Happy Birthday, IGGPPC!
Birthdays are one of those special occasions that we can eat, eat and eat whatever we want. Savory or sweet, the sky is the limit.
The title says it all. Ice cream and GIANT cookie: it’s the mix I choose to celebrate the IGGPPC birthday.
Let’s get to the recipe and what we need!
Ice Cream & Giant Cookie Birthday Cake Recipe
- Cake pan/springform pan (with no holes and that the sides open) 10 – 12 inch
- Baking paper
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tsps cornflour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ¾ cups butter
- ¾ cups brown sugar
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 ¼ cups chocolate chips (or just chop the chocolate yourself)
- 2 boxes of your favorite ice cream
Pre-heat your oven at 180ºC (350F). Prep your cake pan by covering the base with baking paper, secure with the sides of the cake; no need to grease it.
Using a food processor, add the butter and sugars, and cream them together for about 2 mins. Next add the egg and mix for 1 more minute.
Add the all the dry ingredients and mix until they are just combined. Next fold in the chocolate chips.
Transfer the dough for your already prepped cake pan, and carefully, with your fingers, a spoon or a cup, flatten the dough.
Remove the ice cream from the freezer, so it gets soft to use.
Bake for about 20 to 25mins, depending on your oven. Next let it cool at room temperature. To speed a little this part, I put it in the fridge for 1 hour.
Open you cake pan and add to the sides baking paper, just use a long rectangle of baking paper, circle your cookie, and close the pan.
By now the ice cream is ready to use. Add the ice cream to the cake pan, on top of the cookie. Spread it until is a level layer of ice cream. Put the cake pan, with the cookie and ice cream in the freezer for about 3 hours. After this time, open the pan, remove the metal ring, the baking paper and transfer the “cake” to the serving dish.
It’s ready to be eaten!
I picked a brownie ice cream.
You can serve with chocolate ganache, strawberries, caramel sauce, whatever toppings you desire. Again, it’s a birthday party, the sky is the limit.
