I have a friend who is obsessed with orange dremcicles. Every time they are on the menu, I know I can always count on her to order them in some form of another (drinks, jello shots, popsicles). Much to my amazement, she made this cake over the summer. In turn, it has inspired me to cream an ice cream version (of an ice cream cake?) I wanted to create a subtle orange flavor, so I did not put as much juice in as my lemon ice cream. This created a less icey base as well. I would recommend pairing it with a barbecue hamburger dinner.
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
0.5 cup sugar
0.3 cup orange juice
Zest from 1 orange
Dash of vanilla extract
In a sauce pan create the base by combining the heavy cream, milk, and sugar. Whisk until the sugar has dissolved.
Add in the orange juice, orange zest, and vanilla. Stir until combined
Add the base to your ice cream maker and churn to the manufactures instructions.
Refrigerate for a few hours.
Serve and enjoy!
