This unbeatable combination of port wine, chocolate and cream came into existence in 1906. That was the year when King Haakon and his queen were on their benediction tour through Norway. In Haugesund, a freshly prepared dessert was waiting for the royal couple  – and this is how this dessert got its lovely name.

The mousse can also be made with lemons. Use 1/2 – 3/4 dl lemon juice, grated lemon peel and a bit more sugar than in the orange mousse. Or make it with pineapple juice. Adjust the amount of sugar according to the sweetness of the fruit and add a little lemon juice.

I have to confess that I have never been particularly excited about dessert gellies. Even as  a child, I had to drown them in custard sauce to manage to get them down. But mousse on the other hand, now we’re talking dessert – Ted

Oranges were quite popular in desserts when I was a kid and my mother often made a simple but very good dessert called orange cream. It was simply whipped cream tasted with orange juice and mixed with thin slices of oranges like the dessert in this recipe and she topped it with grated chocolate. I loved that dessert – Ted
