Picture of Semifreddo With Berries and Honey

Semifreddo means half - cold in Italian. It is made up of three main ingredients, eggs, sugar and cream and has endless variations. In addition to the ingredients mentioned above I used vanilla and a pinch of salt, and changed sugar to honey to give it a twist. Since it was meant to be a festive summer cake, I made berry coulis that I put inside the semifreddo as well as on the top of it. If you want to keep it simple, you may just top it with fresh fruits.

In most recipes, semifreddo is made using raw eggs, but I do not really like eating raw eggs myself, due to food safety reasons. In this recipe, however, eggs are heat-treated and absolutely safe.
