Ingredients for a strawberry mousse cake for 8 to 10 people:

80g of sugar
80g ground almonds
4 sheets of gelatin (8 g) (you can replace with 2 g of agar agar if necessary)
40g icing sugar
380 ml full cream
Almond cookie base
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Separate whites from yellows. Whisk the yolks with the sugar.
Add the cornstarch and ground almonds, mixing between each addition.
Whisk egg whites until stiff. Add them to the preparation. First add a good spoonful of egg whites and stir vigorously to soften the batter. Incorporate the rest very gently, with a spatula.
Pour everything into an adjustable circle set to 20 cm in diameter, placed on a baking sheet covered with baking paper.
