Oreo Ice cream with hot chocolate cake

      Ice cream is so exquisite, pity it isn’t illegal

Ι think I know what Voltaire was thinking  when he said this. When someone puts a plate of this deliciously cold Oreo Ice cream with a slice of hot super moist, decadent melting chocolate cake, nine out of ten people will pick it up , the tenth one will pick it moments later.You just can’t decide which one is melting faster, the ice cream, the chocolate cake or your heart.  The best way to enjoy is to eat the cake and the ice cream together. The hot cake and cold ice cream tantalize your taste buds and seduce your senses into a state of blissful tranquility. Remember to warm up the cake and the chocolate ganache in your microwave just before you indulge.

All the while, I was making my blow hot blow cold dessert, I was reminded of the lyrics from the popular number from Rolling Stones’ Mixed Emotions-

        You’re not the only one
       With mixed emotions
       You’re not the only ship
       Adrift on this ocean…

 


Oreo Ice cream and Chocolate cake


For the Oreo Ice cream:

  • 600 ml  vanilla ice cream
  • 1 small pack of Oreo cookies (vanilla cream)

Crumb the cookies along with the cream and add to the ice cream. Mix well and put it in the freezer.

For the Chocolate cake:

  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla essence

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two nine inch round cake tins.
  2. In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together- the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla, mix for 2 minutes on medium speed  Add  the boiling water last.  Pour evenly into the tins.
  3. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  4. Cool on a wire rack.

 

For the  Chocolate ganache:

  • 200 g semi sweet chocolate chopped in pieces
  • 50 g butter
  • 120 ml milk

Put them all together in a bowl and heat in a microwave or a double boiler. Keep stirring and whisking in between.

Spread in between the two layers of cake. Just before you serve heat it up again and spread on top of  warm chocolate cake. Enjoy with Oreo ice cream. Sprinkle some Oreo crumbs on the ice cream for the added crunch.
