Blueberry Icebox Cake
Only whipping cream could make this light
and airy blueberry mousse cake. It has it all. Delightful to look at, delectable
to taste and there's no baking required!
1 cup (250 mL) sugar
4 cups (1 L) fresh blueberries or
frozen blueberries, thawed
2 pouches (1/4 oz/7 g each)unflavoured gelatine
2 cups (500 mL) 35 % cream
20 large ladyfinger cookies or
2-3 cups (500-750 mL) fresh mixed berries, for garnish
Using a food processor, puree sugar and blueberries together until smooth. Pour 1 cup (250 mL) of puree into a saucepan and add gelatine. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 5 min. Whisk in remaining puree and refrigerate until it thickens but no longer than 2 hours. It must not set.
Whip cream to stiff peaks. Gradually beat in blueberry puree mixture.
Line the bottom and sides of a 9-inch (23 cm) spring-form pan with parchment paper. Place a layer of cookies in the bottom of the pan. Pour half of the blueberry cream over the cookies. Place a second layer of cookies gently over top. Pour remaining blueberry cream over the cookies.
Garnish with fresh mixed berries. Refrigerate overnight to set.
