    Ice Cream Cake

    We had a birthday this week! Happy Birthday, S! This post is indulgent for many reasons, and I wanted to add it because I have always wanted to make an ice cream cake, and I finally did it, with some of my current favorite ingredients – ice cream (coconut) and brownies (protein rich, gluten-free).

    I was inspired by Zoe’s ice cream cake blog post, and Zoe is a great online baking tutor. I’ve learned several baking techniques since reading her blog. So, for the full technique in online color pictures, go to Zoe’s post.

    I modified the recipe using what I had on hand and my favorite ingredients, which I include below. And I made 4 layers, which I found to be quite enough to try to fit into my freezer. I stored the cake in my freezer by covering it with parchment paper since I didn’t have a box or cake cover that would fit. It would be great to have a homemade or store-bought cake box, but I made do (and it didn’t last too long).

    Note For SCDers, substitute the Refrigerator Cake for the brownie cake and use an SCD-legal ice cream.

    5. Just for your info, the links to both the brownie batter and ice cream are missing. The error message says “page not found.”

      Your pictures are lovely! Very beautiful!
