This is a throw back to younger days. I couldn't believe how quickly I got this recipe finished. From gathering the ingredients to placing in the fridge was about 15 minutes.

The result speaks for itself, light, fluffy with a subtle sweetness and a great fruit flavour.

Enjoy!


Preparation Time: 15 minutes plus setting time
Cooking Time: 4-6 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
200 gm Strawberries
3 tbsp. water
4 tbsp. caster sugar
4 sheets leaf gelatin
2 egg whites
200 ml cream
TO SERVE
Macerated strawberries (I soaked mine in marsala with a splash of sugar)
4 gaiety wafer biscuits


Method
  • Soak the gelatin in cold water.
  • Place the strawberries, water and 2 tbsp. sugar in a pan and bring to the boil. Lower the heat and reduce liquid by half and puree. Drain the gelatin and blend into the warm syrup then pass through a fine sieve.


  • Whip egg whites until soft peaks, slowly add the remaining sugar, continuing to whip at all times.
  • Whip cream until just firm.
  • When the strawberry syrup is cool, gently fold in the egg whites, then the cream. Take care not to over mix and beat out too much air.


  • Once incorporated pour into prepared moulds or serving dish and refrigerate until set, approx. 2 hours.
  • TO SERVE
  • Remove mousse from mould and place on a serving plate. Crush the wafers and place next to mousse, spoon strawberries and some syrup on to the plate.
  • Mousse can be spooned into a "quenelle" and placed onto a serving plate or glass bowl.
