Honey and Marsala Semifreddo

Semifreddo, which in Italian means semi-frozen is a creamy and smooth semi-frozen dessert. If you don’t have an ice cream machine, then semifreddo is your only way of having smooth frozen desserts right in your home. And after that you will only want to make semifreddo, because its super creamy, velvety smooth and completely melt in the mouth.

If you are not okay with adding the liquor in your dessert you can completely avoid it, but I strongly recommend adding this Italian wine which will enhance the flavour and add richness to the taste.

Ingredients:
3 egg yolks and 2 whole eggs
250 ml of heavy whipping cream
½ cup organic honey
¼ cup of marsala wine
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup of granulated white sugar

Method:
Take the eggs and the egg yolk in an oven proof bowl and mix in the sugar, vanilla extract and marsala wine.
Take a saucepan and fill ¼ th of the saucepan with water.
Place the saucepan on medium flame and let the water come to a boil. Put the flame on sim and place the bowl with eggs over the saucepan.
Take a wire whisk / electric blender and start whisking until the eggs become pale and thick and almost triple in size. It is very important to slowly cook the eggs and it might take around 15 minutes to complete this process. In the end you will have a creamy pale yellow whipped egg yolks and there will be no liquid substance.
In a separate bowl whisk the whipping cream until you have stiff peaks.
Add honey and mix in.
Add the whipped eggs to the whipping cream in small parts and slowly mix in with the help of a wire whisk.
Taste and if required add more marsala and vanilla extract.
Pour this mixture in a loaf pan or in individual cups and cover with a plastic film.

Freeze overnight and serve when required.
