Nutritional values

Of course, a cake is not exactly suitable as a diet meal! But first of all, the fine pastry is relatively reserved in terms of calories and fat. And secondly, thanks to mango and lime, the mango mousse cake offers a few extra vitamins after all.

Prepare the mango mousse cake the day before you eat it - the longer it is in the refrigerator, the more sliceable it will be. Instead of gelatine, you can use agar-agar (health food store, organic food store) as a vegetarian gelling agent; then please follow the package instructions.
