Strawberry Honeycomb 'Cheesecake' Sundae

Strawberry Honeycomb Cheesecake Sundae

Kelly's of Cornwall, makers of yummy Cornish ice cream got in touch recently to see if I'd like to get involved with their Summer Scooping Challenge...er yes! The aim of the challenge was to create an Ice Cream Sundae recipe using some of their products, that would act as the perfect summer dessert.

If you know me, you will know my absolute favourite summer dessert is cheesecake - I could it eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner given the chance....and I did once! So with cheesecake firmly in mind I set about making a Strawberry 'Cheesecake' Ice Cream Sundae and ended up creating something truly amazing. They were so good I ate both myself - the kids didn't get a look in.

I used a Honeycomb Crunch ice cream for this recipe to give it some added crunchiness but a normal vanilla or strawberry would work well too. I also wanted the ice cream to be quite soft, to try and emulate the texture of a traditional cheesecake, so I took the ice cream out of the freezer about 10 minutes before scooping. However, if you wanted a firmer texture, take the ice cream out of the freezer at the time you need it and follow Kelly's top tips to get that elusive perfect scoop...
  • 1. Dip your ice cream scoop in some very hot water, then dry off with a paper towel before inserting into the ice cream.
  • 2. Use metal ice cream scoop if possible as it ensures a strong scooping action.
  • 3. Pull the scoop towards you and the ice cream should curl into a perfect scoop.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
