How to make Berry Cream Cheese Mousse Cake

Prepare the berry sponge cake by preheating the oven to 340F (170C) and greasing an 8-inch (20 cm) pan with parchment paper. Separate the egg whites from the yolks. In a medium bowl, mix the yolks, sugar, and vanilla extract until creamy. Gradually add oil and water. Add baking powder and flour to the yolk mixture.

 In a separate large bowl, mix egg whites with salt until foamy, then gradually add sugar. Fold the whipped whites into the yolk mixture and gently fold in the fresh berries. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 35-40 minutes. Let it cool and remove from the pan.

Meanwhile, prepare the berry sauce by boiling strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, sugar, and lemon juice until thickens. Reserve 4 tablespoons of sauce. 

Prepare the berry cream cheese mousse by dissolving gelatin and mixing it with the remaining berry sauce. In a separate bowl, mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, and the gelatin berry mixture. Whip the cream and fold it into the cream cheese mixture. 

Assemble the cake by inverting the cake onto a platter, spread reserved sauce on top, and pour the berry cream cheese mousse over it. Refrigerate for at least 4-6 hours. Decorate with fresh berries and dust with powdered sugar.

  1. Hi, can I make the recipe gluten-free by substituting the all-purpose flour with potato flour?

    1. Ella - Home Cooking Adventure Author says:

      Yes, exactly. I would replace with almond flour or oat flour, but that is just a preference of mine.

  2. John Tepper says:

    Yummy, but as the cake cools, it shrinks.
    Then when you top it, it over flows the side of the cake that shrunk.
    How do you stop that?

    1. Ella - Home Cooking Adventure Author says:

      I like to use an adjustable cake ring when adding the mousse on top of the cake. It is very helpful.
