Black Forrest Cake Mousse
 
2 Attachment(s)
I saw a recipe on another forum for Black Forrest Cake Mousse. It sounded really good but as soon as I saw it I had some tweaking in mind. I wanted my version to be less compicated. I will show the recipe as posted and then how I tweaked it.

AS equivalent of 3/4 cup sugar (I use sweetzfree)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 pkg. sugar free cherry flavored jello

Warm cream in heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally until it just starts to boil and remove from heat.

Beat eggs, yolks, cocoa powder, AS and salt until thick and smooth.

Whisk about a cup of hot cream into the egg mixture and then whisk the egg mixture into the remaining cream in the saucepan.

Return to heat and stir for a few more minutes until it starts to thicken. Pour mixture into clean bowl, add vanilla, sprinkle jello on top and mix well. (Note: Next time I'm going to try and whip the mixture so it is lighter and fluffier.)

Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate until cooled and thickened.

I think this would look very nice if it was cooled in individual dessert bowls, topped with a dab of whip cream and some lindt chocolate shavings sprinkled on top. (I think I may even use this as a filling when I make birthday cakes and just put a bowl aside for me.)

Mine went like this:

3 cups heavy cream
3 large eggs
3/4 cup dutch proccessed cocoa
1/2 tsp splenda quick pack
1/2 cup powdered erythritol
1 T. not/Sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 pkg. sugar free cherry flavored jello

In a mix bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
Once combined, whisk in the eggs until completely incorporated. This mixture will very sticky and gooey but not to worry.
In a non-stick saucepan over low heat bring 2 cups of heavy cream, vanilla, and the sweetened cocoa egg mixture to a slow boil.
Once at a boil turn off heat and whisk in jello until completely disolved and refrigerate until completely cooled.
While chilling, whip the remaining cup of heavy cream to stiff peaks and set aside.
Once chilled, in an electric mixer with wire whisk, whip the mousse to doube the volume and then blend in the whipped cream until incorporated.

I turned mine into a 9 x 9 glass dish but could be done in individual servings too.

All I can say is if you like chocolate and cherry......your gonna love this!!

I don't know about the original since no servings were listed. mine is approx 4 carbs per square.

jackieba 07-23-2007 08:04 AM

Babsy,
The original recipe (if you use Sweetzfree for the sweetner) would have 31 carbs in the entire recipe (for those watching calories, 2900 calories in the entire recipe) so if you make 9 servings out of it: 4 carbs each and 322 calories and 33 grams fat. If you use another sweetner, you'd need to adjust accordingly.

I am going to use powedered stevia. Thanks

Yummy!!! I've never had chocolate and cherry together - but my favorite thing in the world is orange chocolate which nobody has a sugar-free alternative for. :mad:

This might just do the trick!! Thanks Kevin - awesome as usual. :notwrthy:

Clyde, bella's suggestion reminded me of these. You could sub orange syrup for the blackberry syurp.

Kevinpa, how do you fit all those wonderful goodies into your menu
 
How do you fit all those deserts and stuff into your daily menus? I thought I remember you saying you are diabetic. I am diabetic and would like to know how you manage your diet including these things?

I have quite an extensive exercise regiment that I do daily. Never less than 2 hours a day but most days at least 3 hours. That and eating LC has kept my blood glucose almost normal and I have been med free now for over a year.

Kevinpa 07-24-2007 08:09 AM

Also you have to realize that although I make many things I have strict rules that I live by that I don't deviate from as far as how much I eat per day. Many of the things that I make are for others who would be eating HC things if I didn't provide LC foods for them.

ebonyeyz28 07-24-2007 10:05 AM

Kevin, I'm getting closer and closer to becoming your permanent LC stalker! :hyst:

Thanks for posting yet another wonderful recipe! I'm going to try this but, instead of cherry jello, I'm going to use strawberry! :love:

BABSY 07-24-2007 10:16 AM

oops, I tried to make that a seperate post. I was wondering where it went. I thought I just didnt hit enter when I was done so I made another one. :rolleyes::)

This is a wonderful idea - I've got some Boyajian orange oil that I might try to mix with my Davinci syrup. I'm running out of room for all those Davinci bottles!!!

Thank you Bella and Kevin!!!

I've been making so many goodies lately - I need to go on a diet from my diet!! :o
