Tips for the success of the Passion Mousse cake

Before you head to the grocery store and start making a recipe, there are a few things to keep in mind.

Here are some tips for the success of Passion Mousse Cake:

Use ripe passion fruityour

It’s easy to tell if a passion fruit is ripe. The raw fruit has a smooth skin that shrinks when ripe and edible.

However, the fruits must not be too shriveled so that they become old and dry. You can tell by the weight of the passion fruit.

If the fruit is very pale, this may be a sign that the pulp and seeds have dried out.

prepared passion fruitTea juice or passion fruit + water

I’m in Cake, I use 2 passion fruits mixed (with a stick blender) in 2 dl of water, which I filter to make my own “passion fruit juice”.

It doesn’t taste ready, but is much healthier without all the additives.

you can do it allSo choose for yourself whether you want to buy ready-made or make it yourself. If you decide to buy ready-made from the grocery store, you do not need to add extra granulated sugar to the passion fruit mixture.

lieThe tea cake freezes well in the fridge

In order for the cake to be as good as possible, it is important that you let it cool properly in the refrigerator.

I usually leave it for a few hours before serving, but it can also be prepared a day in advance.

Just make sure you cover it properly and that there is nothing in the fridge that smells strongly.

If you have, for example, half an onion in the fridge, completely uncovered, the smell and taste of the onion can enter the cake. Remember to store anything that smells in an airtight container.

be readyWhen you remove the edge of the mold, it is silent.

Depending on how long you let the cake sit and harden in the fridge, the passion fruit mirror may break a little when you remove the edge of the springform pan.

Be very careful and take it slow. If you see it sticking, you can pry it off the edge with a knife.

More about passion mousseCake

Passion mousse cake is a variation of mousse cake. The most common type is probably the chocolate mousse cake made from white or dark chocolate.

In any case, there are also mousse cakes, e.g. raspberry, mango, strawberry and orange.

My Passion Mousse Cake is made from about 14-15 passion fruits to give it flavor, and without ready-made passion fruit juices, so that there are no unnecessary additives in the cake.

Since I use a lot of passion fruit in this recipe, I recommend making the cake at the passion fruit price, otherwise it can get quite expensive!

Can the cake be prepared the day before?

It’s going well!
