Black and Red Currant Mousse Cake

Johannisbeer-Mousse-Törtchen (3)

In  my parents garden grows one single cassis bush next to the red currant bushes. When I was picking berries two weeks ago I sneaked some cassis into my bowl as well, as I had already the plan in my mind to serve little mousse cakes for the Sunday coffee with my parents.

Light mousse cakes made with Joghurt, berries and white chocolate are especially delicious on hot summer days. I did something similar already as filling of this raspberry charlotte. This time I topped a chocolate sponge with a mousse made of a mixture of red currant and cassis. The mousse hides a kernel of currants and cassis compote. It is a delicious little cake with a slight sourness and bit of sweetness, perfect for lazy Sunday afternoons.

    Hallo und guten Tag.

    Das Johannisbeer Törtchen sind wirklich sehr erfrischend und nicht so “pappig” aus und hört sich wirklich ganz fantastisch an. Ich möchte es gern hier auf Blogspot auf meinem Blog posten und natürlich, Sie als Quelle” zitieren.

    Außerdem wird das auf jeden Fall ausprobiert und nachgemacht. Schmeckt bestimmt auch bei diesen Wahnsinns Temperaturen die herrschen.

    Viele Grüße aus Mayen
    Judith
