Ingredients

Body of Nougat
  • 1 egg white
  • 400 g honey
Contents of Nougat
  • 200 g nuts of your choice, Pistachio, almond, macadamia etc all work well
  • 50 g white cooking chocolate, optional to make it more chewy
  • 2 to 4 piece confectionary rice paper
5

Recipe's preparation

  1.  

     

    Step 1 - 1 egg white – 2 sec, speed 2,

    Step 2 - Add 400 grams honey, then put butterfly in, 60 mins, 100 degrees, Speed 2, leave MC off!

    Step 3 -Take butterfly out, add in 200 grams of nut mixture*, stir in with spatula

    Step 4 – On a flat tray, place a piece of baking paper, then a sheet of rice paper* down, spoon mixture liberally over rice paper.

    Step 5 – Place another piece of rice paper on top, followed by a piece of baking paper and roll out to desired thickness.

    Step 6 – Let set in fridge for approximately half an hour then slice up, trimming all edges first, then into 2-3cm strips.

     

    *Nut mixture – Can be anything you want really – pistachios, almonds, ginger, hazelnuts, glazed cherries and more, or even a mixture of many of these. Make sure you slightly toast your nut selection first before adding to mixture.

     

    * To make the nougat more soft and chewy in my nut mixture I add 50grams of white cooking chocolate.

     

    *Rice paper, make sure you get the ‘sweet’ one, not the one used for spring rolls, it is a rough paper feel to it, and can be found in some fruit markets (Minchinbury Fruit market is where I get mine) or Asian grocer.

     

     

    Great to make for Christmas gifts and everyone loves Nougat!

    this could be that you used quite a strong tasting honey. a mild honey is the best as it won't be over bearing. hope that helps!

    It looks like nougat but tastes predominately of honey. I know there is only honey and 1 egg white in the ingredients but it tastes more like honey than it does nougat. It is OK, but I will search for a better recipe.

    Submitted by Shayla on 2. June 2016 - 22:58.

    I have made this twice now and both times was perfect. After the first time I did a self wash to clean the bowl but I hate waste so the second time I left in the butterfly added 250gm milk and cooked at 80C for 10 minutes at speed 4. It made the most delicious hot drink and my bowl and butterfly were clean.

    I am so impressed by this. It is so amazing that it is just honey and one egg white...

    I am going to make this many times and it is just another reason why I love this machine so much.

    you do need to work quickly and it is best to clean the machine like mentioned below, but the end result is awesome.

  • This recipe tastes delicious
    Submitted by meganzig on 25. April 2015 - 20:14.

    This recipe tastes delicious BUT you need to work quick once the cooking time has finished. It was disappointing the amount mixture that went to waste in the bowl as it sets far too quickly to allow you to scrape all of it out. I stored the finished product in the fridge and it wasn't too hard to eat.

    I also used the tips from previous comments - combine the nuts/dried fruits on reverse speed 2 for a couple of seconds AND clean the bowl and butterfly for 5 mins 100 degrees speed 2. No idea how I would have gotton the mess out of the bowl otherwise!

    Made nougat the first time using this recipe, I added 50 gram of white chocolate as I prefer the nougat chewy.  I added pistachio and dried cranberry too as it's for christmas.  It's fantastic on the first day I made it, the next day, it's soft and looks like it's melted and sticky.

  • Made two batches over
    Submitted by nannykat on 3. January 2015 - 15:33.

    Made two batches over Christmas using a mix if nuts and Turkish delight cut up small and tossed in icing sugar.  Was really yum. Perfect texture but does get soft when out of fridge for a while.   The second batch was a bit short on honey so substituted with 30 g or woof glucose syrup,  not as good as first batch as wax a bit tacky and a bit sweeter, still  good enough to eat.  Should have melted down for ice cream,  could have been delish.  Will make again in future.

    Submitted by CarlaV on 29. December 2014 - 14:12.

    Tip for combining your ingredients - pop them into the bowl as soon as the nougat is cooked and put on reverse Sp 2 for a few seconds. It's quicker and easier than combining with a spatula..

    Submitted by missmliss on 24. December 2014 - 02:29.

    Was very happy with the end result, you definately have to work quickly before it starts to set.  I used a total of 4 sheets of the rice paper - wish I only did 2 so the nougat would have been a bit thicker as it ended up quite thin once I rolled it out.

    As the honey taste is quite prominent, do you think it would still work if you reduced the amount of Honey?  Perhaps halved it? 

    A great recipe anyway, thank you!

  • Public service announcement:
    Submitted by Persistenttiger on 23. December 2014 - 17:05.

    Public service announcement: do not attempt to make two lots of nougat back to back! 45 mins into the second lot the TM stopped. Let's hope the nougat is cooked enough! 

     

    So I've made it 3 times - first time a couple of weeks ago - tm was fine. Today, with 5 mins to go, tm had a load error - I'm guessing it's to do with overheating. 10 minutes later I put on another batch and it gave up sooner. I turned it off at the wall and waited a couple of minutes and it turned back on, cooked for another 4 minutes before stopping again.  I just aborted mission and set it in the tray. 

     

     

    The last twomtimes I used half honey and half rice malt syrup... Not sure if that's what has caused it, or humidity or unicorns.

    Hi, I couldnt get any either where I live.  I read through previous comments and someone said to use greased baking paper top and bottom.  Tried this and worked  - did not stick but found was a little tacky on outside when eating.  I made another batch yesterday and used ice cream wafers top and bottom and was a big hit all round. Hope this helps.

    Submitted by LittleMissSqueaker on 16. December 2014 - 21:50.

    This is great, I used hazelnuts, almonds, cranberries and white choc.

    made the first batch last night it overheated my new thermo, so it was a bit stressful but the mix still turned out well so I had another go tonight and it was even better. No overheating today, phew, but have let my consuleant know as he's only a week old. 

    dont try and cut it too early. It needs time to set. I find a sharp knife and sawing it works best. The first batch I tried to cut too early and it was a bit of a mess. Second batch when set was much better and clean cuts. It is still tough to cut though, that means it's set nicely!

    also get it out of the thermie as soon as it beeps, it starts to set qucikly.

    i just used greased baking paper.

    wash up by putting in hot water and running on speed 2 for 5 mins at 100 degrees and your sticky woes disappear!

    i put them in green and red cupcake paper cups and wrapped up in cellophane for small Christmas gifts, they look cute!
