- Place eggs, yolks and sugar in a heatproof bowl over a pot with simmering water that doesn’t touch the bowl. Beat with electric beater until thick, light in colour and volume has doubled (about 5 mins).
- Remove bowl from heat and continue beating until mixture has cooled. Whip cream to soft peaks in a second bowl. Gently fold cream into egg mixture with Christmas cake until well combined. Divide semifreddo between prepared tins, cover and freeze overnight.
