Delia Smith visits my Kitchen!
Hot Chocolate Fudge Sundae
Swan Ice Cream Maker
Oh how I wish Delia, aka Saint Delia, would visit my kitchen, but I am afraid my title has been somewhat misleading and her only presence in my kitchen was via one of her
cooking bibles, books! This is my slightly adapted recipe for Hot Chocolate Fudge Sundae as taken from her book, Summer Collection, which still remains one of my very favourite cookbooks. Delia has the ability to bring the unusual and unique to the table but with simple, easy to follow instructions which makes all of her recipes appear achievable…..and it’s this skill that has made her one the most popular celebrity chefs (or cooks) of the 20th and 21st centuries. Such is power and popularity, that in the wake of her Summer Collection book release, supermarkets and deli’s all over the land sold out of sun-dried tomatoes and “muffin” tins! I have ALL of her cookbooks and they are the most thumbed books in my vast cookbook collection.
Today’s recipe is simplicity itself, especially as I made it in a rather FAB electric Swan Ice Cream maker that was sent to me by Ideal World TV. The beauty about the basic ice cream is that if you don’t have an ice cream maker, then you can make this by hand as it is a “no churn” style, and uses a very simple cream and condensed milk base, which means no egg custard to worry about. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, then stick around, as I have ONE to offer as a giveaway at the bottom of this post……as very kindly donated by the folks over at Ideal World TV. The sauce for this sundae is also super easy to make and although Delia suggests using dark chocolate, I quite fancied a milk chocolate fudge sauce for my ice cream delight, so that’s exactly what I used, but the choice is yours of course.
The ice cream maker is very simple to use – it’s a self-churning ice cream maker with an enormous 2 litre capacity that takes just half an hour to set. I LOVED using it and as my old ice cream maker has given up the ghost, I was delighted to have a new one sent to me. It has: Open lid to allow ingredients to be added whilst in motion, Detachable freezer bowl, mixing paddle and lid for easy cleaning, Glowing on/off dial and it also includes a handy recipe book. It’s ideal for making all kinds of Ice Cream, including gelato, frozen yogurt and sorbets……so, my recipe for Sorbet Cassis (Blackcurrant Sorbet) and “No Churn” Crème Fraiche Sorbet with Candied Almonds would be an absolute doddle to make!
But, back to today’s recipe, which was my random recipe for Dom’s monthly challenge, Random Recipes; this month he teamed up with Kavey from Kavey Eats for a combined Bloggers Scream for Ice Cream AND Random Recipes challenge. My randomly selected book was Delia Smith’s Summer Collection and having ascertained where the chilled section was, my recipe was revealed as a Hot Chocolate Fudge Sundae, which I was happy to make! DO give the recipe I have shared below a go, it’s decadently sweet and fudgy with a nutty crunch and it’s very easy to make. Also, WHY NOT enter the giveaway to win a fabulous Swan Ice Cream Maker, you never know your luck! See you later and have a GREAT weekend, Karen
