It’s such a joy to be assigned the blog of friends for the Secret Recipe Club. Feast on the Cheap is a delightful page written by a mother daughter team of foodies…and has been in the Group C rotation for as long as I can remember. This Chocolate Mousse Cake caught my attention…flourless chocolate cake topped with mousse? Can you see why? This recipe comes from Mary Anne’s mom…and is a dessert sure to please your family.
I loved that this gem was made from all pantry ingredients…chocolate, eggs, sugar. No need to run to the market…and in a couple hours, you have a decadent chocolate dessert. My mousse didn’t set up before I took the photos…but it was much better after an overnight stint in the fridge. The hubby raved about this, saying it was “mighty fine” after his first bite. It is not overly sweet…so a perfect dessert for you chocoholics who don’t need a sugar high after a big meal. Thank you, Mary Anne and Mariel, for this lovely recipe. I’m so glad I finally got to bake from your blog! I will also be making your Pesto Parmesan Meatballs very soon…I found so many recipes I want to try.
