Melted ice cream cake


  • The cake part of this recipe has just three ingredients and is so easy to make even the kids can make it.
  • The cake it makes has a fine crumb and we have drizzled it with a mixture of icing sugar mixture and orange juice.
  • Be careful with dairy that has been left out of the fridge or freezer for extended periods of time – it can contain harmful bacteria. We recommend if you are melting ice cream specifically for this recipe to do it in the refrigerator.
  • You can make your favourite flavoured icing but we have opted for a simple drizzle.
