Wall’s Cream of Cornish layered coffee gelato
Vanilla ice cream Tiramisu
300ml cold strong black coffee, preferably espresso
350g Wall’s Cream of Cornish vanilla ice cream
5 tablespoons Amaretto liqueur
2 medium eggs, separated
3 tablespoons caster sugar
250g mascarpone cheese
About 24 savoiardi biscuits (sponge fingers)
Cocoa powder, for dusting
Pour the cold coffee into a large bowl, mix in 3 tablespoons of the Amaretto and set aside.
Place the Wall’s Cream of Cornish vanilla ice cream in a bowl and with the help of a fork, press down on the ice cream until you get the texture of whipped cream. Set aside.
Beat the egg yolks and sugar in another large bowl for about 5 minutes until thick and pale. Fold in the mascarpone cheese.
Use a metal spoon or a fork to gently fold in the vanilla ice cream.
Beat the egg whites in a third large bowl until soft peaks form. Fold them quickly, but gently, into the cream mixture, then add the remaining liqueur, trying not to lose the volume.
Dip each biscuit into the coffee for just 2 seconds and no longer, otherwise the biscuits will go soggy. Drain and use to cover the bottom of a glass dessert bowl about 8cm across.
Spread some of the cream mixture over the biscuits, then repeat the process. Smooth the surface with the cream mixture, cover with cling film and chill for about 2 hours to allow the flavours to develop.
Just before serving (and not before or the cocoa powder will go bitter), remove the cling film and dust with cocoa powder.
200g Wall’s Viennetta Vanilla
800g fresh ripe strawberriesÃ¢â‚¬Â¨1 tablespoon icing sugar, sifted
200g thick Greek-style yoghurt Ã¢â‚¬Â¨6 ready made plain meringues
Wash and dry the strawberries, remove any green bits. If they are large, cut in half.
Place 600g of strawberries in a large bowl. Dust with icing sugar, gently mix and chill for an hour. Ã¢â‚¬Â¨Ã¢â‚¬Â¨Place the remaining 200g of strawberries in a food processor and blitz into a purée, adding a dash of liqueur to taste, and chill. Ã¢â‚¬Â¨Ã¢â‚¬Â¨Cut the Wall’s Viennetta into 1cm cubes and place into a large bowl, fold in the yoghurt, and chill.
Roughly crush the meringues into bite-sized pieces and set aside. Ã¢â‚¬Â¨Ã¢â‚¬Â¨When you are ready to serve, gently toss the Viennetta, meringue and strawberries together.
Divide the lot between 4 tall dessert glasses.
Drizzle over the strawberry purée.
