Love Love Love Cassata Icecream. One of my favorite is Arun Cassata Icecream. I can eat tons of them, they are creamy and delicious..I have no problem in buying them from our neighbourhood bakery and enjoying. But recreating them at home, didn’t happen all in a sudden, it has a story. Read it..
Chilling Time : 10 Hours or Overnight
Serves : 5 to 6
Vanilla Cake – 1 packet, i used store bought
Icecreams – 4 flavours each 250 ml, I used vanilla, strawberry, pista and butterscotch
Simple Syrup – 1/2 cup, Recipe below
Cashewnuts – 1 cup chopped
Sugar – 1/4 cup
Water – 1/4 cup
Start by making simple syrup. Take sugar and water and a sauce pan, heat it to dissolve the sugar. Allow it to cool down. Syrup done..
Take a 1 liter bowl which is big enough to hold all the icecreams and cakes. Line it generously with vanilla cake. Break small pieces of cake and fill all the gaps.
Now wet the cake with the simple syrup generously.
Now take the icecream one by one in a bowl and cream it well. Spread the icecream one by one over the cakes above each one. Once all is one, sprinkle the top generously with chopped nuts.
Now cover the whole bowl with cling wrap and put in the freezer overnight.
When it is all set and frozen, invert it over the plate and remove the plastic wrap/
Slice and serve immediately.
1)You can use any of your favorite cake. But vanilla is prefered.
2)You can use any number of flavours in icecream. But use minimum of three flavours for best taste.
3)You can soak the cake with any fruit juices too instead of simple syrup.
4)You can top it with any nuts too.
5)Chill it very well before serving, overnight is prefered.
