Mousse of Almonds Recipe from Mould

A lovely request from Folk Haven for the recipe from this mould (see post here).

Take 3/4 of a cup of ground almonds 

2 cups of cold water

1 cup of cream 

2 oz of gelatine well dispolved in 4 tablespoons of hot water

1/2 cup of sugar 

1 /2 teaspoon of almond  essence

and blend together 

Allow to thicken slightly 

Pour into mould

Stir in 1-2 oz of toasted split almonds

Leave to set

1 cup - 8 fluid oz.

This is my best guess at the recipe taken from the mould.

And here is a peek at a post coming up ...

ps: guess what I learned today - you can write your text in a document and pick a fancy font (I picked Dickens 24) and paste it into your post. I always wondered how other bloggers sometimes had such creative fonts in a post. Now I know !


  1. What a lovely recipe!

  2. The recipe sounds delicious! I would just LOVE it - if someone made it for me! Seems like everything that sounds good to me seems like too much trouble. I used to make new recipes all the time. I find myself using only the old standards I know so well. Perhaps this winter I will broaden my culinary horizons!

    That mold is SO unique!

  3. Thank you so much for posting this! It loos scrumptious and I look forward to trying it. Pinning it. :-)

  4. I didn't know that about the font! Makes total sense!

  5. what a neat idea for a bowl--it makes a great gift.
    the bedspread is lovely, my grandmother has a similar tablerunner when i was growing up.:p

    My Blue Monday

  7. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Blue Monday, Joy.

  8. amazing - a recipe on a mould! and thanks for the hint about the font - I should do that too! A nice font certainly makes a post more attractive. Have a wonderful week.

  9. What an interesting mould, the hand whisk is a vintage classic also. Have a great week.

  10. Fun mold and great recipe! Thanks for the info on the fonts! I too wondered how others did this. Love the yo-yo quilt!

  11. Never saw a mold like that. Most interesting. Also, thanks for the infomation about the fonts. I can use all the help I can get.

  12. I love the shape of the mould. And the recipe sounds interesting. Will you be making it?
