- 2/3 cup of maple syrup (preferably dark syrup for its robust flavour)
- 4 egg yolks
- 1/4 cup Sortilège*, white wine or apple juice
- 1/3 cup whipped cream
- 2 cups fruit of your choice (strawberries, raspberries, pears, nectarines, etc. )
- 2 tablespoons grated maple sugar
- In a bowl mix the egg yolks, the syrup and the Sortilège.
- Place the bowl in the upper section of a double-boiler. The bottom of the bowl should not touch the water in the lower section of the double-boiler. Heat the mixture on low heat while whisking, until a creamy mousse is obtained. Remove from the heat and set aside.
- Whip the cream and incorporate into the egg yolks. Set aside.
- Preheat the oven to broil.
- Place the fruit in the molds or ramekins.
- Cover the fruit with the maple mousse and sprinkle with maple sugar.
- Place under broil until light brown.
* Sortilège (a Québécois liquor made with whiskey and maple syrup).** Avoid water from boiling in double-boiler so as not to coagulate the egg yolks. The Maple mousse may also be served in dessert dishes, decorated with fresh fruit.
