Okay, so I’m cheating a little here and simply including a link to something I’ve previously blogged about: my Mousse Your Own Adventure Cake!
See, this was THE most special cake evahhh when I was growing up and that includes in my adult pre-vegan days. It was my mum’s specialty and was highly requested at family gatherings. This was the requested cake for birthdays, a cake at Easter lunch or a cake at Christmas lunch. There was no way I wanted to try and replicate it using things like silken tofu in the mousse– if I was to replicate it, it had to taste and feel EXACTLY like mum’s version. I was able to achieve that when I discovered aquafaba and I made a mousse with dark chocolate, vegan butter, aquafaba and psyllium husk. All my relatives said this was 100% exactly like the non-vegan version (though of course, the cream on top isn’t dairy cream and I’ve used cashew cream here, hazelnut cream there).
I want to share this for Mofo because to me, nothing else stands out as much as this childhood favourite!
