Delicious Summer Ice Cream Recipe…

Today the lovely Natasha from Nevie Pie Cakes shares with us this fab ice cream recipe… Toasted Oatmeal Ice Cream.

In this weather its the perfect summer treat… Im so hungry even looking at these photos!!


This is a recipe I used to make as a teenager, it is from an old Marks and Spencer cookbook that I still treasure.

It sounds unusual, but it is delicious, and you can fool yourself into believing that it is healthy, as it contains oats! The oats and sugar turn into praline, and give the ice cream a gorgeous nutty, toffee taste. You must really watch the oat/sugar mixture while it is under the grill, as it burns very easily!

I had intended to make use of my ice cream maker, but it had lain idle for so long in the back of a cupboard that the liquid in the freezer bowl had started to leak. So I used the old fashioned ‘taking it out of the freezer regularly and beating it’ method. You only need to do this three or four times, but just make sure that the ice cream is semi-frozen when you do, or it won’t be effective.

Try adding the ice cream to some chocolate cookies – they make the perfect ice cream sandwich!

Thanks Natasha! Who cares …

Festive Tipple…

Christmas time is here! To celebrate, we welcome back Natasha from Nevie-Pie Cakes who has shared a scrummy homemade Irish Cream recipe with us…I’ll definitely be giving this one a try!


Well Christmas is just around the corner, and rather than risk the bun fight of the shopping malls why not create some homemade presents this year! I know that the phrase ‘homemade’ can conjurer up images of sub-standard gifts, when I was a child I made peppermint creams every year, they were neon green and a variety of unrecognisable shapes, but a homemade gift can be beautiful and delicious.
I have been making Irish cream for many years and I have to say it’s one of the most gorgeous drinks I have ever quaffed. It brings to mind the nectar of the gods because they surely would be tempted by such a rich creamy chocolaty alcohol fueled tipple.
This recipe for Irish cream was given to me about 25 years ago by a vicar, (so surely it is blessed) and has been made nearly every year since. It always goes down a storm and, even if you are not a fan of the commercial stuff, I promise, you will love this. It is so easy to make, taste like heaven, and you must keep the biggest bottle for yourself.
