Yes, I decided we needed to take ice cream sandwiches to the next level.
Lets toast up nice thick slices of banana bread so the dates start to caramelise and the walnuts crispen on the edges. Lets make a rich, deliriously creamy, custard ice cream infused with cinnamon. Scoop it up and lay it happily between the banana bread slices. Finally, lavish on lashings of thick, caramel date sauce. Needless to say, these little sandwiches do not last long. A melting ingredient requires urgent consumption, of course!
I hope you will enjoy these. Here are a few tips if you are low on time and high on sugar-cravings! I have listed the banana bread recipe in my previous post. You are welcome to use this or can often buy banana bread at bakeries or even the supermarket. The ice cream can be made from scratch and frozen in an ice cream maker or using the freezer and stirring the mix occasionally as it freezes. Otherwise, you could also buy good quality, vanilla ice cream, let it soften slightly and stir through ground cinnamon. Lastly, the date sauce is super quick. Just pitted dates in the food processor with either milk or almond milk, blended on high until the consistency is thick and gooey.
