Amarula Mousse Cake Recipe

A perfect no-bake choice for children and mom to prepare for Dad on Father's Day. An accompanying home-made card entitled '' You're our 5-Star Dad!'' would be a lovely addition.


Prep Time

15 minutes + 1 hour soakingtime

Cooking Time

min 4 hours


Serves: 8

Recipe Ingredients

  • 50g snackpak seedless raisins
  • 50ml Amarula Cream liqueur (optional)
  • 400ml SPAR fresh milk
  • ½ tub/200g SPAR Quick&Easy Mousse
  • 1 box SPAR shortbread biscuits, roughly crushed
  • 100g packet pecan nuts, roughly chopped

Optional Decoration

50g each white and milk chocolate, melted separately.

Recipe Method

  1. Soak the raisins and the liqueur together in a small bowl, for at least 1 hour, but even better overnight.
  2. Line the base of a SPAR Good Living 19cm diameter non-stick loose-base cake pan with a round of greaseproof paper traced and cut to size.
  3. In a SPAR Good Living 1.5 litre porcelain mixing bowl, beat together the milk and mousse powder according to the on-pack instructions.
  4. Gently stir in the broken biscuits, nuts and soaked raisin mix.
  5. Spoon this mixture into the prepared cake pan, and refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours, but longer is fine.
  6. Decorate the top with stars made by tracing 6 star shapes from the SPAR Good Living cookie cutter set, onto greaseproof paper. Fill each shape with melted chocolate. Set aside to harden. Drizzle leftover chocolate in haphazard squiggles across the cake.
  7. Arrange the stars on top when they are set.

Hints & Tips

Omit the liqueur and raisins and incorporate peppermint essence into the mousse. Grate or crumble a peppermint crisp chocolate bar over instead of the moulding the chocolate stars.
If you leave out the liqueur, increase the milk by 50 ml when mixing the mousse.
