White Chocolate Mousse Cake

White Chocolate Mousse Cake ~ The BEST mousse cake EVER ! With a chewy Cake base, creamy Mousse and a taste which will blow you away ~ this is also a make-ahead recipe and yields 12 - 16 slices

I have the best White Chocolate Mousse Cake recipe for you today ! Seriously, this is the most divine dessert I have made this year. Then again I AM a white chocolate lover and any chocolate mousse has always been a favorite.

Extremely creamy with the most incredible taste - it is almost as if you eat a white chocolate bar, just creamier and way more delicious.

The sliced piece is huge, I mean really, really huge and I only used the slice for the photo, because this white chocolate mousse cake is so rich, even I would not have been able to finish the slice at once.  Not saying anything about going back 30 minutes later for another slice though ;-)

The base, or cake crust if you will, is the only bit which needs baking and that only takes 20 minutes in the oven - the rest is melt, beat, mix and chill. Easy, right?

I think this is a beautiful dessert which would look awesome on your dessert table at Christmas or any other family gatherings you have on this month. I sprinkled Candy Cane over and then lightly dusted with some silver and blue edible glitter as well, to give it more of a Festive look.

The chocolate cake base is a very plain recipe, but once the Mousse is spooned over and the Cake is chilled, the base turns into a delicious chewy bit, not gooey, just chewy which is a wonderful combination with the creaminess of the Mousse.

White Chocolate Mousse Cake

Serves 12 - 16

INGREDIENTS:

BASE:

4 Eggs, beaten until creamy, in a medium mixing bowl
2 TB Water
2/3 cup Caster Sugar
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
1 cup Flour
3 TB Butter, melted

MOUSSE:

600g (21.2 oz) White Chocolate, good eating quality
4 cups Fresh Cream  {whipping cream/double cream}, divided
1 TB Gelatin, plain

Candy Cane, coarsely chopped  {optional}
Edible glitter  {optional}

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a 24 centimeter loose bottom cake pan and line the base with baking paper.
2.) Cake : Bring the Water and Caster Sugar to a boil for a minute until the Sugar has dissolved - remove from the stove.
3.) Whilst beating the Eggs, add the warm dissolved Caster Sugar in a thin stream to the Eggs - beat 2 - 3 minutes on high.
4.) Sift the Cocoa and Flour over the Egg mixture - beat another minutes, scraping the sides and bottom halfway through.
5.) Add the Butter - mix until combined - pour batter into the prepared cake pan - bake 20 minutes or until a tester comes out clean {the cake does not rise much} - remove from the oven and let cool completely in the pan.
6.) Mousse : Melt the White Chocolate and let stand to cool to room temperature.
7.) Place the Gelatin in a small bowl - cover with just enough water - it should be fully sponged after about 3 minutes - heat 1/4 cup Fresh Cream until hot - add to the Gelatin and stir until the Gelatin has dissolved and is runny.
8.) Meanwhile, beat the remaining Fresh Cream until stiff peaks form - whilst still beating, add the melted White Chocolate and the dissolved Gelatin {NEVER stop beating} - beat until all is well combined.
9.) Scoop onto the baked chocolate Cake base and chill overnight.
10.) Remove carefully from the pan - sprinkle with Candy Cane and dust with Edible Glitter if using.

Use a sharp knife to slice into serving portions - leftovers must be kept refrigerated.
