Step 1: You will need

  • 1 lemon, juice of
  • 1 lime, juice of
  • 70 g sugar
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 250 g mascarpone cheese
  • 1 1/2 gelatine sheets
  • 200 ml cream, whipped
  • 1 saucepan
  • 1 mixing bowl
  • 1 whisk
  • 1 small bowl
  • 1 spatula

Step 2: Combine the ingredients

Put into the mixing bowl: the sugar, lemon juice, lime juice, egg yolks and whisk them together briefly.

Step 3: Heat the mixture

Put a saucepan, about a third full of water, onto the hob and bring it to a simmer. Then place the mixing bowl over the saucepan, but don't let it touch the water, so only the steam heats it.

Whisk the mixture constantly for about 3-5 minutes until it begins to thicken, then take it off the heat.

Step 4: Soak the gelatine

While the mixture is still warm, place the gelatine sheets into a small bowl and cover them with cold water. They will take a few minutes to soften.

Step 5: Add the gelatine

Take the softened gelatine sheets out of the bowl and squeeze them gently, to remove any excess water. Place them into the still warm mixture and whisk them in until they have totally dissolved. Then leave to cool to room temperature.

Step 6: Add the cheese & cream

When the lemon mix has cooled, add the mascarpone cheese and whisk it in briskly until it is all completely combined.

Then add the whipped cream and whisk again thoroughly.

Step 7: Place in the fridge

Spoon the mixture into serving glasses and leave them to chill for 3-4 hours in the fridge. This will allow the mousse to texture and set.

Step 8: Garnish and serve

Remove the lemon mousse from the fridge and garnish each glass with a little Candied Citrus peel, (the recipe for this can also be found on VideoJug!) A mint leaf can also be added as a final touch.
