Hi, Everyone, it has been a while, how are all of you doing?

I hope all of you are healthy and safe, sending all of you love and lots of hugs.

I have been absent on the blog for the past month because I have been sick and was hospitalized due to an infection in my pancreas. I was supposed to get an operation this month but because of the coronavirus, it is on pause for the moment.

I feel so much better and look forward to making new recipes. 

Sharing a delicious ice cream cake recipe with you all today.

A licorice raspberry ice cream cake that is just so delicious.

The crust is a gluten-free almond crust, topped with licorice ice cream and swirled raspberry coulis on top.

I love this combination I have always been a fan of licorice and combined with raspberry coulis and the gooey almond crust it just one delicious ice cream cake. If you are not a fan of licorice just omit the raw licorice powder and add 2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste into the ice cream instead.

Almond Crust

  • 4 egg whites,(135 gram) at room temperature
  • 235 gram powdered sugar or confectioners’ sugar
  • 250 gram ground almonds

Raspberry Coulis

  • 250 gram fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 3 tablespoon white sugar
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon

Licorice Ice cream

  • 500 gram heavy cream, cold
  • 250 gram sweet condensed milk, cold
  • 2 tablespoon raw licorice powder

Direction for the almond crust

  • Wipe a stainless-steel bowl and the whisk attachment, of a standing mixer, with a paper towel moistened with lemon juice.
  • This step is done to eliminate any trace of grease, which would hinder the egg whites from stiffening.
  • Preheat the oven to 320°F (160°C). Line a 9-inch (24 cm) round springform pan with parchment paper, grease the sides and set aside.
  • Place the egg whites into the bowl and beat on low speed until foamy, about 30 seconds. increase the speed to medium-high and beat until soft peaks form about 1 minute.
  • Increase the speed to high then add the powdered or confectioners’ sugar, one spoonful at a time.
  • Beat on medium/high speed until stiff peaks form and the meringue is glossy and thick.
  • With a silicone spatula, fold in the ground almonds
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared springform pan.
  • Use your spatula to spread evenly and to eliminate any air bubbles.
  • Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 25 minutes.
  • Do not over bake this cake!
  • Let cool completely.

Direction for the Raspberry Coulis

  • Combine the raspberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a food processor and process on low speed until it becomes liquid.
  • If you are using frozen raspberries process the raspberries at high speed instead until it becomes liquid.
  • Strain the coulis through a fine-mesh sieve and discard the seeds.
  • Refrigerate the coulis while you make the licorice ice-cream.

Direction for the licorice Ice Cream

  • In a large bowl using an electric beater ( or use a bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Add your cold cream.
  • Mix on medium/high speed until fluffy.
  • stop the mixer, and pour in the cold condensed milk into the whipped cream, and whip for about 1 minute more or until fluffy.
  • Add in 2 tablespoons raw licorice powder and combine with a spatula.
  • Scoop the whipped licorice ice cream on top of your cooled almond cake layer, use a spatula or a spoon to evenly spread the ice cream base.
  • Remove the cold raspberry coulis from the fridge, add 3 to 4 spoonfuls on top of the licorice ice cream, with a spoon swirl it into the licorice ice-cream. ( you will have leftover raspberry coulis so delicious on top of yogurt)
  • Cover the top tightly with plastic wrap and place in your freezer for at least 5 to 6 hours, but preferably overnight.
  • 10 to 20 minutes before serving, remove the ice cream cake from the freezer, slice and enjoy.

Have a great Sunday and new week you all, sending you love.
Love Manuela xoxo
