Mousse au Chocolat Cake

Mousse au Chocolat Cake

Mousse au Chocolat cake with dark and white mousse. One of many incredibly delicious recipes with aquafaba – the liquid from a can of chickpeas. I will certainly add some more recipes using aquafaba egg-replacers!

Reading all the brilliant recipes out there for Mousse au Chocolat made with aquafaba, I had the idea of creating a cake with chocolate mousse. However, I wanted to make white mousse au chocolat too, so I combined these two ideas and the result looked really good. The white mousse is not as stable as the dark, but forms a very nice top layer in my opinion. The sugar in this recipe may be substituted completely, as described in the recipe, so this cake is not too sinful. In my case, the only problem was getting vegan white chocolate (which I had to order online in the end). But please be very careful when folding the chocolate into the whipped chickpea-mixture.

Mousse au Chocolat Cake - Vegan and Gluten-Free

You may use gluten-free all-purpose flour of your choice for this recipe – I used 125 g millet flour (rice flour should also work), 50 g buckwheat flour, 50g tapioca starch (or potato starch), 1 tsp guar gum. I have also listed the ingredients of the flour mix I used in the Recipe Notes.
