Eggless Orange Curd & Chocolate Mousse Tart

Just forgive me for posting again a chocolate mousse dessert, i couldnt stop myself as this chocolate mousse tart topped with eggless orange curd was our recent favourite. Yes this layered orange curd and chocolate mousse tart makes an excellent dessert as well if you are looking for something different for your dessert after meal. Orange curd and chocolate mousse, both makes excellent dessert when served separately. But these two ingredients makes an excellent dessert as well. We doesnt need any reason to prepare this utlimate tart eventhough the cooking and baking process asks for bit time consuming. You can bake the tart base earlier a day and then fill it with eggless chocolate mousse and orange curd the next day.

Orange curd & chocolate mousse tart

Usually orange curd asks for eggs but my version of orange curd is completely eggless and very simple to dish out as well. Once topped over an eggless chocolate mousse, both the mousse and orange curd makes an excellent filling to enjoy this chocolate loaded tart. Since i running this week's blogging marathon with Layered dish as theme, i dont want to miss a chance to post this tart as this tart suits prefectly for this theme. You can also replace very well the orange curd with just a chocolate ganache if you feel lazy to dish out orange curd. Just mix and match the filling for this tart and enjoy thoroughly.
