Lemon curd mascarpone mousse

Lemon Curd Mascarpone Mousse

This is a quick last minute dessert which takes minutes to put together and yet looks like you have been working at it for hours.  I served it with my gluten-free almond tuiles from last week, which balances the tangy lemon curd and rich mascarpone mousse.   

 Lemon curd and mascarpone mousse

Here is the lemon curd recipe which I make on a regular basis, and you will always find a jar in my fridge.  If you don’t want to make it, get a jar from the store.

The Gluten Free almond tuiles recipe is Here. They are great with any dessert or just with coffee.  And if you don’t want to bake biscuits, grab some crispy biscuit cigars, but I do suggest you use some form of biscuit with this dessert as it is very rich and decadent.

This mousse can be served without the lemon curd by  just adding assorted berries, or layer it with chunks of your favourite chocolate. Its fabulous to use as a filling for a sponge cake as its soft and fluffy and not too sweet.  The possibilites are endless.

    This looks gorgeous! It’s really inspired to have a layer of fluffy mousse over the lemon curd, so simple yet full of flavour.
