I am just gonna say it.  This Keto chocolate mousse cake is the total bomb!  I have made a few variations of this cake and they all taste totally amazeballs!  It is the right amount of dense cake and so soft fluffy mousse.

Mad Creations Chocolate Easy Keto Chocolate Mousse Cake - Unicorn Version

This pic above is of my Jaffa Mousse Cake with Unicorn Cheesecake injections and a “Chocolate Crackle” base.  It was so good! It was for my 46th birthday would you believe.  I wanted to make something a little silly and juvenile to look at, but with a mature palate.  Oh an my “homage” to chocolate crackles (a real favourite of my childhood) are so incredibly good.  Salty, chocolatey and crunchy.

Any way you choose to create your version of the Mousse Cake I have no doubt that you will truly love this recipe and make it many many times.

I know you will enjoy this recipe

  1. Easily one of the best recipes EVER!

  2. Could you use coconut flour instead of almond flour?

    1. Coconut flour does have a high absorption rate. I haven’t tested with it but you would only want to use about 1/4 the amount of almond meal
