Author Notes

On this ice cream cake, both parts—the ice cream (roasted banana) and the cake (chocolate-date)—retain their identities. For the reason that cake is frozen fully earlier than a layer of correct-churned ice cream is spread on high and all of the pan is sent motivate into the freezer, you are going to find two discrete layers. It is a job that comprises a tolerance for delayed gratification you in all likelihood below no circumstances knew you had.

But within the tip it capability that the cake is complemented, in predicament of overpowered, by the ice cream—and vice versa. The fudgy, truffle-treasure texture of the cake stands up to the ice cream but turns true into a runt softer; the richness from the dates and the chocolate is extra pronounced with the barely-bitter banana model as a foil. In its save of icecreamcake, you find ice cream-cake—joint yet separate.
