    ISO: Ice Cream Cake

    My family will be here visiting us (we're finally all moved to Plano, TX and love it!) and it's my cousin's birthday and she loves ice cream cakes. I'd like to make one, I can't believe they would be too difficult. Has anyone made one? If so, do you have a recipe or basic instructions?

    Everyone needs to believe in something. I believe I'll have another beer. . .

    1 (24 oz.) box fudge brownie mix,
    *** prepared as directed
    1/2 C. chopped walnuts, toasted, if desired
    2 oz. semisweet or bittersweet baking chocolate, chopped
    1 1/2 qt. vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
    2 1/2 C. individually-quick frozen unsweetened
    *** raspberries (from a 12-oz bag), not thawed

    Heat oven to temperature called for on brownie mix. Grease bottom of two 8-in layer-cake pans; line
    bottoms with wax paper or foil and grease. Have ready an 8-in springform pan.

    Stir nuts and chocolate into batter. Divide batter between layer-cake pans. Bake 30 to 35 minutes until a
    wooden pick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool in pans on a wire rack for about 10 minutes, then
    run a knife around edges of layers and invert on rack. Peel off paper; cool layers completely.

    To assemble: Select 10 to 12 whole berries; keep frozen. Place 1 brownie layer in bottom of springform
    pan. Top with half the ice cream; sprinkle with half the remaining raspberries. Press into an even layer
    with back of a spoon. Cover with remaining brownie layer; sprinkle with remaining raspberries, top with
    remaining ice cream and press into an even layer. Push reserved raspberries into the ice cream. Cover
    pan tightly with foil and freeze at least 8 hours or up to 2 weeks.

    Three to 4 hours before serving: Run a knife between cake and springform pan; remove pan sides.
    Leave cake on pan bottom or loosen with a pancake turner and carefully transfer to a serving plate. Cut
    cake in wedges; leave assembled. Place in freezer. About 20 minutes before serving: Transfer cake to
    refrigerator to soften lightly.

    NOTE: May be frozen up to 2 weeks


    Begin making this one day in advance. For best results, use a rich, premium ice cream, as it will freeze firmly.

    1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
    8 ounces bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate, chopped
    1 1/2 9-ounce packages chocolate wafer cookies (about 61 cookies)

    1/2 cup whipping cream
    1/4 cup light corn syrup
    6 ounces bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate, chopped

    7 cups premium vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
    1 1/4 cups coarsely crushed red-and-white-striped hard peppermint candies (about 10 ounces)
    2 teaspoons peppermint extract

    Red-and-white-striped hard peppermint candies, whole or broken into pieces

    For crust:
    Melt butter with chocolate in heavy small saucepan over low heat. Finely grind cookies in processor. Add warm chocolate mixture; blend just until crumbs are moistened. Reserve 1 cup crumb mixture in small bowl. Press remaining crumb mixture onto sides, then bottom of 9-inch-diameter springform pan with 2 3/4-inch-high sides. Freeze.

    For glaze:
    Bring cream and corn syrup to boil in heavy large saucepan. Remove from heat. Add chocolate; whisk until melted and smooth. Let stand until cool but still pourable, about 1 hour.

    For filling:
    Working quickly, mix ice cream, 1 1/4 cups crushed candies, and extract in large bowl just until blended. Spoon half of ice cream into crust; spread evenly (place remaining ice cream mixture in bowl in freezer). Sprinkle reserved 1 cup cookie crumbs over ice cream in pan; press gently. Pour 1 cup chocolate glaze over ice cream in pan. Freeze 1 hour. Top with remaining ice cream; spread evenly. Freeze until firm, about 4 hours. Stir remaining glaze over low heat just until pourable but not warm. Pour glaze over ice cream; spread evenly. Freeze overnight.

    Run sharp knife between crust and pan sides to loosen cake. Release pan sides. Transfer cake to platter. Garnish cake with peppermint candies and serve.

    Makes 12 servings.

    Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Cake

    From Every Day with Rachael Ray
    June/July 2006

    Prep time 30 min (plus chilling and freezing)

    1 cup (1/2 pint) heavy cream
    12 ounces (1 package) semisweet chocolate chips
    1 12-ounce marble pound cake, such as Entenmann's brand, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
    1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened
    20 chocolate wafers, such as Nabisco brand, plus 4 crushed wafers
    1 pint chocolate ice cream, softened

    1. In a small saucepan, bring the heavy cream to a boil over medium-high heat. Put the chocolate chips in a heatproof medium bowl and pour the boiling cream over the chocolate. Let sit until the chocolate is melted, about 2 minutes. Stir the mixture with a fork for about 2 minutes, until the ganache is smooth.
    2. Line a nonstick 9 x 5 x 3¾-inch loaf pan with 2 overlapping sheets of plastic wrap, allowing a 4-inch overhang on all sides.
    3. Pour half of the ganache (1 cup) evenly into the lined pan and spread to cover the base. Cover the ganache with a single layer of tightly packed cake slices; be sure the layer is flat and even. Working quickly, spread the vanilla ice cream evenly over the pound cake. Cover the ice cream with a layer made of half of the chocolate wafers. Spread the remaining ganache evenly over the wafers, then top the ganache with another layer, using all of the remaining wafers, and place the cake in the freezer for about 30 minutes to chill and firm up.
    4. Remove the cake from the freezer and spread the chocolate ice cream over the wafers. Top with another flat, single layer of tightly packed slices of pound cake, trimming 1 or 2 slices to fill in the gaps (there will be a few slices left over). The cake may be slightly higher than the pan. Cover the cake completely with the plastic overhang and freeze until firm, at least 5 hours or overnight.
    5. To loosen the ice cream cake from the pan, open the plastic wrap and invert the pan over a flat serving platter. Remove the plastic wrap. Scatter the crushed chocolate wafers over the ice cream cake, then slice and serve immediately.
