Mini Ice Cream Waffle Sandwiches
We know that British Summer is more rain than sun. But this indulgent treat will cheer you up rain or shine.
| Ingredients |
• 2 cups mixed berries
• 1/4 cup granulated sugar
• 1 tablespoon orange juice
• 1 tablespoon cornstarch
• 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
• 2 teaspoon baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
• 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
• 1 large egg
• 1 1/2 cups lukewarm milk
• 1/3 cup butter melted
• 2 pints of vanilla ice cream
| Instructions |
For the Berry Compote
|1| In a medium saucepan on medium heat, bring the berries, sugar, and orange juice to a low boil. Continue to cook for 5 minutes, mashing the berries with a spoon against the side of the pan, until the berries are soft and half of the mixture is juice.
|2| Add a tablespoon of cold water to the cornstarch and whisk. Add the cornstarch slurry to the fruit and quickly whisk, preventing any lumps from forming. Turn the heat to high and boil until the sauce has thickened, roughly 1 minute.
|3| Remove the berries from the stove and place into a bowl. Place into the fridge until cool.
For The Waffles
|1| Preheat the waffle iron to a medium darkness setting
|2| In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sea salt, and sugar.
|3| In a medium bowl, whisk the egg, milk and butter.
|4| Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined.
|5| Cook the waffles as per your waffle iron directions
|6| Remove the waffles from the iron and cut each into 4 squares
For The Sandwiches
|1| Cut a slit down the side of the ice cream container. Peel away the container until you are left with only the ice cream. Lay the ice cream on its side and with a sharp knife. Place a waffle on top of the ice cream round and cut it into a square.
|2| While the waffles are still warm, assemble the sandwiches. Place a tablespoon of berry compote on top of the ice cream, and then squish the waffle together.
Serve immediately. Waffle sandwiches don't store well.
