Coffee and whipped ricotta mousse recipe

zaphfrans

I add a dash of Marsala because I use it in my tiramisu, so I always have it hanging about, and its woodiness works brilliantly with coffee. You can add rum or brandy or amaretto as you see fit. I like to serve it in little glass bowls with a light dusting of toasted hazelnut and dark chocolate on the top.

Prep time: 10 minutes, plus 2 hours chilling 

SERVES

INGREDIENTS

  • 150ml double cream
  • 250g ricotta
  • 3 tbsp icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp strong espresso coffee

Even in his old age, my great-grandfather Edwin was a bundle of energy. He was healthier than average and lived to be 99.
