Christmas Theme - Jacinta's Dessert (3 of 3)This was the final dessert in our Christmas spread, and is based on this ice cream pudding recipe from Baker’s Corner.

To the icecream mixture I also folded in a raspberry sauce (see below).

Note: the ratio of water to sugar in the praline recipe were incorrect. I made mine with 1 cup of sugar and approx 1/3 cup water. You can stir the mixture until the sugar dissolves but then it must not be stirred.

This made a very sweet icecream – next time I would add the raspberries but without any extra sugar.

Ingredients – Raspberry Sauce

  • Approx half a cup of frozen raspberries
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2-3 tbsps water

Method

  1. Mix all ingredients in a saucepan until the sugar is dissolved, bring to the boil and stir until liquid is reduced by about a third.
  2. Cool and fold into icecream when adding the white chocolate.

Christmas Theme - Kerri's Dessert (2 of 2)One of the highlights of our Christmas spread, this recipe is based on a Southern Buttermilk Spice Cake recipe from About Food.

Instead of brown sugar frosting, it was cream cheese based. Use equal parts cream cheese and butter, with enough icing sugar to get a frosting consistency.

Also, it was made with this gluten-free flour mix, xanthan gum and extra baking powder.

As is our Christmas tradition (see 2013’s or 2012’s for example), we had a Christmas supper, with Kerri hosting and Jacinta also providing tasty treats on Monday 1st December. No dinner courses – just dessert!

Above you can see the amazing spread of deliciousness. There was Jacinta’s sweet potato tarts and eggnog panna cotta with balsamic raspberries, Kerri’s sugar cookies with raspberry jam and spice cake with cream cheese frosting, and to finish we found room in our tummies for Jacinta’s white chocolate ice cream pudding with pistachio praline.
