Choco-Vanilla Ice-Cream Cake with raisins soaked in rum and a drizzle of Baileys’ Irish Cream. A dessert for life’s busy moments.
By Chinmayie Bhat
I love desserts and baking my cake or stirring my Halwa (Indian Fudge) but we all need super easy dessert recipes for life’s busy moments.
I made this ice-cream cake a couple of weeks ago for the first time. I had some guests coming over for lunch and for dessert there was some chocolate brownie and ice-cream. I felt like it was just too boring but didn’t really have the energy to whip up something new. Then suddenly I remembered an ice-cream cake that Nigella Lawson had made in her TV show years ago. I didn’t remember what really went into it but I remembered it being super simple but looking absolutely great! My first ice-cream cake was vanilla ice-cream mixed with my leftover brownies and some crumbled digestive biscuits. I know it doesn’t sound fancy by it sure looked amazing. My guests loved it.
Today once again I am low on energy and time so couldn’t really bake an elaborate cake or any other time consuming dessert but that doesn’t stop me from enjoying something sweet. I am making the simple and sinful ice-cream cake, choco-vanilla with soaked in rum. To make it even more special I served this piece of heaven with Bailey’s Irish cream. It’s far from healthy but don’t we all deserve to indulge once in a while.
Make this when you want to amaze your guests with a delightful dessert which took you only 5 minutes to put together. I already have a zillion different flavor combos in mind.Print
