This punchy lemon mousse will cleanse the palate and satisfy that sweet craving at the end of a meal. For a special finish, garnish it with fresh berries, toasted shaved coconut or crushed ginger cookies.


  • 6 egg yolks
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup (250 mL) granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) whipping cream, (35%)
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla
  • 4 passion fruit


  • Preparation
    In large heatproof bowl, whisk together egg yolks, eggs, sugar and lemon juice. Set over saucepan of simmering water; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened enough to mound on spoon and space remains after spoon is drawn through, 10 to 12 minutes.

    Strain through fine sieve into large bowl. Place plastic wrap directly on surface; refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.
    Whip cream with vanilla; gently stir one-third into lemon mixture. Fold in remaining whipped cream mixture. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
    Before serving garnish with the pulp of passion fruits
