Do you have a big sweet tooth? This delicious three layered ice cream should put a stop to your late night cravings. The famous Fürst Pückler ice cream was named after the count Hermann von Pückler-Muskau. This ice cream was not invented by him, but named in his honour by the Royal Prussian court cook Louis Ferdinand Jungius in 1839. This ice cream consists of three tasteful layers- chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.
1 oz. dark chocolate
2 tbsp. whipping cream
7-8 strawberries, hulled
6 cups vanilla ice cream, softened
Whipped cream (optional)
1. Melt the chocolate with the cream, stirring until smooth. Mix two cups of the ice cream with the chocolate until well blended. Pour into the bottom of a 9×5 pan, smooth with a spatula, and freeze for about 2 hours.
2. Layer 2 cups softened vanilla ice cream over the chocolate layer and smooth with a spatula. Freeze for one hour or, if it is firm enough, add the strawberry layer right away.
3. Blend strawberries into a puree. (There should be about 1/4 cup.) Mix puree with the remaining vanilla ice cream. Pour over hardened vanilla layer, cover, and freeze for another hour before serving.
4. To serve: turn over and remove from pan onto plate. Cut into slices and serve with sweetened whipped cream or fresh strawberries, if desired.
