After Eight Icecream Cake
Why I Love This Recipe
This is a really refreshing Dessert and very delicious. I got this recipie from a recipie club in Iceland that I helped put on the market at the time and it got really popular. This is one of my many favourites from that time that I dont want to loose.
Ingredients You'll Need
200g Whole Hazelnuts
125g Icing Sugar
Filling (Top Layer):
3 Deci Litres Whipping Cream
100g Dark Chocholate
8 pieces After Eight Chocholate
5 to 6 pieces After Eight Chocholates
2 Decilitres Whipping Cream
Bottom layer:Grind the Hazelnuts very finely. Beat eggwhites and Icingsugar stiff, add the hazelnuts carefully.
Fold a baking sheet in a 24cm Ø Springform (a round cake form that you can open the sides of (checked if my Icelandic Term is the American Term at Williams-Sonoma.com and it is :)))) put the egg mixtue in and divide evenly. Bake in a 175°C Preheated oven for 20 minutes. Cool
Filling (Top Layer): Heat 1/2 Deci litre of the cream and melt the chocholate in it. Let most of the heat cool off. Whip the Eggyolks well, whip the rest of the cream and combine with the eggyolks, then combine the melted chocholate mixture.
Put the Bottom Layer on a serving plate. Put the frame of the form around it and close. Then pour the chocholate mixture on top and freeze for at least 24 hours.
Decoration: Take the cake out of the freezer one hour before serving. Whip the Cream and put in a pastry bag (I love to use Fun Gun that I bought in New York when I was 20)
Put nice cream dots tightly together on the edge of the cake and one in the middle. Slice the After Eight pieces like sandwiches so that it makes triangles and divide decorately inside the circle of the cream with the triangle standing. Maybe a couple of mint leaves in the middle.
Have fun making it and enjoy
