Putting the cake together

  1. Remove loaf pan from the fridge, pour ½ the Vanilla Ice Cream over it, then drizzle with ½ the chocolate sauce on top, cover with ½ of the Chocolate ice cream, drizzle again with the remaining chocolate sauce, then cover again with the rest of the Vanilla Ice Cream, (or vice versa if you prefer). Cover the pan with plastic wrap and freeze until firm for approximately 5 hours or overnight.

Chocolate Ganache

  1. In a large bowl add the butter, cream and chopped chocolate stir until smooth and melted, add a little extra cream if too thick (make sure the cream is warm), set aside 2 minutes to cool. Remove from the freezer, remove cake from loaf pan and place on a plate, cover with Ganache, decorate with chopped chocolate or even nuts before serving. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Any leftover cake should be stored in an airtight freezer-safe container. Wrap it tightly to prevent freezer burn and store it for up to two weeks.
