A light and fluffy coffee mousse, made with simple ingredients,
perfect for a tasty dessert. We've made this one with the Dualit Hand Mixer
and have served it in our Doppio
1 Shot of Espresso (10ml-15ml)
50g Castor Sugar
1 Large Egg (separated)
50ml Double Cream (whipped to peak consistency or clotted cream)
1 Teaspoon Cocoa Powder
Make a shot of espresso with the coffee blend of your choice
(we'd recommend our new Lungo
Americano or Intense
Espresso Compostable Capsules) and allow to cool.
Separate the egg, placing the egg white in a clean, grease free
Whisk the egg white using the Dualit Hand Mixer
until stiff and peaks are formed and set aside.
In another bowl, whisk together the egg yolk and sugar using
Hand Mixer until pale and creamy.
Slowly add the coffee and the cocoa powder and continue to mix
to form a thick paste.
Whisk in the cream.
Add one spoon of the stiff egg white to the coffee mix and
stir, then use a metal spoon to fold in the remaining egg white.
Take care not to knock the air out of the egg whites!
Spoon evenly into 4 Dualit
Doppio Cups, or two cocktail glasses, and place in the fridge
Dust with cocoa just before serving.
The cocoa powder in this recipe is an optional element to give
the mousse a better colour and to give a slightly richer flavour.
It can be omitted if you prefer the appearance or flavour of the
mousse without it.
For garnish, top with coffee beans.
The Coffee Mousse is great served as a dessert with an almond
wafer or homemade biscotti.
Crush a few digestive biscuits and place in the bottom of the
cups/glasses before spooning the mousse mixture in for an extra
element of texture.
This method is a little different to Chocolate Mousse recipes
where the chocolate aids with the thickening and setting. Adding a
fluid into the mixture, such as coffee, gives a looser texture - if
you want to add more coffee for a stronger flavour, you will need
to add extra cream to thicken again.
