Semifreddo is the ideal make ahead dessert, the basic recipe here can be garnished with different toppings of your choice, but is delicious with the summers most fresh strawberries.

Double line a 1.5 litre capacity loaf tin with cling film.
Place the egg, egg yolks, vanilla extract and sugar in a heatproof bowl and set it over a saucepan of simmering water.
Using a hand-held electric whisk, beat for about 8 minutes until the mixture is thick and pale. Remove from the heat and set aside.
In a separate large bowl, whip the double cream until it is stiff . Fold in the pale egg mixture until combined.
Pour half the mix into the prepared loaf tin.
Blitz the strawberries and icing sugar in a blender until smooth and then ripple half the puree through the creamy mixture.
Cover with cling film and place in the freezer to set for 6 hours or overnight.
To serve, turn the semifreddo out onto a serving platter and carefully remove the cling film. Drizzle with the jam and garnish with the prepared strawberries and serve in generous slices.
