A very easy semifreddo dessert for Sweet New Zealand



Because I am traveling in South America, I don't have an oven and I have very little time for cooking, but I really wanted to take part to Sweet New Zealand. So I am recycling an old recipe that never fails to impress, specially because it 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. Other suggestions: Amaretto, Cointreau, Grand Marnier, rum....




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!!! :-)






This recipe is for Sweet New Zealand, this month of April hosted by Monica of Delissimon. 

Please send me a message if you would like to host a month.
