Cherry Semifreddo

Cherry Semifreddo

This is my first time trying a semifreddo recipe. Searching for the perfect one I ran over Donna Hay's recipe which seemed very easy to do. I used her basic recipe and added some cherries as they are in season now to add a delicious summer flavor and so created my cherry semifreddo recipe. 

I must say the cherry semifreddo is amazing, very creamy and you don't need to have an ice cream maker to create this amazing dessert. What I would change next time would be to roughly cut the cherries in smaller pieces, so they could be more easily cut and served. 
This dessert is refreshing and quite elegant, perfect to end a dinner or just serve it in a hot summer day.

  • Makes about 6-8 servings
  • 1 pound (400 g ) fresh cherries, pitted
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks, extra
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups (500ml) heavy cream
  1. Place the eggs, extra yolks, vanilla and sugar in a heatproof bowl. Place over a saucepan of simmering water and, using a hand-held electric mixer, beat for 6–8 minutes or until thick and pale. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
  2. Whisk the cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold through the egg mixture until well combined. 
  3. Line a 2 litre-capacity  loaf tin with plastic wrap. Put the pitted cherries down into the bottom of the loaf tin, and pour the cream mixture on top. Freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight. 
  4. When ready to serve invert onto a plate, remove the plastic wrap and cut into slices.
