Strawberry Chocolate Mousse Cake

  • 1 layer of chocolate cake/brownies.
  • 300g fresh strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons fine sugar
    (may want to add more if you like your cakes real sweet!)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate powder
  • 2 teaspoons un-flavored gelatin
  • 150 mL milk
  • 1.5 cup whipping cream (30%)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  1. Prepare the layer of cake/brownie and place it in your cake mold.
  2. Slice 1/2 of the strawberries in half, arranging them around your mold (touching, side-by-side, pointed ends up, with cut sides against the side of the mold).
  3. Place the remaining half of strawberries in the center. Set aside.
  4. In a bowl, mix the sugar, egg yolk, vanilla, and chocolate powder.
  5. In a small saucepan, add in the gelatin and milk. Heat until gelatin is dissolved.
  6. Pour the milk mixture into the chocolate mixture and mix well. (place the bowl in cold water while mixing. Let it cool and the mixture should be thick).
  7. Whip the cream with 1 tablespoon of sugar until stiff peaks form.
  8. Fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture until blended thoroughly.
  9. When done, pour it into your mold until it covers the strawberries.
  10. Refrigerate until set (4 hours).
  11. Decorate and serve!
