A delicious mousse made from freshly picked raspberries
Ingredients
  • 300g raspberries
  • 250ml double cream
  • 80g white sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 4 gelatine leaves
  • A few raspberries for garnish
Instructions
  1. Blend the raspberries in a blender to make a smooth purée.
  2. Add 60g of sugar to the purée and mix in.
  3. Add a couple of tablespoons of double cream to the purée and place over a low heat, without allowing to boil.
  4. At the same time, soak the gelatine leaves in cold water for about 5 minutes to soften them.
  5. Remove the purée from the heat and leave to cool down.
  6. While the purée is still warm, mix in the gelatine leaves until totally dissolved, then leave mixture to cool.
  7. Whisk the rest of the double cream until soft peaks form. Add the raspberry purée little by little, folding it into the whipped cream slowly, letting air into the mixture.
  8. Beat the egg whites. When peaks start to form, slowly add the rest of the sugar while whisking, until stiff peaks form.
  9. Carefully fold the beaten egg whites into the mixture, as before, to complete the raspberry mousse.
  10. Spoon the mousse into individual glasses, cups or bowls and leave to set in the fridge for 3 to 4 hours.
  11. Garnish each bowl with some fresh raspberries before serving.
