Earl Grey & Chocolate Mousse Cake--1st attempt

2008年11月27日 00:57

Got some nice loose leaf earl greg tea from a friend the other day.

So I thought...maybe I should make a cake out of it! My body doesn't like caffeine very much but I am always drawn to earl grey flavored desserts.

The sheet gelatin I got a while ago was left unused and I just got some good quality chocolate from Whole Foods for the molten chocolate cake...and the thoughts gathered into one.

I did refer to a sample recipe for this and changed it according to my own convenience. This is the first attempt of my version of earl grey & chocolate mousse cake.


The cake base was definitely too thick (what a shame), but the mousse turned out alright. The chocolate flavor didn't overwhelm the earl grey, which is important.

I didn't bother decorating it with a glaze or chocolate sauce. Would be nice to have some transparent glaze on hand.

Yeah if you looked clearly you'd notice I didn't do a good job filling the mold. I'll do it up side down next time so there wouldn't be gap in between. But overall, taste and texture was good. And hubby liked it.
