lemon mousse cake
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature, cut into tablespoons, plus more for pans, 3 cups cake flour (not self-rising), plus more for pans, 1½ teaspoons unflavored gelatin (from a 1/4-ounce package), 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest plus 3/4 cup fresh juice (from 5 to 6 lemons), 1 stick (1/2 cup) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, 1 cup heavy cream, whipped to stiff peaks. All topped off with lemon fool (whipped cream with lemon curd folded in). Double cream is scarce where I am. Fold the whites into the base in 2 parts, folding just until there are no streaks of egg whites. Spread 1 heaping cup of filling to the edges with an offset spatula.
it because a firm gel. Thank you so much for the feedback, Sheila.
These were a real hit. You must be sure to keep stirring across the entire bottom and corners of the pot so the custard does not have a chance to stick.
I’ve made this cake using lemon zest and juice in the syrup to replace the limoncello. I’d really like to try, but wasn’t sure.
Making the lemon mouse cake. Some markets sell pasteurized eggs still in the shell, those can also be used for this recipe. How generous are you with brushing on the syrup?
Either heat on in a small saucepan until melted or give 15 second zaps in the microwave (on medium heat). Put a fine mesh sieve over the bowl and keep it near the stove. Here, they’re whipped up into a light-as-air cake. Did you use the syrup on the layers?
Not sure how much flavoring,limoncello, and zest to use in the Italian buttercream since you said add to taste??? Continue piping, rotating cake, to cover completely. When I posted a sneaky shot of this cake before the birthday girl got to see it, so many people requested the recipe, I’ve pushed back my recipe schedule to bring it to you today.
Hi Will, you can make the mousse ahead of time.
Refrigerate the cake for at least an hour to set the buttercream and allow the mousse time to gel. If it’s a very small, 1 tier cake, the time it’s left out should be shorter. Top with the 4th layer, brush with syrup. Place second cake layer over mousse, cut side down, and press to surround cake with mousse.
Thank you for sharing your recipe!
Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl. I think your tips and advice are brilliant and you are very good to reply to everyone! My. Slowly add remaining half of milk mixture, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. I find the best way to work ahead is to have all the components made; the cake, the curd, the syrup, the icing.
Iâm taking it to a wedding rehearsal dinner tomorrow evening.
Sure, coconut would taste great in this cake. Do you know if this will freeze well? Ooo – imagine making this for your wedding cake?! If you love this recipe as much as I do, I’d really appreciate a 5-star review. I’ve been taking polls on things like which filling I should make for this cake and which recipe they want me to make next, as well as sharing behind the scenes sneaky peeks that only appear in the group! Regarding flavoring the Italian buttercream, do you replace some or all of the water in the sugar syrup with limoncello or add in at end?
The cake is fluffy and delicious, topped with a light and airy white chocolate lemon mousse.
Is it possible to finish it with a mirror glaze?
Can I use heavy whipping cream instead and maybe add a bit more gelatin to compensate?
My son and his family have come and gone.
Fold 1/3 of the the cream into the lemon curd until no lumps of curd remain.
I’m going to try the attempt to make this cake.
Bake until the center of the cake springs back when lightly pressed or a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean, about 25-30 minutes.
Am making this at the weekend. I don’t drink alcohol but would like to try the Limoncello if possible. If you bake 4 thinner layers just keep an eye on them in the oven since they will bake faster.
Allow to cool whilst you prep the rest. So, it fell a bit in the middle. Whisk briefly to combine and set aside to bloom. The perfect dessert with only 2 TBSp of flour! Set the cake into the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to set the buttercream "dams" and the mousse.
Use a piping bag fitted with a star tip to pipe a border around the top of the cake.
This post has lots of great information about baking science and how to perfect any recipe. But I honestly haven’t tried it. Line two 8" round cake pans with a circle of parchment paper or butter and flour the bottom of the pans only, not the sides.
Thoroughly whisk together the sugar and eggs in a medium saucepan. Start by lining three 8inch round cake tins (sandwich or deep - use whichever you have) with silicone liners or baking parchment and preheating the oven to 170˚C. I’ve been making this recipe for more than 10 years and it always rises for me. I know it will disappear fast! Set aside a 1/2 cup of the lemon curd and scoop the rest onto the layer. You can certainly use the mousse with your favorite cake recipe. But would you use dark chocolate ganache or white chocolate ganache? It’s a great place to ask recipe questions and get answers from a great group of bakers. And this cake is truly luscious!
Tip - be brave and go fast or the heat of your hand will start to melt it and make it harder to pipe.
Increase the speed to medium and mix about 3 minutes until the batter lightens in texture. For the last 5 years I’dÂ say almost half the wedding cakes I sold had two different flavors in the cake; half the servings with the cookie flavor, and the other half with Luscious Lemon Mousse Cake. The simple syrup can be stored in the refrigerator for several weeks.Without the added liquor, this syrup is also great for sweetening iced tea or lemonade. White Chocolate Lemon Mousse: Melt the chocolate using a double-boiler or microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each, until melted. Wrap the cooled layers and chill until firm (I like to bake the cake a day ahead).
