Introduction

This is a really decadent to eat, but easy to prepare sweet. I'm always looking for ways to use up egg whites, so it's a double bonus. The serving suggestion is to serve this mousse with some sauteed apples - and it works perfectly, but it's also a lovely treat just as is. Comes from the cooking show 'Fresh'.

    • Love the simple and delicious ingredient list but I wonder how this mousse is going to stiffen?
