On Sunday morning my wife and I like to treat ourselves well. This recipe is perfect if you want to wake up with a smile; just prepare the chocolate fudge muffin the day before and warm them a few minutes in the oven (do not skip this step, otherwise they will not retain their characteristic softness). They are delicious on their own, but if you want my advice, garnish at the last minute with whipped cream, blueberries and raspberries. Of course they will make a perfect snack or dessert, not to mention a tasty late night treat!
Today I’d like to propose a family dessert. A crunchy lemon flavored semifreddo prepared by my mother, who in turn received the recipe from a dear friend (thanks Anna for having started all of this!). I enjoy these stories because at each step something is modified, and in the end, the recipe takes on a life of its own. You can serve it as a “tile” directly from the loaf pan, or measure doses with an ice cream spoon, adding additional crumbled meringues at the end.
