Short-cut Orange Souffle

Posted by admin | Desserts,Recipes,Vegetarian | Thursday 24 March 2011 5:58 am

This is a favorite dessert recipe of mine. It’s very simple, but you really, really need to work fast. I’ve had it scribbled over an envelope, literally for years and hadn’t typed it in here because I wanted to add photographs, but have discovered that working fast doesn’t allow for time for playing about with the camera. Will try for one soon, but until then, here goes.

200 ml of orange juice (2 small tetrapaks)
85 gms crystal jelly / jello ( 1 packet )
1 ltr pack Vanilla ice-cream
10 Crushed low-sweet or multi-grain biscuits
1 tablespoon butter
Orange slices or walnuts for garnish

Prepare a flat-ish serving dish by pressing the crushed biscuits mixed with butter along the bottom. You can of course eliminate this step altogether.

Take the ice cream out of the freezer before you start work and cut up into small chunks. Leave to soften naturally in a large mixing bowl.

Follow the instructions on the jelly packet. Just use the juice instead of water.

When the jelly crystals are completely dissolved, pour into the ice-cream, folding in rapidly. Don’t do any very vigorous mixing or you’ll liquefy the ice-cream too much and beat all the air out of it.

Pour the mixture into the prepared serving dish.

Put it into the freezer for 20 minutes, and then move to a lower shelf in the refrigerator.

Garnish with walnuts or orange pieces after it’s totally set. Serve cold.

    Note : This is the simplest combo but you can get creative. Use raspberry juice and raspberry flavored jelly, or apple juice and stewed apple / peach pieces.
