Welcome to my homemade chocolate ice cream cake in the ice cream maker.
You know that after a while of making ice cream everyday that the novelty starts to wear off. There is only so many times that you can make chocolate, vanilla or strawberry ice cream. Yes they are delicious, but it is like if you ate fast food everyday after a while you would never want to see it again or be sick of the sight of it.
Well after making six different lots of ice cream in one week we were starting to feel like that, well that was until Dominic made the most amazing chocolate ice cream cake. A recipe that I never even thought I would like, let alone love and it be my favourite ever ice cream!
So what is so special about it?
Well if you add delicious vanilla ice cream to my chocolate cake dough and then add in some of Dominic’s amazing caramel sauce. Then you have homemade chocolate ice cream cake.
Plus the frugal parent in me also knows that the chocolate bits in the ice cream make so much that you have a huge amount for making some nice cookies with for later. Or alternatively grab a nice flavoured ice cream (from our month of delicious ice creams) and add chocolate cake to your favourite one.Homemade #Chocolate Ice Cream #Cake In The Ice Cream Maker via @recipe_thisClick To Tweet
Start by making your chocolate dough. In a mixing bowl place your flour, butter, sugar and cocoa powder. Rub the fat into the other ingredients for about 5 minutes until you have a soft mixture, Mix together until you have a big dough ball. You wont need any water or milk because the high level of butter will make it all bind together well.
Place your dulce de leche ice cream back in your ice cream maker, or make our dulce de leche ice cream (get the recipe here).
Rough chopped the dough into penny sized pieces and then add it to your dulce de leche ice cream in the ice cream maker.
Let it whisk around for 5 minutes and then stick into ice cream tubs in the freezer for 2 hours.
Because dulce de leche is a good toffee ice cream it can be the base for a variety of add on flavours.
