I’m sensing an ice-creamy/cool treat theme with some of our Aussie authors who celebrate Christmas in the middle of their summer, so have a peek at this delicious treat from Marion Lennox! And then enter to win a copy of CHRISTMAS WITH HER BOSS!
Layered Berry Ice Cream Cake
This is an Extra Christmas Pudding for our family. We start making it a couple of weeks before Christmas, or even earlier if we find good berries, and we keep layering until we run out of room in our Very Large Container. It works with every kind of berry except strawberries. You do need an icecream churn.
Recipe For Each Layer
500 g berries, pureed and sieved
3/4 cup of caster (superfine) sugar
1 cup whipped cream (Don’t use too dense a cream as it makes it a bit heavy)
Cream egg yolks with sugar
Fold in the berry puree
Fold in the cream
Whisk egg whites until stiff. Fold into mixture.
Pour into ice cream maker and churn.
Put into large, cake-shaped container. Cover with cling film and freeze.
Two days later do another layer. And another.
To serve, turn out and decorate with a few berries. If desired, puree additional berries, add sugar to taste and use as a sauce to pour over individual slices.
This cake comes in and out of my freezer for a week or so after Christmas – we’ve made it up to eight layers thick – and it feeds a small army.
