Cooking dish: 15 cm pan or 6 ramekins
vegetable oil spray, to grease the pan or the ramekins
2 eggs size large
1/4 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup sugar 110 g
1 pinch salt 0.4 g
3/4 cup whipping cream 35% 190 mL
6 serving(s) Cranberry Sauce (Recipe)
Before you start
A food processor or a mixer and a blender will make things easier for this recipe.
You may use either individual ramekins or a single large springform pan.
Prepare the lemon mousse
Lightly oil the bottom and sides of a large spring formpan or of individual ramekins.
Separate the egg whites from the yolks and put them in 2 separate bowls. Combine the egg yolks with the lemon juice and about ¼ of the sugar. Set aside.
In the other bowl, beat the egg whites using an electric mixer until foamy, then add the salt and continue to beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add the remaining sugar, beating until the egg whites are glossy and stand in stiff peaks, about 7-8 min. Set aside.
Pour the cream in a third bowl, then using the electric mixer, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream and egg whites into the yolk mixture using a spatula.
Carefully spoon the mixture into the pan or distribute it into the ramekins. Cover with foil and freeze at least 8 hours if using the pan, or 2-3 hours for the ramekins.
Unmould and garnish with the cranberry sauce
Just before serving, remove the frozen mousse from the springform pan and place it on a serving plate. If you are using ramekins, turn them upside-down onto individual serving plates. To make ramekin unmoulding easier, pour about 2 cm of hot water in a large bowl, then immerse the bottom of the ramekins in the water for about 1 min.
Spoon the sauce over the individual servings then serve.

Standing 1 h
2 cups cranberries, fresh or frozen 200 g
1/2 cup water 125 mL
1/2 cup sugar 110 g
2 tsp cornstarch 5 g
In a saucepan, stir together the cranberries, water, and sugar. Bring to a boil, with constant stirring. When the sugar is fully dissolved, add the cornstarch through a sieve, in order to avoid lumps. Reduce the heat to 'low' and continue to cook 6-7 min until the berries burst. Chill 1 h in the refrigerator before serving.
