One of my all time favourite cakes and I have no doubt that it will quickly become one of yours.

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

    Hi Megan, you don’t melt the chocolate in the thermomix with this one? I have no luck melting on the stove.

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Just do it the microwave on 30 second short bursts.

  2. Liz

    Can I use almond flour in place of almond meal?

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      You sure can

    Fantastic! Have been looking for a something little bit special for Easter celebrations – and thus came can be dressed up any way we want. Thanks Megan!

    On my to do list. It looks very decadent. Very interested in the chocolate crackle base of your pictured cake. Is there a recipe somewhere?

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      It is a pretty tasty one.

  5. Sharon

    Luscious, decadent, tasty and chocolatey goodness in every bite. Beautiful recipe again and the best advice to give to anyone is don’t overcook the cake, 10 minutes first and then only 7 minutes. Took it out of the oven the middle of the cake was still slightly jiggly (only a bit though). I make the chocolate mousse and it was soft and velvety decadence and had enough for the topping for the cake and three little mason jars with fresh raspberries and some shredded macadamia nuts. Use your imagination to make it your own with crunchy granola on top or fresh blackberries and crunchy oven baked slivered almonds. Thanks again Megan.

    This is such a delicious cake. It’s perfect for a special occasion or just because it’s chocolate cake. The mousse on top is a lovely addition. Who said on keto we can’t have our cake and eat it too. Well this one you most definitely can .
    Another great cake to add to my growing list of recipes to make again.

    Is this just standard cooking chocolate used in this recipe or an unsweetened chocolate?
    I’ve been looking for an unsweetened chocolate – either dark or white, available in Australia?

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Hi Mary, I use 95% Lindt or Well Naturally sugar-free dark chocolate which is available in Coles and Woolworths.

  11. Abbey

    Could you use coconut flour instead of almond flour?

    1. Megan

      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
