Mango Mousse Cake 芒果慕絲蛋糕
Summer is the mango season, the sweetness of the mango is very suitable for making dessert. This mango mousse cake is rich in mango flavour yet very fresh and light. The mousse is so mousse-like, with the crunchy biscuit base, so delicious and great for any occasion.
I love to use mango to make dessert, mango pudding, mango sticky rice, sobert, ice-cream…The sweetness of mango seem like to match everything well. Not too sweet, smell so good and very beautiful on dessert.
This mango mousse cake with the biscuit base instead of sponge cake, cause sometimes the sponge cake will become soggy after chill in fridge. The mousse is so light, gently fold the whipped cream in mango puree, let it set for few hours. It is definitely easy to make dessert, just need time to chill. But after you taste it, you know all the effort is worth it!
For the biscuit base, crush the digestive biscuit in a ziplog bag with rolling pin. Mix it with melted butter, then transfer to a cake tin or mousse tin. Press it and chill in fridge for 30 minutes.
For the mango mousse, you can make your mango puree or buy from a shop. Melted the gelatin powder and sugar with hot water, then add in mango puree. Beat the whipping or double cream into soft to medium peak form. Gently fold the cream into the mango puree, transfer to mousse tin, chill in fridge until set, for at least 3 hours.
For the glaze top, mix the mango puree with hot water, gelatin and sugar. Let it cool and pour on top on the mousse, you can also add some mnago on top for decoration. Chill in fridge again until set.
