  • 3 Pc. Eggs
  • 2 tbsp Cane sugar
  • 2 tbsp Macadamia cream

  • 200 g Cream
  • 50 g Sugar

Chocolate cakes:

  • For the chocolate cakes, grease 5-6 tins with a little butter and place in the freezer.
  • Melt the dark chocolate together with the butter in a double boiler. Beat the eggs with a pinch of salt and the sugar until frothy.
  • Then whisk the melted chocolate butter underneath in a thin stream. Then sift the flour and cocoa powder into the mixture and fold in.
  • Just before baking, fill into the ice-cold molds and bake in the preheated oven at 225 ° C for about 10 minutes, so that the center is still liquid.
  • Carefully turn the cakes out of the mold.

Berry compote:

  • For the berry compote, put the mixed berries up to 100 g in a saucepan and bring to the boil with the scraped out vanilla and sugar.
  • Simmer for a few minutes over medium heat until a compote is formed. Season to taste with the lemon juice.
  • Now add the remaining berries and let the whole thing cool while stirring. Fill into suitable glasses and decorate with the mint.

Macadami partfait:

  • For the macadamia parafit, beat the eggs with the cane sugar for 5 minutes until frothy.
  • Add the macadamia cream and stir for another 2 minutes. Then whip the cream until stiff and fold into the mixture.
  • Put the sugar with 50 ml of water and the scraped-out vanilla in a saucepan and melt to caramel over low heat (you need a little patience here).
  • When the sugar mass is slightly brown, take it off the stove, add the nuts and stir briefly.
  • Place the nut mixture on a plate coated with vegetable oil and allow to cool. Then chop them a little smaller with a knife.
  • Place the parfait mixture in a loaf pan lined with foil, add the caramelized nuts and freeze in the freezer overnight.
  • To serve, turn the parfait out of the mold and cut into slices.
