4 tablespoons light rum
1 tablespoon powdered gelatin
1 cup freshly-made strong medium roasted coffee
3 large egg yolks
6 tablespoons superfine sugar
1 cup heavy cream
3 large egg whites

Preparation / Directions:

Sprinkle gelatin over rum and leave until the powder has absorbed the liquid, about five minutes. Strain the hot coffee, add the soaked gelatin and stir until completely dissolved. Beat the yolks until thick and pale, beat in the sugar until the mixture has increased in volume and is even paler. Gradually beat in the hot liquid and leave to cool. When the mixture has started to thicken, whip the cream until it almost holds its shape then fold in carefully. Whip the egg whites to soft peak and fold in as well. Pour mixture into a 5 cup mold, or individual dishes, and leave in cold place to set. Alternatively, use a smaller, 3 cup with a paper collar tied firmly around its top. After the mousse has set, the collar can be removed, leaving the mixture standing proud of the dish, like a risen souffle. Grated chocolate and/or whipped cream can be used to decorate the mousse. Instead of rum, cognac or kirsch can be used for flavoring.
