6 egg yolks
110g granulated sugar, plus 55g
240ml double cream
2 tsps cinnamon
4 egg whites
2 tbsps amaretto liqueur
190g mixed berries (blackberries, raspberries and blueberries)
1 lemon, juiced
1 small block dark chocolate, for garnish
1) Prepare a double boiler or fit a heatproof bowl over a small saucepan of simmering water. In the bowl, combine the egg yolks and 110g of sugar, and whisk until frothy. Transfer the bowl immediately to an ice bath, stirring occasionally, until cool.

2) In a separate bowl, whip the double cream to medium peaks. Fold the whipped cream into the cooled egg yolk mixture and stir in the cinnamon.  

3) In a separate mixing bowl, whip the egg whites and amaretto liqueur until soft peaks form and fold that into the egg yolk-cream mixture. Pour the mixture into a loaf pan or small baking dish and freeze until soft-frozen, about 4 hours.

4) Whilst semifreddo freezes, toss berries with the lemon juice and remaining 55g of sugar in a small bowl. Lightly mash with a fork to crush some of the berries.

5) To serve, spoon the semifreddo into individual dishes, top with some of the berry mixture and garnish with shaved chocolate.
