A very easy semifreddo dessert

This dessert is easy to assemble and takes very little time. You will need two pieces of sponge cake/trifle sponge. Place one piece in a container and drizzle with your favourite booze. I used Frangelico because I needed to finish the bottle, it has a lovely hazelnut flavour.

Next, mix some vanilla ice cream with some preserved pitted cherries.

Spread the (now pink) ice cream over the sponge cake and cover with the second layer or sponge.

Drizzle some more booze on top, and cover. Place in the freezer for at least two hours. The sponge won't freeze, and it will cut beautifully!

Cut and serve. It really tastes quite professional, so don't tell anyone how easy it is!!! :-)

  8. I really must give this a try. It is a beautiful dessert. How much Frangelico did you have to use to keep the cake layers from freezing? I hope you have had a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

  9. I made raspberry semifreddo myself days ago and still sits in the freezer. Didn't use sponge cake though. Would love to try it out one day. Looks gorgeous!
