THE BEST lemon mousse recipe

At our lemon mousse selection process the lemon mousse recipe number 1 from Tørsleff´s dessert was chosen as THE BEST lemon mousse recipe. It was interesting to see, that we as tasters all had a preference for the traditional lemon mousse recipes.

Lemon mousse: number 1 from Tørsleff's
  • 4 eggs - divided into egg white and egg yolk
  • 100 g sugar
  • juice and peel of 1½ lemon (organic)
  • 4 leafs of gelatin
  • 1 dl whipping cream for topping
  1. Wash the lemon - grate the peel of the lemon into very fine pieces.
  2. Place the gelatin leafs in cold water.
  3. Whip egg yolks, sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest together.
  4. Remove the gelatin leafs from the water, lets them melt in a water bath.
  5. Stir the melted gelatin into the egg yolk, sugar, lemon mix. Agitate very, very well, as gelatin strings are very, very unpleasant to eat int eh final lemon mousse.
  6. Whip the egg whip stiff.
  7. Gentle stir the egg white into the egg yolk, sugar, gelatin, lemon mix.
  8. Place the lemon mousse cold in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours.
