Honey Nougat

We bought our house after looking though it for 5 minutes – it was only the 2nd one we’d looked at. We buy brand new cars without test driving them. Last year we flew to Fiji on Christmas day with 2 weeks notice. We’re impulsive like that.

With slightly less financial investment, this nougat popped up on my newsfeed (Thanks Recipe Community!) this weekend and within 5 minutes my Theromix was purring and cooking away for me. It’s not my original recipe but I am more than happy to give credit where credit is due cos this one… is a winner! Cheap and readily available ingredients, tick.  Ridiculously easy to make, tick. It’s technically sugar free but of course all that honey is really high in fructose so don’t be going crazy hoofing the stuff down because you will find yourself facedown in a sugar coma within 30 minutes. Consider yourself warned…

Those are my teeth marks...

I personalised my nougat with toasted coconut, almonds and chopped up raw cacao paste.

  • 1 Egg White (Yep, just 1!)
  • 400g Honey (I’m guessing you could try use rice syrup, coconut nectar or maple syrup)
  • Nut mixture: 200g of chopped nuts, dried fruit, toasted coconut, additional 50g of chopped cacao paste to make slightly softer nougat
  • 2 Sheets of rice paper (you can get this from a speciality baking shop or asian grocer)

All piled up

  1. Line a lamington tin with 1 sheet of rice paper, set aside
  2. Mix egg white for 2 seconds on speed 2
  3. Add honey, Insert butterfly and cook on 100C, for 60mins on speed 2
  4. Remove butterfly, add nut mixture and mix through with a spatula.
  5. Pour into lamington tray, spread evenly over the rice paper and cover with the 2nd sheet of rice paper pressing down to even out the thickness
  6. Refridgerate for 30 minutes, cut into squares being careful to trim the edges – you know, for taste test purposes…

Honey nougat deliciousness!

  1. Yes, I always like to trim things down for “taste testing” purposes.
