Deliciously simple: Iced passionfruit parfait
Ingredients (enough for 6 people):
200 ml pure (whipping)cream.
125 gms castor sugar
4 medium size passionfruit or 3 large ones.
Separate the eggs into yolks and whites. Beat the egg yolks, add half the sugar, beat till frothy. Separately, beat the cream, add the other half of the sugar, beat till thick. Cut the passionfruit in half, scoop out all the pulp and juice, mix in the cream till well combined. Beat the egg whites separately until standing in stiff peaks. Now fold the cream into the egg yolk mixture, and then fold in the egg whites after that. Mix till well combined. Transfer mixture to a freezer container, freeze several hours(at least 8). Serve as is or, if you want to dress it up, topped with more whipped cream and maybe meringues on the side!
Iced parfaits can be made in lots of delicious flavours, but this one's my favourite!
