Epcot Recipe Exotique Mango Mousse and Coconut Cake

When brainstorming my mother’s day menu, I had many options for a dessert recipe. I know I would want to try an Epcot recipe. Les Halle’s Boulangerie-Patisserie in Walt Disney World’s Epcot France pavilion has many amazing desserts. The Exotique Mango Mousse and Coconut Cake is a layered dessert with coconut cake on the bottom, followed by mango mousse and topped with a mango chutney. You can see a picture of the version from Epcot on my Pinterest board.

I decided to try my hand at this dessert recipe for Mother’s Day as my mother loves all things coconut and my son is a big mango fan. I have found by experimenting with this recipe that mango is a bit tricky. The flavor is mild so when combining with other ingredients it can get lost. In addition, the fruit is a bit stringy in texture which can be off putting when pureed.

After much experimentation, I came up with the recipe here which is inspired by the Epcot dessert. While it is a bit different from what you can get at Epcot, it is still quite delicious. I have turned this into a trifle instead of a layered dessert as the mousse has more of a pudding texture and it works well in this form. My mother tried this dish and declared “yummy” so I figure I have a winner.
