Ingredients to make Semifreddo

  • Pitted Fresh Cherries (for garnishing)
  • Melted White Chocolate 1/8 Cup
  • Hazelnut (Chopped) 1/4 Cup
  • Rum 1 and 1/2 Tbsp
  • White Chocolate Chips 1 Cup
  • egg Whites 3
  • Heavy Whipping cream 1 and 1/2 Cups
  • Castor sugar 1/3 Cup
  • Vanilla Essence 2 Tsp
  • egg Yolks 4
  • Pitted Cherries 250 gms

How to make Semifreddo

  1. Roughly chop the cherries and pat them dry with a paper towel. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl beat in the heavy whipped cream with an electric mixer till soft peaks form. Refrigerate.
  3. In another big bowl beat egg yolks, vanilla essence and sugar for 2-3 minutes or until thick or creamy.
  4. Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff peaks form.
  5. Gently fold in the whipped cream, chopped cherries, melted chocolate, rum, white chocolate chips and hazelnuts into the egg yolk mixture.
  6. Fold egg whites in three batches into the above cream mixture.
  7. Grease a loaf pan. Line the base and sides with parchment paper.
  8. Spoon the cream mixture into the prepared loaf pan. Cover with a cling film and freeze overnight or until firm.
  9. Turn onto a plate. Garnish with cherries or as desired.

My Tip:

Ensure the cling film sticks onto the surface of the semifreddo mixture and there are no gaps. If there is a gap then it will lead to formation of ice crystals.
