Transform this classic snack into a creamy frozen delight.


Ingredients

  • 170 g strawberries , finely chopped
  • 1 cup 35% cream
  • 1/2 300-mL can sweetened condensed milk

Peanut Butter Layer

  • 1 cup 35% cream
  • 1/2 300-mL can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 tbsp smooth natural peanut butter
  • 1 304-g pkg Pound cake , such as Sara Lee, cut into 16 1/2-in.-thick slices

Instructions

  1. Line a 9×9-in. baking pan (or 8×8-in. for a slightly thicker ice cream layer) with plastic, leaving overhang on all sides.
  2. Strawberry Layer: Whirl strawberries in a food processor until puréed. Add purée to a medium saucepan set over medium. Cook, stirring constantly, until purée is the consistency of tomato paste and is reduced to about 3 tbsp, 5 to 7 min. Scrape into a small bowl. Freeze until completely cool, about 30 min.
  3. Beat 1 cup cream in a medium bowl, using an electric mixer on medium, until stiff peaks form, 2 to 4 min. Reduce speed to low and beat in ½ can sweetened condensed milk and strawberry purée just until combined. Mixture should be smooth and fluffy. Scrape mixture into prepared pan. Smooth top. Freeze until semi-firm, about 2 hrs.
  4. Peanut Butter Layer: Beat 1 cup cream in a medium bowl, using an electric mixer on medium, until stiff peaks form, 2 to 4 min. Reduce speed to low and beat in ½ can sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter just until combined. Mixture should be smooth and fluffy. Scrape mixture over frozen strawberry layer. Smooth top. Freeze until firm, about 6 hrs.
  5. Remove ice cream from pan by pulling up plastic. Cut into 8 rectangles. To serve, sandwich 1 ice cream slice between 2 cake slices. Serve immediately.

Kitchen tip

Toast pound cake, if desired. Arrange cake slices in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Broil in centre of oven, flipping halfway through, until golden, about 1 min per side.
