Spicy Blueberry Mousse Cake

 

I guess mousse cakes are the thing for me this summer! As you can see, after the dreamy strawberry mousse cake, I wanted to make this rich blueberry mousse cake with a spiced cookie crust. I loove the combination of blueberries and spiced cookies, like speculoos or gingerbreads for instance. They’re the match made in heaven. This combo works all around the year, in the summer party and on the Christmas table. So even though I’ve decorated my summer version with beautiful lilacs, this cake could be easily finished with gingerbreads or other wintery biscuits!

  • I am sorry, the ingredients list says 150 ml… of what? I tried to figure this out from the recipe text, but no mentioning… a second question – does it taste somewhere in between cheesecake/mousse? Is it heavier than a classic heavy cream based mousse? Thank you!

    • I’m so sorry there’s a mistake in the recipe! I’ll correct it immediately. Thank you for letting me know!
      The 150ml is heavy cream and it’s whipped to the cream cheese mixture after mixing cream cheese and powdered sugar together.
      It’s a bit heavier than classic heavy cream based mousse but I think the flavour is pretty close to cheesecake, of course the blueberry taste is strong!
