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 takes around 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.

Perfect for Christmas dessert !

Sprinkled with Candy Cane 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. However, 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.

Beautiful dessert (because you eat with your eyes first!) delicious, and .. uhm, make two if you are having guests over as everyone will want seconds ! (making 2 is just a suggestion…but highly recommended!)

Prep Time 15 minutes
Bake Time 20 minutes
Chilling Time 8 hours
Total Time 8 hours 35 minutes

Ingredients

BASE:

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

MOUSSE:

  • 600 g White Chocolate good eating quality ( 21 oz )
  • 4 cups Fresh Cream (whipping cream/double cream), divided
  • 1 TB Gelatin

TO DECORATE:

  • Candy Cane coarsely chopped (optional – depending on occasion)
  • Edible Glitter (optional – depending on occasion)

Instructions

BASE:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) – spray a 24 centimeter ( 9 inch ) loose bottom cake pan and line the base with baking paper
  2. 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

MOUSSE:

  1. Melt the White Chocolate and let stand to cool to room temperature
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Scoop onto the baked chocolate Cake base and chill overnight

TO DECORATE:

  1. Remove carefully from the pan – sprinkle with Candy Cane and dust with Edible Glitter if using

I think I messed it up somehow at the last step when I added the gelatin mixture. The final cake was lumpy. ?

Doreen, did you perhaps add the dissolved gelatin in one shot or gradually as you kept beating ? I have never had the mousse go lumpy, but think that could be the only reason ?

Hi, im LOreal, this cske looks absolutely yummy, i want to make this cake for my sons birthday, i would like to know if i can put a mirror glaze over this cake? Thank you.

Hi LOreal, I Googled this and it does look like mirror glaze would be fine to use. The mousse cake is fairly stiff (not melting soft) on the top and sides. Please let me know if you tried this and how the cake turned out ?
