Cassata Recipe

I have wanted to make cassata ever since I was a little girl but I did not realise how easy it can be!  A friend of ours used to make it for my mum fairly often and I have been meaning to ask her for the recipe!  Anyway, I googled cassata and found this recipe and was happy with how it turned out.  It is extremely easy to make and can be tweaked to add your favourite ingredients.  I will definitely give it a go again!

Christmas cassata
The original recipe is from Woman's Day and I found it on the Interenet here. I tweaked it as the recipe did not seem to fill the pan enough.


2L vanilla ice-cream, softened
2/3 cup halved glacé cherries - red and green for fesitive colours
2L chocolate ice-cream, softened
200g Toblerone, finely chopped
1/3 cup toasted slivered almonds
Grated chocolate, to serve

Line a round 23cm spring-form pan with baking paper.  Spray a little bit of oil to help the paper to line the pan properly.

In a large bowl, combine 1.3L vanilla ice-cream with cherries. Pour into prepared pan.  Cover and freeze until firm.

In another bowl, combine 700ml chocolate ice-cream and remaining vanilla ice-cream with Toblerone. Spoon evenly over vanilla ice-cream layer. Cover and freeze until firm.

In a third bowl, combine remaining chocolate ice-cream with toasted almonds. Spoon evenly over Toblerone layer, smoothing top. Cover and freeze until firm.

Remove from freezer 5 minutes before serving. Remove from pan. Cut into wedges to serve. Sprinkle with grated chocolate.

I hope you all had a wonderful blessed Christmas!!
