This takes me back to the days when happiness came from the corner shop – everything here at butter plus cream is a bit more complicated now!!! But we still pleasure that we get from the old cream chargers…
This nougat is really similar to regular nougat, but is frozen instead. The nuts add a crunchy taste and the dried fruits make the texture soft, so the combination of the tastes is truly amazing. You will surely not regret making this dessert! Ans this will stick to your mouth like dog-shit to a child’s shoes – that is what we are looking for!!!
– the whites of two eggs;
– half a tablespoon of salt;
– 60 milliliters of honey;
– 125 milliliters of blanched almonds, which are chopped after toasting.
-125 milliliters of whole pistachios;
– 3 tablespoons of golden raisins;
-60 milliliters of dried cranberries;
– 6 chopped dried apricots;
– 1 liter of vanilla ice-cream, which is a bit soft.
Use plastic wrap for the lining of a loaf pan. Set the loaf pan aside for later.
Take a big bowl and mix the whites of the eggs and the salt. Use an electric mixer to beat them and stop when stiff peaks start forming.
Put the honey in a saucepan and boil it for half a minute. Add the honey to the whites from the eggs and whisk rapidly while doing it. Beat the mixture for another minute with the mixer after adding the honey.
Put the dried fruits, the almonds and the pistachios in the egg/honey mixture and mix everything gently. Put in the ice-cream too and continue beating the mixture with the electric mixer. Take the pan you have prepared before the cooking and pour the mixture you have created in it. Make the top of it smooth and put it in the fridge for no less than four hours to freeze well.
If this doesn’t make your teeth fall out, then you are doing it all wrong – so get the cream chargers out and start again….
Take out the ready nougat, remove the wrap and then slice it into pieces to be served. Use fruit sauce of your preference for the servings.
You can make this nougat several days before serving it and it will not spoil!
