Gianduja Chocolate Mousse Cake

Hullo! I hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter weekend. I personally enjoyed long walks through Edinburgh city, along Portobello Beach, climbing Calton Hill,  and scoffing down my Moo Free Bunnycomb egg and The Chocolate Tree coconut milk dark chocolate egg and my lemon sugar pancakes. All in all, a great weekend 🙂

Long-time readers will probably remember this recipe that I created over a year ago for my mother’s birthday, when she came to visit me in Stirling, where I lived at the time. Much to my dismay this recipe had somehow disappeared from my archives and I was ready to tear my hair out (whyyyyyyyy don’t I back things up?????!!) (*immediately invests in Vaultpress) (is then confused about how Vaultpress works) when I remembered this recipe was also published on One Green Planet (as a few of my recipes are). Phew! Heart attack avoided, hair still in place.

Seriously, though. If there is something that often makes you think ‘Hm, I’d hate to ever lose all this [insert whatever] that I spent so much time and effort working on’ GO BACK THAT SHIT UP RIGHT NOW.

I’m pretty annoyed because there was some good writing in that original blog post – I always put a lot of time in effort in writing a good blog post, and writing is half the fun, really.

And now to calm ourselves, let’s have a slice of Gianduja Chocolate Mousse Cake. 

(Note: I know I created a chocolate mousse cake recently BUT this one is quite different. It contains more ingredients and is a bit more, shall we say, sophisticated. (Read: made for those who have the patience to create something so beautiful instead of instant-satisfaction-scoff-it-down chocolate mousse cake.))

  2. I’ve been looking through your archives trying to find an amazing chocolate cake to make my mom for her birthday and this looks like it could be perfect because it looks very special and rich and chocolaty. However, decent hazelnut milk is basically impossible to find around here. Do you think it would work to use soy milk instead? Thanks!


  3. Absolutely lovely! Made for my vegan husbands ‘birthday extravaganza’ and its rather delicious. The hazelnuts didn’t perhaps blend quite as smooth as stated but tastes good!


    • Hi Casey, glad you liked the cake! Nuts can be a bit tricky to blend sometimes, it helps if you have a tamper though! x
