Chocolate Bread Pudding with Lemon Mousse Topping

This unusual treat is two desserts in one, because the chocolate bread pudding is topped with a fluffy lemon mousse. Chocolate bread pudding is a popular dessert, which is enjoyed in Belgian and French cooking, all over Puerto Rico, Mexico, Argentina, and the UK, as well as throughout the southern United States. It also features in Louisiana Creole cuisine. This indulgent dessert is not difficult to make at all.

It is important to let the bread pudding rest before you bake it, and this is to ensure the gooey chocolate sauce is able to penetrate through most of the bread layers. You can make the gelatin mousse while you leave it to sit or while it is baking. The light, fragrant citrus mousse sits on top of the rich, mouthwatering chocolate bread pudding and the contrast between the two is great; it is nearly like having two desserts instead of one!

Maybe you are fond of chocolate and have tried a chocolate meringue buttercream recipe or chocolate meringue frosting recipes before. If so, you are sure to enjoy this chocolate bread pudding recipe with its lemon mousse topping. Continue reading

Strawberry Whip Cream Dessert Mousse

This is a delicious gelatin dessert and if you are a fan of easy dessert recipes you will find it quick and simple to make. This strawberry whip cream gelatin dessert can be made with regular gelatin or sugar-free strawberry gelatin and the result will taste the same.

You can make adjustments to the recipe if you want, trying a different flavor of gelatin, or using raspberries instead of the strawberries. As long as you stick with fruity gelatin mixes and similar fruits the recipe will turn out great. Continue reading

Authentic Asian Recipe for Mango Mousse

This recipe for mango mousse is easy to follow and is based on an authentic Asian mango mousse recipe. Mangos are sweet and mouthwatering and you can combine them with water to make sorbet or cream to make mousse. Mangos are available all year, since they are imported, and they are naturally very sweet and juicy. You might not want to add much sugar to this mango mousse recipe, or any at all.

Gelatin is easier to use than JELL-O ®, for this mango mousse, because gelatin is unflavored and JELL-O ® does not come in a mango flavor. The chocolate candies, whipped cream and drizzled melted chocolate are nice garnishes but you can leave the mousse plain if you prefer. The drizzled chocolate should set as soon as it comes into contact with the chilled mousse. Use chocolate ice cream syrup if you have it. Hold it high above the mousse and drizzle zigzags over it. If you like your mousse ice cold, freeze it for half an hour before serving.

This easy recipe for mango mousse is wonderful on a hot day or after a heavy meal. It is also very special after an Asian dinner. Whether you are cooking for the family or entertaining guests, this refreshing mango mousse is always welcome. Use soft, ripe mangos because they are easier to puree and have a sweeter flavor.

Agar agar desserts taste very similar to jello recipes and gelatin recipes. If you like jello recipes, you will like agar agar recipes too.

Agar agar is made from seaweed.

The lime stops it from being too sweet and the orange adds a contrasting fruit flavor. This recipe is suitable for everyone, no matter whether you are a vegetarian, a vegan, or a diehard carnivore. Just because a recipe is suitable for vegans does not mean that other people cannot enjoy it too and this mango mousse is certainly enjoyable.

Silken tofu is excellent for making dessert recipes. It is made from bean curd and it has a very soft flavor. This is a very Asian style type of mousse recipe and you will find it light, refreshing, fruity, and very flavorful.
