Maple-Yogurt Mousse - Tuesdays with Dorie

As you can tell from the title of my post, I didn't follow the recipe for "Honey-Yogurt Mousse" that the Tuesdays with Dorie group of bakers is making this month from Baking Chez Moi. Some in my family don't care much for honey as a sweetener so I went with everyone's favourite, maple syrup.
Maple syrup isn't quite as sweet as honey and I reduced the sweetness even further by using only 80ml. I mixed agar agar directly into the yogurt mixture without dissolving it first for a soft set, not quite as firm as the Greek yogurt I started with and much airier because of the whipped cream. 

The mousse had a lovely light texture and the tang of the yogurt played off the sweet maple flavour nicely. We really enjoyed it for dessert with some of our favourite Christmas cookies, Swedish Cinnamon Wafers.

  3. Maple syrup is a great choice. I'm curious how much agar agar is needed for this recipe? What's the ratio?

  4. I really enjoyed this one, my husband thought it was too sweet. Maybe maple syrup is a good choice next time.

  5. I like how you made a family adjustment! Maybe maple syrup would have helped my crew...they weren't too big of fans.

  7. Maple syrup sounds terrific in this recipe, I wouldn't mind it being less sweet too. I liked the texture of the mousse per the recipe but your version looks very delicate and delicious.
