Mousse di mele – Apple mousse with zabaione

Recipe 3:  when my mum did this dessert for the first time i was amused by the fact that was so good but not massively heavy. Being based on apple this is the perfect dessert after a quite heavy dinner with lots of courses.

Ingredients for 6 people: 1 kg. of  Golden apples, limon zest, 4ooml whip cream, 100 gr. of sugar. For the Zabaione: 3 eggs, 6 spoons of sugar and 100gr of whip cream, some spoons of Marsala or porto wine and cinnamon.

Start the preparation cutting all the apples in little pieces, taking of the skin e put them to cook with 2 spoons of  water, some lemon zest and the sugar. Leave it there until soft and keep on mixing until dry but take care to don’t let them stick to the pan. Add some more water if needed.

Let them cool down and pass all in a mixer. Then whip the cream and add it to the apple mix to create the mousse. When ready, just place it in the fridge.

Now you need to prepare the Zabaione :  Mix 3 egg yolks with sugar until creating a creme, add some marsala or porto wine and cook putting the recipient in another saucepan full of hot water and on the fire. We call this way to cook “bagno maria” so the fire is not in direct contact with the ingredients but they get cooked by the hot water.

Mix until getting thick and when ready leave it in a side to cool down. Then add the whipped cream and put in the fridge on top of the apple mousse.
Serve with some cinnamon on top and enjoy!

While the apples mix can be prepared the day before and put it in the fridge, the zabaione need to be prepared the same day that you are going to serve it and placed on top of the mousse and in the fridge. In this way, this recipe it’s perfect when you have guests and you don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen or fight with the oven!

PS. Mamy, questo dessert ha battuto ogni aspettativa…anche da parte mia! a me che non piace molto lo zabaione, il misto con la mousse di mele e’ sembrato meraviglioso. Insomma addirittura meglio di cio’ che ricordassi! Buonissimo…io c’ho pure aggiunto una spruzzata di cannella all fine!


Mousse di pesche – Peaches mousse (-31 weeks)

Recipe 67: The summer is here and that’s the time of the good fresh fruit and ice creams! During the week i was desperate for some sweet stuff but i have been eating and drinking so much lately that i could not thing in anything then fruit and i remembered the nectarines with sugar my mum used to prepare when i was little. So i went online and i looked for something similar and i found an amazing recipe, very ligh, fresh and really good! I just made some little changes and here it is!

Ingredients for 2 people: 4 peaches, a spoon of tequila or Amaretto di Saronno if you like almonds taste, 3white eggs, 60gr of sugar, some biscuit or amaretto for the decoration.

The recipe is super easy: wash 3 peaches, cut them in half, take of the skin and the stone and put them in a blender in little pieces. Add 40gr sugar and a spoon of liquor. Mix it all until all gets liquid and place it in a side.

At this point you need to whip up the white of 3 eggs. For me that was always something very difficult to do, but with the new machine it was very easy. However the recipe was suggesting to put some drops of lemon juice in it and it’s something i never seen before, so maybe was also for this reason that it came particularly well.

While you are mixing the whites, add 20 gr of sugar little by little until it becomes a mousse. Then add this to the peach juice you created before and after mixing, serve in glasses and place in the freezer for some hours.

Half an hour before to serve it to your guests cut the remaining peach in slices and marinate it with a bit of sugar and a little spoon of the liquor you have previously used. Then take out from the fridge the glasses with the mousse and wait around 20 minute for the mix to defrost a bit.

Finally add the peaces slices with the sugar on top and some little pieces of biscuits or amaretto or almonds!
