This Monday marked the start of National Ice Cream week and to celebrate The Hour put it’s own unique twist on the old summertime favourite; the Knickerbocker Glory.
Traditionally made with ice-cream and served in tall decorative glasses, these holiday treats have evolved into various different shapes and sizes over the years.
Whether you prefer to add some mixed fruit, chocolate chips or even some Scottish Tablet there is a Knickerbocker Glory recipe for everyone to enjoy in the hot summer months.
Sharyl Brown from the Biscuit Café gave her own top tips on creating the ultimate Sundae treat, complete with double helpings of Raspberry sauce.
“I like to make my Knickerbocker Glory with a Scottish twist,” said Sharyl. “It’s a nice easy one to do and for anyone to do at home.
“There is no original recipe for a Knickebocker Glory, but traditionally it does contain ice cream.”
For Sharyl’s recipe you will need two different flavours of ice-cream (Vanilla and Raspberry work best), fresh raspberries, raspberry sauce, Scottish tablet (chopped), squirt cream, fresh cherries and toasted oats.
Put a few fresh raspberries in the base of the sundae glass, add the fudge sauce and place a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Next up add some raspberry sauce, a scoop of raspberry ice cream, a few more fresh raspberries and the last of the sauce.
Place a scoop of vanilla ice cream in the glass before crumbling on some chopped tablet and finish off with a sprinkle of toasted oats, whipped cream and a fresh cherry.
Not only will it taste great all the way to the bottom, but it’s also a great way to get the kids involved with making dessert.
Sharyl said: “It’s always nice to put different surprises through the layers. You don’t know what you are going to get next.
“Remember it doesn’t have to be in a tall glass. Anything around the house will do.”
