Creamy lemon curd mousse


  1. 250g tub mascarpone
  2. 200g tub fromage frais
  3. 175g lemon curd
  4. Good squeeze of lemon juice
  5. 1 large egg white
  6. 6 tbsp lemon or orange liqueur


  1. 1. In a large bowl, whisk together the mascarpone, fromage frais and 100g lemon curd until smooth. Add the lemon juice and whisk briefly. Rinse the beaters.

  3. 3. Meanwhile, mix the remaining curd with the liqueur to give a smooth sauce. Spoon a little over each mousse and serve with your favourite crunchy biscuits.
