Christmas matcha mousse cake is a gorgeous three-layer cake made with matcha and vanilla mousse, all on a keto red velvet cake. It´s totally a show stopper for your holidays.
I always wanted to make a dessert using matcha tea and I was so obsessed with it that I couldn’t stop thinking of ways to use matcha on a dessert.
Christmas time is around the corner, and I’m really anxious to move into Christmas baking. So, I wanted to create a dessert for my table at Christmas dinner. Joining these two wishes came up this amazing mousse cake made with this matcha green tea.
Do you know what matcha tea is?
It’s a form of green tea that’s been enjoyed in China and Japan for hundreds of years. The leaves are made into a powder that’s far stronger than regular tea, so a little can go a long way.
Antioxidants are substances in foods that can help protect your cells from damage. Catechins, an antioxidant in matcha, may help with low blood pressure and the “bad” cholesterol. It also may help to protect your cells against cancer.
Matcha and vanilla mousse cake is low carb, keto, sugar-free and completely healthy. You can have a dessert that is going to impress your guests without the guilty complaining.
How to make this Christmas matcha mousse cake?
This cake is more simple to make than you can imagine because all of the mousse layers are made exactly the same way! Don’t believe me? Let’s see:
- First, you will make the red velvet cake (don’t forget to let it cool completely before adding the two mousses).
- Prepare the mousse that is going to be divided into two parts: pour half of the vanilla mousse into the pan. You will need to let it rest in the freezer for half an hour before adding the matcha layer.
- Add the matcha powder to the remaining filling and blend one more time until smooth.
- Pour this mixture over the first mixture in the pan. Refrigerate for 4-6 hours to set or overnight.
This awesome keto and low carb mousse cake has a moist, fudgy red velvet cake base and two layers of light mousse. This is a dream to slice. If you use a hot (and dry!) knife, and a chilled cake, you’ll get clean, even layers and a slice that’s easy to move onto individual plates.
Due to its elegant presentation and a complex body of textures and flavors, this mousse cake has quickly become one of my favorite dessert of all time. And, I must confess that I´m not a big fan of matcha tea. But I think that it makes elegant and sumptuous desserts, like this cake!
This heavenly dessert should be on every dessert bucket list!
