Desserts, Ice Cream & Frozen Delights / 25.08.2020

Sponsored.I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for summer! I might be getting a bit ahead of myself but in preparation for warmer, sunny days I made this luscious layered frozen yoghurt dessert.This striking strawberry and vanilla frozen yoghurt cake is perfect when you’re expecting guests as it can be made well in advance and looks way harder to make than it actually is! Each layer is made with just a few ingredients and simply requires a little patience for the layers to freeze. I’ve used two new flavours of Nutriday Full Cream Yoghurt, - fruity strawberry and...

I don't know about you, but I'm so ready to see my friends again! It's been 6 weeks of lockdown now - that's 6 weeks of not leaving the house at all. Although I've always been quite a home-body and enjoyed spending my days in the kitchen, it's not quite the same when you don't have anyone to share your creations with. My husband has some of it, but he actually doesn't have much of a sweet-tooth! So although it still feels like an absolute age until we can have friends round for dinner again, I've already planned the...

SponsoredTrifle is a classic Christmas dessert, and for good reason! What's not to love about layers of dipped biscuits, creamy custard, jelly, fruit and whipped cream. All the colours and textures work so beautifully together. I got to thinking that a frozen version of this traditional treat would make for a refreshing change, and would be perfect for our hot climate here in South Africa! This Trifle Ice Cream Cake is sure to wow your guests and delight the senses! It's made up of layers of finger biscuits, creamy Danone Ultramel Vanilla Custard ice cream, peach sorbet, strawberry jelly ice cream...

It may be the middle of winter in South Africa, but that's never stopped me from enjoying a slice of ice cream cake. Especially one as magnificent as this one! Peppermint Crisp Tart (and all its variations) has proven to be a perennial favourite so I couldn't resist adding another recipe to the collection. This Peppermint Crisp Ice Cream Cake has a crunchy Tennis Biscuit crust, caramel ice cream layer, choc-mint ice cream layer, and a vanilla ice cream layer with Peppermint Crisp pieces. If you can bring yourself to slice through the beautiful layers and take a bite, you'll...

Sometimes you need a super-impressive dessert with minimal effort. In fact, I can't think of any occasion where such a dessert would not be ideal! That's where these utterly gorgeous Mini Lemon Baked Alaska's work perfectly. Apart from the meringue, the remaining components can all be shop-bought, and the majority of the preparation is done in advance. If you do happen to have some home-made lemon curd, sponge cake or vanilla ice cream at home then all the better! Baked Alaska's have a reputation for being difficult to make. This is because essentially you are applying high heat to a frozen...

It's no secret that I love Banoffee Pie! The simple combination of bananas, caramel, whipped cream and crunchy biscuits is a classic that I never get bored of. A recent Instagram poll confirmed that just like me, many of you also love this combo, especially on waffles! This got me thinking what a great ice cream flavour it would make. Using the same ingredients as Banoffee Pie (except for melted butter), I was able to make this easy no-churn Banoffee Ice Cream. I like to freeze my ice cream container before-hand, and also have my cream and caramel very cold before I...

Happy New Year fellow bakers, dessert-lovers and friends! Are you among the many who are starting the year on a healthy note, cutting down on sugar, dairy or fat? Then this Brown Sugar Peach Ice Cream recipe is just for you! Not because it’s sugar-, dairy- or fat-free, but because you’re going to need an indulgent dessert to dive into to reward yourself for being so healthy! Use lovely fresh peaches in season for maximum flavour, but tinned peaches will do fine out of season.   Ingredients: For the Ice Cream base: 375ml milk 375ml cream pinch of salt 4 large egg yolks 185ml brown sugar For the Peach Swirl 350g...

Toasted marshmallows on an open fire - what could be more reminiscent of a night in the bush or a camping weekend? In fact, even a casual braai or indoor fire is an excuse to get some marshmallows toasting in my opinion! Nothing quite compares to that toasty, roasted flavour - ever so slightly burnt and crispy on the outside, and gooey and soft on the inside. I was determined to translate this flavour into an ice cream and my new Russell Hobbs ice cream maker gave me the perfect excuse to get experimenting. As it turns out, this Toasted Marshmallow...

The sight of figs in the shops always signals the end of summer to me. Which is sad, but not really, because figs are amazing! I felt that this Roasted Fig and Walnut Maple Ice Cream would be a perfect dish to cross over from summer into autumn. The warm, caramelised figs and toasted walnuts hint at autumn, the cool ice cream refreshing enough for a late summer evening. It’s really worth splurging on a bottle of real maple syrup for the ice cream - the flavour is incomparable! Use what’s left to make some Pecan Pie Granola or drizzle over...

The combination of ice cream, popcorn and caramel may seem a little strange at first but let me assure you, it is a wonderful combination indeed. The slightly salty, crunchy popcorn adds a totally new dimension to the sweet, creamy vanilla ice cream. Smother this in rich, salted caramel sauce and you have yourself a Caramel Popcorn Ice Cream Sundae to die for! As with many things in life, homemade is so much better than shop-bought. This is definitely true of caramel popcorn.  I find the shop-bought variety sickly sweet with only a mild caramelised flavour in comparison to this recipe. Not...
