Individual Dessert

Lemon Cheesecake Mousse Cups

I am sharing with you today a simple yet tasty mousse recipe. No baking is involved and you don’t even need any baking pans or cake rings as the dessert is served in mini dessert glasses. This is especially convenient when you are hosting a party or home gathering. Each guest could just grab one glass then start digging into it.
EC今天分享一個做法簡單卻很美味的慕絲食譜,完全不需使用焗爐,加上慕絲是用小杯盛載的,因此家中沒有蛋糕模或慕絲圈也能做到哦!開派對或聚會時每人派一杯便可立刻享用,省卻了不少分餅時間,十分方便。

The main ingredients for this dessert are cream cheese and lemon. The mousse itself is light and refreshing and won’t taste as heavy as cheesecakes. Instead of constructing a crust on the bottom of the dessert glass, I sprinkled granola on top as if I was making a parfait. For each bite you will taste the light and silky mousse together with the crunchy granola. If a tall wine glass or mason jar is used I will put several layers to make it even more appealing.
慕絲以忌廉芝士和檸檬作主材料,味道清爽不會像芝士蛋糕般太膩。EC參考了芭菲的做法,不在杯底放餅碎而是在慕絲表面洒上燕麥片(granola),每一啖都可品嚐到質地輕盈幼滑的慕絲及脆脆的燕麥片。如果用高身一些的酒杯或帶蓋玻璃瓶子更可多做幾層增強視覺效果呢!

The lemon flavor doesn’t really come from its juice but mainly the zest. To maximize the flavor of citrus zest, I always rub the zest into sugar. The rubbing helps to release all of the essential oils within the zest. The zested sugar will be remarkably fragrant after absorbing these oils. The mousse will be infused with a fresh lemon scent too. I used this method on all my baked goods and desserts containing citrus zest (read about my blog posts Homemade Lemon Curd and Orange Chia Chiffon Cake, just to name a few). It always works like magic. If possible, try to get organic lemons. Otherwise the lemons have to be scrubbed and cleaned thoroughly in order to remove all the toxic substances and pesticides on the surface.
檸檬的味道及氣味其實不是主要來自檸檬汁而是檸檬皮。若要充分發揮檸檬的香氣,必須把檸檬皮捽進糖中。糖與檸檬皮互相摩擦時能釋出檸檬的精油(essential oil ),糖完全吸收精油後會變得香氣撲鼻,慕絲自然也會特別香。EC弄其他含有柑橘類水果皮蓉的蛋糕或甜品也是用此法(例如自家製檸檬酱香橙奇異籽戚風蛋糕等)。檸檬最好使用有機的,否則要仔細的洗擦檸檬,避免把表面的農藥等有害物質吃進肚子裡去。

Directions 做法

Chill mixing bowl and the whisk attachment in the freezer for 10 minutes before you start.
鋼盆及打蛋器配件預先放冰箱十分鐘雪凍備用。

Wash the lemon thoroughly and pat dry. Zest (avoid any of the white pith as it tastes bitter) and then juice it. In a small bowl, rub sugar and lemon zest with fingertips until fragrant. The zested sugar will be fluffy and turn pale yellow. Set aside.
檸檬徹底洗擦乾淨後抹乾,刨下檸檬皮蓉後(不要刨到白色部份否則會苦)切半榨汁,把檸檬皮蓉及糖放小碗中,用指頭捽至發香,檸檬糖會變得蓬鬆及轉為淡黃色,備用。

Bloom gelatin by mixing it with milk (or water) in a small bowl then set aside for 5 minutes. Warm mixture in the microwave or sit the bowl in hot water until gelatin liquefies. Set aside.
小碗放魚膠粉和牛奶(或水)拌勻,靜置五分鐘至魚膠粉發漲,隔熱水坐溶或放微波爐叮溶備用。

With a food processor or blender, process cream cheese, zested sugar, milk and lemon juice until smooth then pour into a mixing bowl. For a silkier texture, strain mixture through a sieve. Stir in the gelatin mixture until incorporated.
忌廉芝士、牛奶、檸檬汁和檸檬糖放入攪拌機或食物處理器打滑後倒在鋼盆中(過篩一次可令口感更加幼滑),加入魚膠溶液充份拌匀備用。

In the chilled mixing bowl, beat whipping cream until thickened and soft peaks form. Fold whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture in two batches until homogeneous.
淡忌廉放在己雪凍的鋼盆中用電動打蛋器打至稠身及軟勾狀,分兩次加入芝士糊中用膠刮以切拌方法拌至顔色均一。

Evenly spoon (or pipe with a piping bag) cream cheese mixture into each serving glass Tap glasses on the countertop several times to remove any large air bubbles. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hour to set.
將芝士糊平均倒入小杯中(EC用唧袋),輕敲幾下釋出大氣泡,蓋好後放入雪櫃至少兩小時至凝固。

To serve, remove chilled cheesecake from the fridge. Sprinkle granola on top. Garnish with fresh fruit pieces and mint leaves.
從雪櫃取出,在表面洒上燕麥片,加上水果粒和薄荷葉作點綴即可享用。
