Ice Cream Bombe: Christmas Pudding

Ice Cream Bombe Method:

1.) Soak the dried fruit with the brandy and dark brown sugar and leave overnight.

2.) If you are short of time microwave the fruit on high for 2-3 minutes.

3.) Line a 2-litre pudding basin with clingfilm with enough overhang to cover the top of the pudding.

4.) Whip the cream and yogurts to soft peaks, add the frozen berries and stir.

5.) Add the soaked fruit, mix well.

6.) Spoon into the pudding basin, push the mixture down and level off the surface.

7.) Ensure the clingfilm covers the top.

8.) Place in the freezer overnight or at least for half a day.

9.) Before serving remove from freezer and allow to thaw a little at room temperature.

10.) Invert the basin onto a serving plate and tip over to release.

You may find a palate knife useful to ease out the edges.


You can decant by dipping the basin in a larger bowl of warm water, hold for 30 seconds and release.

To Make The Sauce:

Place the cranberries and caster sugar in a saucepan and gently heat until all the sugar has dissolved.

Make a paste with the cornflour and water and gradually add this to the cranberries and sugar.

Allow to thicken and then remove from the heat.

Pour the sauce over the bombe before serving and allow to trickle down.
