This dessert is made by combining a simple chocolate cake and a creamy Raspberry Mousse into a glass. You can also replace the raspberries with strawberries, blueberries, and even blackberries. I’m going to show you step by step how to make this delightful dessert!

How to make this Chocolate  Raspberry Mousse Parfait :

There are two parts to this recipe. The first one is to make a chocolate cake. This cake is simple to make. It takes less than 20 minutes to complete. The second part is the mousse; this one is ready in less than 5 minutes.

Ingredients to make the Cake:

½ cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

3 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

½ cup granulated sugar

⅓ cup oil (I used canola oil)

½ cup whole milk

1 large egg (room temperature)

Ingredients to make the Mousse:

1 cup  of Mascarpone cheese

1 ½  cup fresh raspberries

8 tablespoon powdered sugar

1-2 drops of food coloring (optional)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cake:

The first step is to preheat the oven to 350-degree Fahrenheit. Then in a big bowl, sift the flour and baking powder

How to assemble this Chocolate  Raspberry Mousse Parfait 

First, using your hands, crumble the chocolate cake. This is the part that can be a little bit therapeutic if you ask me!

Depending on your taste, you can put one layer of chocolate cake, then one layer of the mousse, add some fresh raspberries in between each layer or just put them on top. I even garnish with some mint to make it pretty! There is no rule for putting this delicious dessert together; have fun with it.

  1. This recipe looks delicious but is there a way I can make it vegan? Would it work if I substitute the milk for soy milk? And do you know what I can use to substitute the cheese?

    • Hi, I definitely know that oat milk is a great substitute for whole milk. For other substitutes, I am not sure. Please let me know how it turns out if you get to make a vegan version of this recipe. You have inspired me to explore vegan recipes Thank you!
