After decades of owning and using Julie Jordan’s Cabbage Town Cafe Cookbook, I finally got around to trying this recipe. You know how you stick a little something between the pages to indicate interest? Or maybe you dog-ear the page? This recipe had both a little slip of paper and a dog-ear.
Another decade or two could have passed, but one day I was struck by how appropriate this dessert would be for making with my 11-year-old grandson. Easy and almost instant! Did I mention delish? All that.
The mousse is quite rich and satisfying. With the whipped cream and fruit added, you could serve eight people with the recipe below. Plan to use small dessert dishes to make it appear you are serving larger amounts than you actually are. Trust me. This is sound advice. It is that rich.
For the uneducated palate, ie: children who did not grow up part of the hippy generation, it is important they understand that carob is NOT chocolate. Carob is its own special experience. Carob is carob. Do not try to pass it off as chocolate. End of soap-box!
