Strawberry Ice Cream Cake

Strawberries are at their peak in my area right now. This led to a week-long strawberry extravaganza at my house. By Friday, I have bits of lots of dishes which ended up being this amazing cake.

Lemon Buttermilk Pound Cake [I use the recipe from Epicurious in the link]

Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream 

Fresh Strawberry Jam (see below)

1/2 c Grand Mainer

Strawberry Jam

4 pints fresh strawberries

3 cups sugar

1 box pectin

Preparation

Stem, hull and wash strawberries. Place them in a large pot and add the sugar and pectin. Mash the strawberries with a potato masher until combine with sugar and pectin. Bring to a full boil. Once the mixture has reached a boil, remove from heat and place in prepared jars to cool.

Ice Cream Cake Preparation

Remove ice cream from freezer and allow to soften for 10 to 15 minutes.

Line a spring form pan with plastic wrap (cling film). Leave about 5 inches of cling wrap overhang on the pan. You will use this to cover the entire cake for freezing.

For a six inch round, you will need approximately 1/4 of the cake left over from the lemon buttermilk cake recipe. Slice cake into 1/2 inch thin slices. Create a single layer of slices of cake in the bottom of the spring form pan. You may have to cut out various shapes to create a solid layer.

Pour 1/4 c of the Grand Mainer over the layer of cake and let it absorb.

Add 3 cups of softened ice cream as the next layer. Use a spatula to press the ice cream into an even layer over the cake.

Place a second layer of buttermilk cake on top of the layer of ice cream. Use the remaining 1/4 c Grand Mainer over the cake.

 

Spoon on 1 cup of jam and spread across the entire cake evenly.

Fold up the remaining plastic wrap to fully cover the cake. Place the cake in the freezer to set, about 2 hours.

Remove cake from freezer about 10 minutes before serving. Check to see if the ice cream needs to soften at all to make it easy to slice. Use a knife dipped in warm water between slices to cut the cake.
