The Ultimate Pomegranate Mousse Cake
For one of the most interesting and delicious desserts you’ll ever make, try my Pomegranate Mousse Cake.
Named by Huffington Post as one of the Best Dessert Recipes of all Time this cake will amaze your family and friends!
I wanted to try making a Pomegranate curd, and I hadn’t quite figured out how I was going to use it, so I started by reducing 32 ounces of POM Wonderful, down to 10 ounces. start on high heat and keep an eye on it, turning it down as it gets close. This will give you a nice concentrated syrup to work with! After it was cooled I then added 2 ounces of Pomegranate Liquor.
I picked up a fresh Pomegranate and prepared the arils to use in the cake topping. If you have never prepared a pomegranate before here is a great video telling you how. How to Prepare a Pomegranate.
As I finished up the cake, I still had some of my Pomegranate reduction left, and at that moment it came to me. Lemoncello, and Pomegranate with just a few pomegranate seeds splashed in for fun! I decided to call it a Lemoncello Sunrise. Not being accustomed to drinking with lunch, I decided to take one for the team and give it a try…….the words “Nectar of the Gods” slipped from my pomegranate stained lips, and life was good. We will be making more of those later!
1 oz Limoncello
1 oz Pomegranate reduction or syrup
sprinkle of pomegranate seeds
So there you have it, my version of a Pomegranate Mousse Cake, please let me know if you do make it, I thought it turned out very well. I also gave some to my neighbor to try (since the last thing I needed was a whole cake in the house), and she told me the hint of lemon lightened it up, and it was delicious!
(This yellow cake recipe was much better than my previous attempts at Genoise)
