sieve and cook this mixture over medium heat until it comes to a soft boil. Add dark chocolate, and keep stirring and cooking until the mixture is thickened. It thickens very quickly after adding chocolate so keep an eye on it.
Keep the pan/pretty glasses/bowls/ or jars ready. Pour this hot mixture. Let it cool completely at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
After refrigeration, take the cake out of the pan by flipping it on a board or cake stand. Dust with cocoa powder. Garnishing with pistachios, and chocolate candies are optional.
Slice this cake using a hot knife for a fine touch. Enjoy!
How long can you keep chocolate mousse cake in the fridge?
This chocolate mousse cake can last for about 3-4 days in the fridge when kept covered.
Some useful tips and tricks for making eggless mousse cake:
- I have used a square pan, but you can use any other shaped pan for making this eggless chocolate mousse cake.
- You can also use mini cheesecake pan for individual servings. This looks so presentable and gorgeous. You can absolutely use a muffin tin for making single serving chocolate mousse cake.
- Always line the pan with parchment paper at the bottom of the pan as well as the sides to ensure the easy release of the mousse cakes. If using the muffin tin, you can also line the muffin tin with liners instead of parchment paper
- I have used 125ml whipping cream for this recipe, but you can also add lesser cream. The idea of adding whipping cream to this mousse cake is that whipping cream actually works perfectly to thicken and stabilize the mousse in the absence of eggs.
- With this recipe, the mousse will set perfectly, so taking it out of the pan would be a cake walk.
- This cake recipe is perfect for those who are not comfortable with eating raw eggs and are always worried about salmonella.
- To make it feel a little less greasy in taste, I did not use any butter. This gives it an intense chocolate flavor and the perfect texture. But if you want it to taste richer, add about 1 tbsp of unsalted butter while boiling. With this approach, this mousse should come out soft, silky, smooth, and utterly delightful!
- I would recommend using the finest dark chocolate for this mousse cake recipe. The best quality chocolate makes the best mousse cake. And you deserve THE BEST!
