How to make fruit of the forest mousse as a cake filling
This recipe should be enough to fill one layer of a 9/10″ round cake / a cake with a diameter of 22-25 cm. For a 12" / 30 cm cake, you need to double the recipe.
  • 250 grams of fruits of the forest (2 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • Seeds from one vanilla bean
  • 2 dl yogurt - plain / unflavored. (approx. ⅜ cup + a bit more)
  • 500 ml heavy cream (18 oz / 2 cups + 2 tablespoons)
  • 4-5 sheets of gelatin
  1. Whip the heavy cream. You should whip until soft peaks form. Place the whipped cream in the fridge
  2. Boil the berries for 5 minutes.
  3. Mix the berries with sugar and vanilla bean. Allow the berries to cool for approx. 10 minutes.
  4. Soak the sheets of gelatin in cold water for 10 minutes. Wring to remove excess water.
  5. Place 2 spoonfuls of the berry mixture in a pot and add the gelatin sheets. Stir over medium-low heat until the gelatin has melted. Remove from heat right away when the gelatin is dissolved.
  6. Mix the melted gelatin together with the rest of the berries.
  7. Then, gently fold in the yoghurt.
  8. Then, gently fold the whipped cream into the mixture. Use a rubber spatula.
  9. Place the bowl in the fridge and allow it to set for some hours.
