Nectarine and Honey Semifreddo

Servings 8


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 300 ml thickened cream (whipping cream)
  • 6 ripe nectarines; pitted

To garnish

  • nectarines, , cherries, pomegranate & passionfruit ,or top with whatever you like


  • Add the nectarines to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. A few chunks will be fine.
  • Line a loaf tin with plastic wrap allowing the sides to overhang. Add the eggs, yolks and honey to a bowl of an electric mixer. Whisk on high speed until it is thick and creamy. It should have almost doubled in size.
  • Now place the bowl over a pot of simmering water and whisk for 5 minutes or until it has doubled in size. Add the nectarines and whisk to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, add the cream and whisk until soft peeks form. Add half to the nectarine mixture and fold through. Add the remaining cream and fold through ever so gently.
  • Pour into the tin and freeze overnight.
  • To serve turn out onto a serving plate and top with fresh fruit.


I don't own an electric hand-mixer so I whisked by hand over the simmering water. You could use a hand mixer if you have one.
