Salted Caramel Ice Cream Cake Recipe

This recipe was shared with us by a family member. They created this devilish dessert for a summer barbeque and it was a complete hit. So we just had to steal the recipe and share it with all of you. And as always we will share some shortcuts for the lazy –time constrained- people out there.

Or if you’re not into brownies that much then learn how to a Brown Sugar Lebkuchen Spice Cake here.

We’re starting off with a brownie layer.  If you feel like you need to use a boxed brownie mix because frankly it tastes better then go ahead. we won’t tell. But we prefer making our own brownies. And I’m sharing the recipe.

Brownie+Ice cream+Nutella

You will need to use a springform pan to be able to serve it to your guests. So make sure to bake the brownie mixture in the pan. After removing the brownies from the oven, leave them to cool for at least two hours before adding the ice cream layer.

And here is the trick to making it taste better. Add a layer of Nutella between the ice cream and the brownie layers. Because you can never go wrong with Nutella. It works with absolutely everything.

You can use any ice cream flavour but plain and simple vanilla works just fine if not better. If you like crunchy textures you can add some crumbled pieces of Oreos. We decorated our cake with Oreo pieces.

And now for the layer that will bring our cake together and take it from an everyday dessert to a taste bud party: The salted Caramel sauce.

Salted Caramel sauce

You start off with sugar and water over medium heat while stirring constantly until the sugar has fully dissolved . Leave it without stirring until it boils and turns into a dark brown color. You want to make sure that the sugar doesn’t burn. Next, remove it from the heat and whisk in the heavy cream. Be careful as the mixture will bubble vigorously. Add in the butter, the vanilla and the salt. And then leave it to cool. This is the same recipe that I have previously used for the Twix pie, read it here. The cool thing about this recipe is that you can alter the amount of the salt to your preference.
