Cake and Ice Cream

As promised, I am sharing the homemade ice cream recipe I have been making, eating and talking about.

A few weeks ago Mom sent one of her “This Works” e-mails with a recipe and notes with the way she made it.  I didn’t take it serious.

When I got home for my visit last month, Mom asked me if I had tried said recipe.  I shamefully said no.  So, she made a batch of blueberry ice cream; then she made a batch of strawberry.  After one bite I realized, again, I really should try Mom’s recipes as soon as I can gather up all the ingredients.

On the other hand, Mom keeps bragging about this great cake recipe she makes.  Everytime she tells me “I made Polish Wedding Cake,” I ask her to send me the recipe.  When I was home Mom made Polish Wedding Cake to eat with our ice cream.  I wrote down the recipe.

Cheesecake Ice Cream (adapted from this recipe)

1 package fresh strawberries or blueberries or fruit of your choice

¼ C Sugar – or to taste

Blend berries in blender until almost smooth.  Set aside.

1 pkg. (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened

1 Pint Whipping Cream or Half and Half

1/3 C Milk

2 ½ C Sugar

2 tsp Vanilla

Mix ingredients until well blended and creamy.  Mom uses her blender.  I use my food processor.

Fold in berries.

Freeze 4 hours or until almost solid.

Remove dessert from freezer 15 min. before serving; let stand at room temperature to soften slightly before scooping into dishes.

Polish Wedding Cake 

1 White Cake Mix

1 C Flour

1 C Sugar

¾ t Salt

1 C Sour Cream

1 ½ C Water

1/8 C Oil

4 egg Whites

1 t Vanilla Extract

1 t Almond Extract

Pre heat oven to 350*.

Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Mom makes her cake in 2-Bunt pans.  I made mine in one bunt pan and baked for 45-50 minutes.  The original recipe recommended a 9X13” cake pan and to bake 45-50 minutes.

Mom’s favorite addition is fresh blueberries!  She pours batter into the bunt pans, layers blueberries and pours the remaining batter over the berries.

Strawberries, blueberries or your favorite fruit, I hope you have fun testing and tasting your favorite flavors.

    That sounds absolutely marvelous! I would love to bake, well, bake in general, but my husband doesn’t really eat any sweets. He’ll eat pies, but doesn’t do ice cream or cake, and that takes out half the fun in baking!

      Both J and I have a sweet tooth. I try to rotate through different types of sweets. No matter what a good ole Chocolate Chip Cookie will win over the Hubby’s heart.

  3. That ice cream looks amazing!

      I have served the cake to a cattle working crew and taken it to a potluck with good results. My Mom and I LOVE the ice cream. Our husbands are not impressed with it. At least they have good taste in women.
