Lemon Mousse
« on: February 18, 2014, 07:55:35 am »
Name of Recipe: Lemon Mousse
Number of People: 4-6 (depending on self control)
Ingredients:Zest and juice of 2-3 lemons ( with water to top up liquid to 250ml), 2 tbs gelatine, 4 eggs ( separated), 100 grams caster sugar, 300ml cream


Preparation:
Start by juicing and zesting the lemons, if you want to keep the bowl dry until the egg whites, put lemon juice and water up to 250 ml in a heat proof jug, add gelatine and microwave for 40 secs to dissolve the gelatine.  Leave to cool
Add lemon zest, sugar and egg yolks to a bowl and hand whisk.
Add egg whites and a pinch of cream of tartar to thermomix, whisk at 50 degrees on sp 4 for 3-5 mins ( I did not use the butterfly and it worked ok)
Transfer egg whites to a bowl and whip the cream in TM for 30 secs to 2 mins on sp 4, watch carefully in case of separation.
Fold cooled lemon liquid into the yolks, followed by the cream and egg whites.  Do this by hand with a whisk, carefully and slowly until evenly incorporated.

Tips/Hints:
You could do all the steps in the TM but I like to keep my bowl dry when whisking egg whites.  You could easily mix the egg yolks and zest and sugar on Sp 3-4 for 30-60 seconds, remove and set aside, followed by heating the lemon juice, water and gelatine to around 60 degrees for 2-3 mins on sp 1-2, setting aside.  Then rinse and dry your bowl and heating for 2-3 mins on 50 degrees on sp soft to dry the bowl before whisking the egg whites.

Welcome to the forum with your first post Amstine. The Lemon Mousse sounds easy to make and I'm sure very tasty.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
