pumpkinmousse (1)Estonians like semolina-based mousse. Look at my blog! Semolina Mousse, Rye Mousse, Barley Mousse. Served with cold milk this is a wonderful and delicious dessert.
This dessert is special because of pumpkin and buckthorn. Pumpkin and buckthorn are forming a perfect combination of sour and sweet and… Look at these colours!

The mousse is soft and airy and fluffy like a cloud!
