SemiFreddo means semi-cold, a partially frozen Italian dessert. It is soft, smooth and silky semi-melting ice cream without the usual hard texture. This rich honey cream dessert melts in your mouth as you enjoy a sweet treat fit for the gods.
This 2:43 minute video by GlutenFree Television (free glutine.tv) shows you the super easy recipe prep and how to present it so it looks like it was created by a professional chef.
Only three ingredients are needed:
300 g / 10.5 ounces of cream
200 g / 7 ounces of honey
Preparation steps are quick and easy:
Pour the honey into a saucepan and heat it until it boils.
Whip the cream about 80% of the way to a texture like soft shaving cream.
Set these aside and beat the eggs, whipping with the eggbeater until light and fluffy.
Once the mixture is nice and light start to add the honey while continuing to whip with an electric mixture. It will thicken and increase in volume until it is frothy. Do not add sugar – the honey is a sufficient sweetener.
Add the cream that was previously whipped and fold it in with a spatula from the top slowly towards the bottom of the bowl.
Once all the ingredients are blended, pour the mixture into 4-6 spaces in a silicone mold and let it rest about 8 hours in the freezer. Semifreddo has a very soft consistency so these will "pop" out of the mold cups very easily by applying pressure to the bottom of the mold.
Melt some chocolate in a bain-marie saucepan if you’d like to drizzle it on top to add a little color.
You can also decorate with some small chopped honey sweets and a few mint leaves for a burst of color..
This Italian specialty honey mousse is now ready to be served.
