Nutella Mousse Cake

Today I am bringing you this delicious cake!
Nutella Mousse Cake

Without having to use the oven, this pie is perfect for summer! Normally this cake it's covered with a layer of ganache. I think it is too sweet, so I prefer to add a thin layer of cream and spread a little ganache on the top.

With this recipe you will get a rich mousse cake, which every single bite tastes like heaven!

Enjoy it!


For the cake

1 packet ladyfingers biscuit
1 tablespoon Nutella
1 cup milk

For the mousse

3 tablespoons cold water

1/2 cup heavy cream (35%)
3 tablespoons granulated sugar

5 tablespoons Nutella

Immerse ladyfinger biscuits in warm chocolate milk

Place the soft ladyfinger biscuits on a deep tray

To make the mousse

Then, increase speed to high and beat until it forms stiff peaks

Whisk 1/2 whipped cream at a time into Nutella and cream cheese mixture to lighten
