Coffee Mania ! ! !

 Coffee is a great beverage which has been used over the years. It also has a fair share of romanticism attached to it. Winter is known to be the best season to have coffee flavour drinks. This very thought inspired me to blog on coffee......this doesn’t mean that I will explore the recipe of traditional coffee making but will surely make you feel the flavour of coffee in the form of  dessert known as coffee mousse.

You can relish this recipe after any meal of your day. But the most important part of this recipe is the usage of good quality of coffee powder (Nescafé/ Bru).


Coffee Mousse:

Ingredients :

Egg yolk  -        1no.

Grain sugar  -  30gm

Milk    -             150ml

Gelatine    -      8gm

Coffee liquid  - 1 tbsp.

Whipped cream 150ml

Vanilla essence  -  few drop (optional)

Consistency of custard.
Soaked gelatine.











1.      Soak the gelatine in the cold water.

2.      Prepare the hot basic custard by boiling milk and sugar together and gradually adding egg in boiling milk.

3.      Then add soaked gelatine and coffee liquid to the custard.

4.      Strain the mixture using a fine strainer.

5.      Put the mixture on the ice water bath and make the mixture into semi-thick consistency.

6.      Later add the whipped cream and fold the entire mixture with the help of the spatula.

7.      Pour the mixture into proper moulds and set in the refrigerator for 1-2 hrs.

8.      Garnish it with the swirl of cream and sprinkle the cocoa powder on top of it.




Hope you have enjoyed the journey of this recipe with the exotic presentation of the mousse....
