Brownie Ice Cream Cake Recipe
One of my favorite things about summer is ice cream. I eat ice cream all year round,
but I think it’s especially refreshing in the summer. Sometimes ice cream just
isn't enough to satisfy though. Now, gooey brownies and ice cream paired with
raspberry sorbet is what I call a summer cool down treat.
In two 8 or 9 inch cake pans, bake a
batch of brownies
- your favorite
recipe or from a good mix.
Cool brownies completely and place onto cookie sheet side by side and place in the freezer.
Using the same baking pan (or one the same size), cover the bottom with a
piece of wax paper and put into freezer.
Have a pint of your favorite sorbet
(we like lemon or raspberry) and a half
gallon good quality vanilla ice cream
softening in the refrigerator. Take
the pan with wax paper out of freezer. Stir the sorbet to spreading
consistency and cover the wax paper with it. Sorbet may slide around a little,
but it's easy to adjust by grasping an edge of the paper. Make sure some
of it gets on the edges of the bottom not covered by the paper (it will help
to keep the subsequent layers stable). Put the pan back into freezer for 10 minutes.
Take vanilla ice cream out of the refrigerator and transfer about a pint
to a bowl for stirring. Put the rest of the ice cream back into fridge. When
the ice cream is spreadable, cover the sorbet with a layer of ice cream. Return
the pan to the freezer while preparing step 5.
Take the brownies out of the freezer. Take pan out
of the freezer and place half the brownies onto the ice cream. Put the pan
back in the freezer.
Take the vanilla ice cream out of the refrigerator and transfer another pint
into a bowl for stirring. When spreadable, cover the brownies from the
freezer with the ice cream. Place the second layer of brownies over this layer of vanilla
ice cream. If you like, you may cover the second layer of brownies with
another layer of ice cream. It's a good idea to cover the top layer of ice
cream with another piece of wax paper, especially if you don't plan to serve
the brownie cake right away. Brownie ice cream cake may be served within
half an hour or kept frozen for several days.
It is also easily adapted to different ice creams and frozen desserts.
