Making this Mousse cake is very straight-forward process and extremely easy. As a bonus, you can make it vegan as well.

This recipe calls for almond flour, which I find to be available in most places these days, but if for some reason you can’t find it, you can buy peeled whole or silvered almonds and pulse a few times in a food processor until you have course granules. Just be careful not to process too much or you’ll make almond butter instead. You can also use other nuts to make the flour, and that I leave to your preference.
