Cake-batter flavored ice cream?

Recommended Posts

On holiday in Miami with my sister recently, we absconded from our tour group and found a lovely ice cream shop, delicious flavours including birthday cake ice cream.

We had to try it, tasted just like cake batter (asnyone who licked the bowl as a child needs this!)

Since coming home I've been trying to find a recipe which will yield a similar taste as I'd love to use it as the filling for a meringue birthday cake for a friend of mine.

Much googling has been done, but nothing to show for it, any thoughts?

Spam in my pantry at home.

Think of expiration, better read the label now.

Spam breakfast, dinner or lunch.

Think about how it's been pre-cooked, wonder if I'll just eat it cold.

They make a birthdaycake flavor syrup. It's a big flavor for snowcones down here. I'd try that before I'd dump a cake mix into my custard, I just think that'd throw the texture waay off. Try googling (now over 200$/share btw) for snowcone/snowball syrups and/or recipes for them. might get lucky. I might bring my kids to a stand after the game today and I'll ask to see the bottle. Maybe it's got some information you could use to order on it.

Wedding Cake is one of my old standbys (it's basically like combining almond and vanilla). I like it with a little condensed milk over the top. I will most likely have one mid afternoon Friday at the Fairgrounds.

KA Flours sells something called "Princess" flavour extract. I haven't tried it but the catalogue promises you that traditional "bakery" cake taste. Maybe a little of that in a vanilla ice cream recipe is all you need?

thanks guys, I had a suspicion it might be a syrup flavouring...

I will try and get hold of the princess flavouring though, that sounds pretty good and I wanted to order a couple of other bits from them. Being in the uk really is a pain sometimes, we dont seem to have an equivalent for king arthur's here :sad:

      I posted this on YouTube the other day and thought I'd post it here. Personally, when I make them for me I only use Erythritol (a sugar substitute) but depending on the friend sugar or a blend of the two. Unlike other zucchini brownies, these don't use egg white, so they're not cake-y, but dense and fudgy. 
       
      Oh, and because I use whey protein, they're higher in protein and good for post-workout bite. 
       
       
      Ingredients
      300 -400 grams zucchini 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup sugar or sugar substitute 1/2 cup cocoa 1-2 tablespoons flavoring (brandy, rum, vanilla, etc) 2 shots of espresso (or instant, 60ml/2oz) 2 egg yolks 1/2 cup flour 1/2 cup oatmeal 1 cup whey protein (or milk powder) 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional, but adds nice flavor)   1. Mince the zucchini in the food processor with the salt.
      2. Add the sugar or sugar substitute and process until the sugar is dissolved.
      3. Bloom your cocoa: In a separate bowl, combine the cocoa with HOT espresso and your flavorings (including cinnamon). Stir until mostly dissolved.
      4. To the food processor add the cocoa mixture and two egg yolks and blend together.
      5. Add the whey protein or milk powder to the mixture and blend together.
      6. Add the oatmeal and blend.
      7. Add the flour and pulse to incorporate (in other words, try not to over mix).
      8. Pour into a brownie pan and bake for 20-30 minutes at 180C/350F

      Hello! I'm fairly new to this site so I don't know if my search was weak. I'm trying to find a way to make Mandarin orange puree at home, but I couldn't find anything even similar in the forum. I am a home cook, but I have been making chocolate bonbons and other confections for over 4 years (intermitantly). It is too expensive for me to purchase this online- not because of the price of the puree, but the cost of shipping makes it prohibative. The recipes I've seen online are all differant and don't seem to be what I need. 
      I would love any help with this! I look forward to hearing and learning from those who have much, much more experience than me. Thanks!

      In hopes of sleeping better, etc, etc, I have currently given up gluten, dairy and now sugar.  The gluten and dairy pose no problems...the sugar does.  I am not happy using mannitol or erythritol or any of those artificial sweeteners...they give me severe digestive problems.   But I can tolerate stevia very nicely.  The only problem is that there doesn't seem to be much sweetened with this ingredient.
       
      I do have a carob/coconut oil/peanut butter/stevia candy of sorts.  I don't really like it all that much, but it does work.  That's about it.
       
      Has anyone any recipes for desserts using stevia?  Thanks.

      Ever since Todd talked making cupcakes I have been cupcake crazy. Although, I am not a cake maker but more of a pie person.
      My first dessert that I love that I make is my Coconut Cream Pie w/heavy whipped cream. I don't use low fat anything and probably angioplasties is necessary after this baby.
      My second is Peach Cobbler w/rich vanilla ice cream. I never met a cobbler that I didn't like, but peach is my favorite.
      I don't make these often because I wouldn't be able to get through the front door if I did.
      How about yours?
      .....Janet
