Method

  1. Line a 26cm cake ring with clingfilm, allowing a 5cm overhang. Put half the white chocolate in a small saucepan and melt gently over a low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly but not set. Chop the remaining chocolate into small chunks; set aside.
  2. Place the chopped strawberries in a bowl and mash slightly with a fork. Put the cream, condensed milk and vanilla in a large bowl and, using an electric whisk, beat for 4-5 mins until soft peaks form. Be careful not to overbeat. Stir through the cooled melted chocolate and the yogurt. Using a large spoon, fold in the chopped white chocolate, mashed strawberries and meringue. Pour into the lined cake ring.
  3. Bring the overhanging clingfilm over the mixture to cover the semifreddo, then freeze for 8 hrs, or overnight.
  4. About 30 mins before serving, reserve 5 large strawberry halves and toss the remaining fruit with 100ml elderflower cordial; set aside for 30 mins. Blitz the reserved strawberry halves and remaining cordial to make a drizzle.
  5. Turn the semifreddo out onto a board; peel away the clingfilm. Top with the elderflower strawberry halves and the drizzle. Serve in slices.
