Ice-Cream on a Cold Day

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuh

I know I usually have a cookie recipe all ready for Eid for others to try. I'm sorry.. things this year are just beyond crazy.. more mentally than physically.. so no cookie recipe, but I have a cute, fun recipe.. which the kids will love. I'll be honest.. I like it too, and enjoy an ice-cream every time! They are a big hit at bake sales.


There is a recipe around where you fill the cone with batter and bake it. I personally do not like that method.. for the following reasons: filling it with batter and making sure they stand while carrying it to the oven is an art on its own!, the chances of batter overflowing while baking is great (reviews from others)..and this makes the cone look messy, and it doesn't keep that that the cone gets soggy.

Here is how I make my Ice-Cream Cupcake. I use a mini cupcake pan. One and half cupcake per ice-cream. The cupcakes are a perfect fit, and just enough cake to balance everything off. Any cupcake recipe works fine, this is an easy one - very easy.

Makes 16 ice-creams

8 tblsp butter - softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup flour
Optional: pink food colouring

:: Preheat oven to 350F (180C).
:: Put all ingredients in a bowl, using an electrical mixer, beat together until smooth.
:: Fill all 24 mini cups (no liner needed) until batter is done.
:: Bake until golden.

Butter cream frosting (approx. 2 cups)
16 flat-bottom ice-cream cones
16 red candies or cherries

:: Cut a cupcake in half, place half in the bottom of the cone.
:: put a little frosting (acts as glue) on and place a whole cupcake on top.
:: Pipe a swirl of frosting on, and decorate (be creative).

Wa'alaykum as-salaam wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dearest sister Umm Ibrahim,

Oh, they always do.. alhumduliLlah. Give it a try if you get the chance. You can also get the kids to decorate them themselves, like a craft and snack in one :D

Jazaki'Allahu khair for stopping by.

Love Farhana
