Ice cream cake

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

Ever since I saw this on Nigella’s show, for sale I’ve wanted to make this, information pills but I have substantially changed it so here’s my recipe!


1 2l tub of plain ice cream – I used Mackies soft scoop

1 shot of liquer – I used Baileys

150 g crushed choc chip cookies

100g mini marshmallows

100g crushed caramelised cashew nuts (yes I was weak)

crushed Minstrels and crushed Malteasers – whatever amounts seem good!

Soften ice cream and stir in ingredients. Pour into a cling film lined springform cake tin -8 inch. Cling film the top and freeze.

This seems a very forgiving recipe – I think you can vary amounts and ingredients to suit yourself.  Let me know if you come up with another version – I want to try one with jelly babies and freeze it in metallic muffin cases.
