Delicious no churn egg liqueur parfait with pleasant, not intrusive, egg liqueur taste. A perfect cold dessert for any occasion, which can be prepared in a few steps, without using an ice cream maker.
If you're an eggnog fan like me, you'll love this egg liqueur parfait recipe!
We made this eggnog parfait for the first time as a dessert for our 2018 Christmas menu, and it was an absolute hit!
But this ice cold dessert is also highly recommended for hot summer days!
And to kick it up a notch, you can also make the eggnog parfait with homemade eggnog. This recipe is also wonderfully simple!
- Confectioners' Sugar
- Homemade Egg liqueur (or store bought Egg Liqueur)
- Heavy Whipping Cream (it is very important not to use low-fat cream)
- Whipped Cream and Chocolate Sprinkles for garnishing

To start, separate egg whites and yolks into individual bowls. Then mix the three yolks and the sugar for about 10 minutes with the mixer until forming a foamy mass.
In the meantime, beat the two egg whites and the whipped cream separately.
Once this is accomplished, mix the egg liqueur, whipped cream, and the beaten egg whites into the yolk mixture.
Mix the yolks and the confectioners' sugar.
Add the egg liqueur and whipped cream to the mix.
Line the loaf pan with plastic wrap and fill it with the parfait mixture.
Cover the loaf pan with cling film.
Fill the loaf pan with the parfait mixture.
Smooth out the parfait.
Cover it with the remaining cling film.
Now we have to wait at least 4 hours. That's the amount of time your parfait needs to freeze well in the freezer.
Really easy, isn't it?

Serving the Egg Liqueur Parfait
When it's time to serve this delicious dessert, simply lift the parfait out of the loaf pan using plastic wrap. Carefully slice off finger-thick layers, dice, and place in a dessert bowl.
To garnish, top with a dollop of whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles, and you're ready to spoon!
Instead of the chocolate sprinkles, sprinkle a little cinnamon over your parfait before serving.
This seasoning makes the parfait taste even more Christmassy and looks pretty.
If you want it to be a summer dessert, fresh strawberries are a great choice for garnish.

In France, parfait refers to a frozen dessert made from a base of sugar syrup, egg, and cream. A parfait contains enough fat, sugar, alcohol, and to a lesser extent, air, to allow it to be made by stirring infrequently while freezing, making it possible to create in a home kitchen without specialist equipment. The fat, sugar, alcohol or air interferes with the formation of water crystals, which would otherwise give the ice cream an uncomfortable texture in the mouth. The formation of ice crystals is managed in the making of regular ice cream by agitating the ice cream constantly while it freezes or chemically by adding glycerol. Neither should be necessary when making a high-quality parfait.
Yes, of course! If you would like to try other parfait variations with different types of liqueur, replace the advocaat with a different cream liqueur. Works with any cream liqueurs (coffee, vanilla, chocolate, fruit,..)
