Raspberry Mousse Cake:Give it a try, why don't you make it today?

I believe that most people always think that this kind of cake will be very hard to make, but believe me, it's easy if you really want to.
This kind of cake is an assemble of many elements, like sponge cake (this cake is Joconde), the mousse, and syrup. It's not hard if you can do all of this, you will be able to crate many kinds of lovely dessert (or show pieces , haha).  


I didn't think that I'm good at this and I have to learn and practice more and more, because I didn't have a chance to go to the baking school even I really want to but well, we have to accept that we can't get everything that we want in our life ^^. So, for me baking and more baking at home is both fun and fulfill my passion.
All I want to tell you is "Don't be afraid to try it". There is nothing that is hard to do if you really want to. 
For this time, I love the look of this dessert and after reading, I want to give it a try. 
About this dessert, the base of the mousse contains the Italian meringue which will make the mousse lighter in both texture and taste. If you never making the Italian meringue before, it may be the right time to try ^^, and after this you will be happy to know that you can make many kinds of lovely dessert with Italian meringue base.
For the apricot glaze, you can use the strained apricot jam instead, but it will have a bit of light brown color than clear like this one.
I love the taste of this mousse, not too sweet and the texture is very light. The Joconde biscuit is good too, it's not dry like other kind of the sponge cake and great when combine it with the mousse
So, after I make a lot of persuasion I think you are ready to give this cake a try, right? ^^You will fine it's easier than you imagine, believe me.

Beat egg whites until soft peak form, add half of the sugar, a little by little, and beat  until stiff peak form.




Beat egg yolks and whole egg with almond powder, the icing sugar and the rest of the sugar and until light and thicken.
Add 1/3 of the meringue with half of the flour, fold to combine, add 1/3 of the meringue with the rest of the flour and fold to combine, then add the rest of the meringue. 




Fold until fully combine.



Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 10 minutes or until golden.
Peel the baking paper and let the biscuit cool.

Set the biscuit into the 15 cm cake pan, or cake ring.


Make the Simple syrup:




Put the water and sugar into small saucepan and bring to boil, until all the sugar dissolved, take off the heat and let the syrup cool.

Make the Italian meringue:

In a sauce pan, put the sugar and water and bring to boil over medium low heat.

The syrup is ready when it reaches 117°C; pour it over the egg whites and continue whisking until cold.

Smooth the top and refrigerate for 12 hours.

Bonnie Chang said...

hi I was wondering if you will consider alternating this recipe for a 9 inch cake.... 15 cm cake is too small cos it goes too fast... too yummy lol

dailydelicious said...

Make 2.5 times of the original recipe will fit 9 inch pan. ^^

Lyla M said...

Hi,I just discovered your blog, I'm in love with it!!Those stunning cakes just make my mouth watering yummm :D I can't wait to try this recipe.Thanks for sharing!One question, In the recipe,You added Italian meringue to make the mousse.I wonder if I could use French meringue instead and will it make a difference of the texture?

dailydelicious said...

No, the Italian meringue is different from French meringue ^^.
If you use the French meringue, the mousse won't set properly.

Lyla said...

@dayliydelicious I see.Thanks for your answer! :)
