Strawberry Chocolate Mousse Cake Recipe

Cook Time: 4 hours 40 minutes



  • 1 layer chocolate cake/brownies
  • 300g fresh strawberries
  • 2 tbsp fine sugar (or more)
  • 1 egg, yolk only
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp chocolate powder
  • 2 tsp unflavored gelatin
  • 150mL milk
  • 1.5 cup whipping cream (30%)
  • 1 tbsp sugar


  1. Prepare the layer of cake/brownie and place it in your cake mold.
  2. Slice 1/2 of the strawberries in half, arranging them around your mold (touching, side-by-side, pointed ends up, with cut sides against the side of the mold).
  3. Place the remaining half of strawberries in the center. Set aside.
  4. In a bowl, mix the sugar, egg yolk, vanilla, and chocolate powder.
  5. In a small saucepan, add in the gelatin and milk. Heat until gelatin is dissolved.
  6. Pour milk mixture into chocolate mixture and mix well. Place the bowl in cold water while mixing. Let cool and the mixture should become thick.
  7. Whip the cream with 1 tablespoon of sugar until stiff peaks form.
  8. Fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture until blended thoroughly.
  9. When done, pour it into your mold until it covers strawberries. Refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.
  10. Decorate and serve.
