Mascarpone White Chocolate Mousse with Raspberry Lemon Sauce

2 large egg whites
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided use
8 ounces mascarpone cheese, room temperature
1 cup white chocolate chips, melted
1/2 a vanilla bean, seeds scraped out
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
6 ounces fresh raspberries
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on high speed, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.

In an additional large mixing bowl, using a mixer on high speed, beat cream and 1/4 cup sugar until stiff peaks form; fold egg whites into whipped cream.

In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat mascarpone, melted white chocolate, vanilla bean seeds and lemon zest until well combined and smooth; fold egg white-cream mixture into mascarpone mixture until just combined. Divide mousse into 8 ramekins. Cover and chill for one hour, or until ready to serve.

To make the raspberry sauce, combine remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, raspberries and lemon juice in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring frequently, and crushing berries with spoon; boil 2 minutes. Transfer raspberry sauce to a food processor, and puree until smooth. Strain sauce into a small bowl. Serve mousse with a drizzle of raspberry sauce.

Makes 8 servings

  8. YUM! And I LOVE the background. Is that called fuschia?

    It's so funny. When I was young(er), I used to rail against white chocolate. Now I LOVE it and white chocolate mousse is one of my most favorite things. And making it with mascarpone is kind of brilliant.

  16. White chocolate? It used to be illegal to sell it as "chocolate" in the US due to the fact that it is just vanilla-flavored cocao butter with some stabilizing fats thrown in. They used to have to call it "white confectionary bar" or something like that. I'm a regular chocolate mousse preferr-er I must admit.

    I have had some superior white chocolate mousses that while are not the dark delciousness I crave, have been quite good, so I would not be the least bit averse to trying this - especially when it's made with mascarpone. There isn't much you can make with mascarpone that's bad and it does go so well with raspberries.

  20. I love your blog and your passion for making and eating food.

    I love white chocolate but my favorite frozen yogurt flavor is Taro. Most people hate it but those who love it REALLY LOVE it. My yogurt store carries a dozen flavors at all times and I sample a lot of them but always just get Taro with granola.
