Happy, happy, happy, happy … whatever the happy occasion, this decadent grain free ice cream cake is certain to put a big smile on your favorite faces!
After all, cake and ice cream go together like bacon and eggs, bread and butter, peaches and cream … I think you get the point. So why not just put the two together and make it easier and more fun too!
That’s why anytime we’ve got a special something-to-celebrate going on around here, this is one of our favorite go-to desserts – it’s certain to make any occasion an even happier one!
And, you have several options for making this delightful treat. As shown at left, I originally began my ice cream cake making tradition using my decadent fudgy brownie recipe as the base for the cake and topped it with homemade vanilla ice cream and a sprinkling of raw cacao bits.
Recently, my friend Kristin shared her amazingly rich almond flour chocolate cake recipe. So to celebrate my youngest’s 12th birthday, I decided to use her cake as the base and then topped it with my newest creation – Fresh Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (see recipe below). WOW! It’s definitely my family’s newfound favorite!
So whether you have something special to celebrate, or simply want to surprise your loved ones with an extra special treat, you can bet this easy grain-free ice cream cake is certain to bring a lot of happiness to the table!
