Frozen nougat is a delicious summer dessert. Light yet full of flavor, it pairs perfectly with summer berries. A berry sauce made by combining berry jam with fresh berries, adds a punch of flavor.
For the recipe:
- 120 grams egg whites
- 80 grams sugar
- 150 grams of honey
- 240 grams of heavy cream
- 80 grams of nougatine
- 40 grams of rum soaked raisins (made ahead of time)
Make whipped cream with the heavy cream. Set aside.
Bring the honey to a boil.
In the meantime, whip the egg whites and sugar together until stiff peaks.
Pour boiling honey over whipping egg whites.
With a spatula, fold in the whip cream, then the rum soaked raisins and the nougatine.
(note: make nougatine by melting 40 grams of sugar in a saucepan until golden brown and adding 40 grams of slivered almonds. Pour onto a sheet pan fitted with parchment and spread evenly to cool. Once cooled, break into small pieces. )
Pour the mixture into a mold of your choosing and freeze overnight.
Serve on top of berries and berry sauce (note: berry sauce: mix of berries and berry jam, heated and strained).
