Ice Cream Christmas Pudding
« on: November 26, 2014, 03:07:58 am »
Ingredients

1 cup fruit mince
1/2 cup chopped glace pineapple
60g halved blanched almonds
1/2 cup chopped glace cherries
3 TB brandy
125g pkt cream cheese
900ml chocolate ice cream
150ml cream
2ts cinnamon

1. Place fruit mince, pineapple, almonds and cherries in a bowl and sprinkle brandy over. Set aside for 1 hour.

2. Beat cream cheese until smooth then fold into slightly softened ice cream with brandied fruits, lightly whipped cream and cinnamon. Pour into a  1.2 litre pudding basin or fancy mould. Cover top with foil and freeze overnight.

3. Invert basin or mould onto a serving plate. Cover with a hot, wrung out cloth to loosen, then carefully lift basin off ice cream. Replace in freezer to harden then decorate with extra whipped cream, chocolate curls and glace fruits to serve.

This is the recipe from the Good Cheap Cookbook but sometimes I omit the cream cheese and cream and just add the fruit and nuts to chocolate ice cream and it is just as nice. I have used a variety of ice cream brands and they all made up nicely.

It is a quick easy recipe and tastes delicious; hope you like it.

Yummo. I always do some sort of icecream cake thing for Christmas. Thanks for supplying this years recipe Troupie. Then again I might just make it for us.
