Orange Mousse.

The Orange Mousse is a lovely Danish dessert, fresh and not to heavy.
This is one of the most popular Danish mousses together with the Lemon Mousse.

The dessert is lovely on a summer’s day and the kids will love it.

Whip the egg yolks and sugar well (to light in colour).
Add Orange and lemon peel and about 2/3 of the juice to the egg yolks and sugar mix.

Whip the egg white to a stiff peak.
Whip the wiping cream.

Heat up the last 1/3 of the juice in the microwave until hot and add the gelatine to the juice, stir until dissolved, let cool a bit and add to the egg yolks mix.

When the egg yolk mix starts setting, mix in the cream (hold some cream back for decoration) and egg whites carefully.

Leave to set for a couple of hours in fridge.

Decorate with cream and grated chocolate or orange pieces.
