Citron Mousse au Chocolat RECIPE

Hub-UK first came into existence back in May 2000. Seems a long time ago now!

Back then the internet was a very different place with much more of an amateur feel to it. In a lot of ways it was a pleasanter and more friendly place to hang out. For those of us interested in food and cooking it was a great opportunity to chat and share ideas with people living in other parts of the world.

It was also a time when everyone involved in cooking, whether they were just a keen amateur, a busy mum, a grandmother with a lifetime of kitchen experience or a professional chef just starting a career in the kitchen or one who was an old hand working at the stove, was happy to share recipes so others could enjoy them.

A lot of the details of who contributed what have either become blurred or disappeared over the years but the recipes are still worthwhile either in their own right or for the inspiration they might give.

"This mousse is best if it's made a couple of days before serving."


400 g (good 14 oz) white chocolate
8 egg whites
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbs freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 tsp finely grated lemon peel
4 dl (2 cups) whipping cream

  • Finely chop the chocolate and put in a bowl over a waterbath. Make sure the water is not too hot - the chocolate should just barely melt.
  • Remove the bowl from the heat and set aside.
  • Beat the egg whites very stiff in a bowl.
  • Quickly beat in the lukewarm white chocolate into the egg whites, which will then fall apart - and that's just what they're supposed to do, so don't panic!
  • Add cinnamon, lemon juice, and lemon peel.
  • Lightly beat the cream.
  • Gently fold it into the chocolate mixture.
  • Pour the chocolate mousse into a bowl, cover with plastic foil and leave in a cold place overnight so that the mousse sets properly.

Serves 8 - 10
