Ice Cream is basically frozen custard and this ice cream christmas cake recipe is a perfect Christmas dessert for hot December Holidays. Give it a try, it is unlike anything you have had before.
What you need
50g dried cranberries or cherries
2 tots brandy
2 tots cointreau or rum
4 tablespoons icing sugar
1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
500ml Custard (Woolies custard is excellent for this), chilled
50g macadamia nuts
Amaretti biscuits/biscotti to serve
Decide whether you want to make a dome or a loaf ice cream cake and choose a bowl accordingly. A glass bowl that takes about 2 liters is perfect.
Add the raisins, sultanas and cherries to the bowl, toss in the brandy and the rum, give it a mix and set aside for a few hours. Anything over 2 hours is great.
Now add the macadamia nuts, cinnamon and icing sugar and give it a good stir. If you notice a fair amount of liquid in the bottom of the dowl, drain it off.
Now add the custard and stir again. Tap the bowl on the counter to even out the top and place in the freezer for 2 hours. Remove from the freezer, whick with a fork and then back into the freezer until you are ready to serve.
Slice or scoop and serve with a biscotti or amaretti biscuit on the side.
