Tis the season where icecreams are welcome and hence the challenge this month for the Daring Bakers was most welcome too. Hosted by Sunita, the challenge this month was to make a swiss swirl icecream cake based ona recipe from Taste of Home. I love swiss rolls and icecream too. Although swiss rolls fail me sometimes I still make it. Luckily, this time, the cakes baked well... , did come off the parchment sheet, did not crumble and did not break while rolling.
The recipe calls for two swiss rolls, chocolate flavoured and rolled with whipped cream on the inside. Then the rolls are sliced and arranged in a bowl and filled with icecream, not one but two different flavours and a fudge sauce. Now something like this cannot be missed. I followed the exact recipe regarding all the contents that went into making this. The recipe can be found here. All you need is to plan ahead and this can be a be a very nice dessert different from the usual. And definitely ideal if the weather isn't too hot like it is in a place where I stay. They melt quite fast!
Plan ahead because lack of freezer space isn't going to work with his challenge.
The recipe for swiss roll is a keeper because with me, sometimes the rolls fail me. They roll so well in this recipe.
The same goes for the icecream recipes. I own no icecream maker, and this worked well with no crystal formations like always..
The fudge sauce wasn't visible when sliced. Have no clue as to why though..
My family loved it and
And an excellent challenge because you cannot stop indulging in it..
The July 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Sunita of Sunita’s world – life and food. Sunita challenged everyone to make an ice-cream filled Swiss roll that’s then used to make a bombe with hot fudge. Her recipe is based on an ice cream cake recipe from Taste of Home.-
