It takes a quick hand to make a Hot Vanilla Delight

One of the most important skills in the kitchen is timing. Getting things to come out just right means adding the right ingredient at just the right moment, or keeping a close eye on the clock when you have something in the oven. But usually a couple of minutes here or there isn't a big deal and probably won't ruin your latest creation. When it comes to this next dessert, however, every second counts... literally! If you're a fan of Baked Alaska, you'll want to try this next recipe that combines hot and cold in a very unique and delicious way. To make a Hot Vanilla Delight, you don't exactly need lightning reflexes, but a quick hand does help...

You'll need (for 1 portion):

  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
  • 2 slices brown bread
  • oil for frying
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • chocolate sauce
  • roasted almond slices

Here's how:

  1. Remove the crust from the bread slices and roll them flat with a rolling pin.
  2. Scoop out a single scoop of ice cream and freeze it until it is well-hardened.
  3. Place the hardened scoop of ice cream on a slice of flattened bread and lay the other slice on top. Now wrap the bread around the ice cream. Freeze the ice cream wrapped in bread until it is hard before continuing with the next step.
  4. Prepare some hot oil and deep fry the bread-covered ice cream for 15 seconds. Now roll it in the sugar and cinnamon mix.
  5. Top off your fried ice cream ball with chocolate sauce and almond slices. It's ready to serve!

It's a dessert that seems to defy the laws of physics. If your timing was right, you now have a yummy treat that's warm and crispy on the outside and cool and sweet on the inside. And once you've tried it, you'll never look at ice cream the same way again... Enjoy!
