Strawberry Yogurt Mousse Cake: Tangy sweet that you can't say no!

I always need a break from the oven, well, not that I feel bored, but sometimes, cool dessert is great too (You can see that I make a lot of different dessert, bake, non-bake, ice or fry. I love to do all of them, haha).
So, today, I just stay away from the oven only a little bit, but close to the refrigerator instead ^ ^. This cool dessert is very refreshing, from the yogurt and the strawberry, and as always it's very easy to make.

When press the crumb into the pan (or ring molds), be sure to press it firmly, so when you remove the molds the crumb will stay in place (esp. for the small ring molds).
The frozen strawberry is very good to keep in the freezer, you can make many kinds of dessert from it, and I love to use it. But if you want to make it with the fresh one, just replace the same amount.

I love to serve this little dessert in the afternoon, with a cup of tea, well, you can imagine, the softness of the mousse, with the tangy and sweet taste, what a good day!

Ps. my nephew really love this dessert, even I never think about it before, he had 2 pieces in one afternoon ^ ^, and he said that it tastes like a cup of strawberry flavored yogurt but much much more delicious, haha, well I'm so happy.


Strawberry Yogurt Mousse Cake
Makes 18 cm cake pan ( or 7 - 6cm ring)


100g

Biscuit (put in food processor and process to become fine crumb)

50g

Salted butter (melted)

400g

Frozen strawberry

25ml

Lemon juice

80g

Sugar

8g

Gelatin

240g

Yogurt

230 ml

Whipping cream


I use rolling pin to crush the biscuit instead of using the food processor -well, I hate to wash the food processor, ^ ^.

Mix biscuit and butter together and press into 18 cm cake pan (with removable bottom or 8 - 6cm ring).

Bloom the gelatin. Put the strawberry and lemon juice in a blender and blend until smooth.

Pour the mixture into the pan add the sugar and heat until the sugar melt.

Put the gelatin into the strawberry and stir until smooth; let the mixture cool to room temperature.

When the strawberry cool, pour the yogurt into the strawberry mixture, whisk to combine.

Whisk the cream until soft peaks form; spoon 1/3 of the whipped cream into strawberry mixture and fold the strawberry mixture lightly back into whipped cream .

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan.

Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm.

This looks so cool and refreshing. Since I make my own yogurt, I'm always looking for new recipes to use it. Now I just need to translate the amounts.

Hi Pook, If I'm using fresh strawberry what is the amt required? Thanks

Hi, Fatmum
You can use the same amount of the fresh strawberry.

Hey Pook,

So beautiful and looks delicious! :) Sorry if I ask a silly question..what do you mean by "bloom the gelatin"? :P

Hi, Melody
Bloom the gelatin is easy ^ ^, just place a sheet of gelatin in a water about 2-3 minutes before you using it. When use take the gelatin out of the water and squeeze the excess water out.

I made it in 18 cm ring, very nice. Love it..but the most difficult step to me is to remove the entire cake to the serving plate. How did you do it?

Thanks for sharing great recipe.

Hi, secret admirer
It will be better if you place the cake on the cardboard before remove the ring, because the base of the cake is a bit crumble, so moving it will be very hard to do.

Hi, I know it's been quite a while since you posted the recipe, but I just wondering if powdered gelatine would be a good enough substitute for the normal gelatine sheets? Thank you in advance!

dailydelicious said...

Yes, you can substitute the powdered gelatin ^^, they are the same (except when the recipe calls fro special kind or strength of gelatin, like platinum it will be another problem) .

Hi~

Just wondering what is the amount of water needed to bloom the powdered gelatin for the needed 8g?

Thanks!

dailydelicious said...

You will need 40 ml of water for blooming the gelatine.
