Icecream Cake with Butterscotch Sauce

By PaisleyJade - Wednesday, February 08, 2012

This icecream cake is what legends are made of.  I have heard it whispered and raved about, and finally was able to track down the recipe owner, who graciously said I was even allowed to share it here (thank you so much Ashley!!!).

I love it!  It's so delicious, interesting, fun to make and another one of those genius creations that you can change the ingredients around to suit your own tastes and/or supplies at hand.

Included here is also the recipe for the most delicious Butterscotch Sauce to pour over top of your icecream cake, but be warned, only a small dribble is needed as it is rich!

Ice Cream Cake


2L Vanilla Ice cream (softened - just leave it out for 10 minutes or so while preparing the other ingredients)
1 packet of Tim Tams, crushed in chunks (plain, or any other biscuit that is chocolate with chocolate icing)
3 x Crunchie Bars (crushed but not demolished. just nice chunky pieces)
100grams of honey roasted mixed nuts, lightly chopped (do not leave whole as when frozen they can break teeth!).
1 x block of white chocolate, chopped quite small

Mix them all together and pour into a glad wrap lined tin (I use a spring form cake tin). Place this into the freezer until frozen, usually overnight (can prepare it in the morning for dessert that night).

Butterscotch Sauce ingredients

2 tablespoons Butter
2 tablespoons White Sugar
3 tablespoons Brown Sugar
½ cup of Golden syrup
¾ of a tin of condensed milk 

Heat all these ingredients and bubble for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Then add a few drops of vanilla essence and 125ml of cream.

Leave on the stove top to bubble for a few more minutes. It ends up being quite a thick, rich looking sauce and very caramel in colour (this is how you can tell it's cooked).

Pour into a jug and leave to cool and go gooey before pouring it over the ice cream cake. It can be re-heated if need be.

Mmmmmm!  I've made it twice already and I know it won't be the last!
