Rosie Makes An Ice Cream Cake For Mama Hawthorne On Her 95th Birthday.

Rosie's going to give you a wonderful recipe for a delicious ice cream cake dessert. I made this for Mama Hawthorne's birthday.
My ingredients: 2 cups firmly packed brown sugar 2/3 cup flour 2 eggs 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 cup chopped pecans
Mix all ingredients together.
This will be a very thick batter.
Spoon the mixture into a buttered 9 x 13 baking dish.
You need to use your hand to press it out evenly.
Bake for 25 minutes in a pre-heated 350 degree oven. Oooh. Look how it rose! Don't bother with the toothpick test. It's supposed to be gooey. Let cool completely.
I chilled both my bowl and my beaters (the chilling helps the cream whip better), then whipped up a pint of whipping cream along with a little sugar (maybe 2 - 3 tablespoons) and a tablespoon of vanilla.
When the cake is cooled, crumble it into pieces and ...
... fold them into the whipped cream.
Spread into a clean 9 x 13 dish and freeze for at least 4 hours before serving.
Here's the shot I took at home. When I served the cake to Mama Hawthorne, I put a candle on it and Sister Hawthorne wanted me to light it. Errr ... Sister Hawthorne, I don't think that's advisable what with the oxygen tank and all. Sister would have blown us all to Kingdom Come with one strike of a match. Mama Hawthorne thought that was pretty funny.

In the 2nd picture down, it looks like a bit of butter, yet butter is not mentioned in the ingredients. You holding out on us?

RE The 2nd pic down.

What looks like buttah,
is actually the teaspoon of baking powdah.

Oh, ye of little faith.

Rosie Hawthorne said...

My mother has squarish measuring spoons. I have rounder ones.

Rosie Hawthorne said...

Yes, Sistah. I meant baking sodah, not powdah.
Thank you.
