I was in Johannesburg in January, spending time with my nieces and my sister before they went back to Sydney. Sasha, who is 6, is a natural cook and during our time together we made scrambled eggs, omelettes and cupcakes. She wanted to make ice cream and as my mom does not have an ice cream churner, I chose to make semifreddo. Semifreddo means semi frozen and for an ice cream, this is the perfect recipe for everyone. In my mind nothing beats a good chocolate ice cream which is why I chose this flavour to make for the semifreddo. You can however add any flavouring you want so let your imagination guide you. What makes this recipe so easy for anyone to make is that there is no custard making process. If you don’t have an ice cream churner there is no excuse not to make this semifreddo. This dessert reminds me of Italy. It is the one treat I allow myself every single day.
do you have an ice cream churner?
- 70 g fructose
- 4 eggs separated
- 10 mls vanilla extract
- 500 mls cream
- 50 g cocoa
- Place the fructose, egg yolks and vanilla extract into a bowl and beat until ribbon stage
- Whisk the egg whites in another bowl until firm peak stage
- In a third bowl whisk the cream and the cocoa until thick
- Fold the egg whites into the cream with a metal spoon until combined
- Fold in the egg yolk mixture until combined
- Place into a container and freeze until ready to serve

I do, Tandy; and I have used it precisely twice. We haven’t had ice cream weather in Britain in five years…here’s to a long hot Summer this year!
I hope you get a decent summer this year and next year as well. We are heading to Wales in 2014 🙂
Very nice idea. I always forget how delicious and simple semifreddo is to make. I think I’ll wait for summer:)
It is so good, and thankfully we have hot days in winter as my freezer is full of various flavours 🙂
I have one but I often don’t have room for the bowl to go in the freezer so I like these sorts of recipes! 🙂
I solved that problem by buying a new freezer but because I needed space for what we catch in the sea 😉
I’ve always wanted to make semifreddo. Yours sounds wonderful!
I’m sure you can come up with a good flavour – say peanut butter?
Great! An ice cream dessert that doesn’t require an ice cream maker! I will be trying this, thanks Tandy!
My pleasure Erica, enjoy xox
I do have an ice-cream machine but just a cheap one that has to be stored in the freezer. I long for one of those expensive ones with a freezer unit. One day, maybe!
That would be nice but I have a drawer in my freezer dedicated for my churner bowl 🙂
I do have an ice cream maker but it’s back in Spain so a recipe like this is perfect for right now. And even though there are snow flurries outside my window, as Big Man says…”it’s never too cold for ice cream”!
I agree with Big Man, ice cream is an everyday treat 🙂
I’ve never made a semifreddo (and I like it!), I do not have an ice cream maker, so no excuse. I bet that it tastes fantastic with a good, creamy expresso.
Ooh Rita, that sounds very good 🙂
I don’t have an ice cream maker. Your recipe does sounds really delicious and easy to make.
it is really easy 🙂
Yum! Semifreddo is great!
I am addicted to ice cream at the moment 🙂
Addicted to Ice Cream—love that addiction
