What is no churn ice cream?

It means you do not need an ice cream maker or raw eggs. Instead, you will need a mixer, three ingredients, plus flavour. I used vanilla, the most popular ice cream flavour in America. 

What keeps this no-churn egg-free ice cream soft?

To keep this ice cream soft, I added whipping cream. It is the cream that will keep the ice cream softer.

This frozen gluten-free dessert is easy to make, is budget friendly and is made with ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.

only 11 ingredients

Yes, this gluten-free brownie ice cream lasagna recipe is made with only 11 ingredients plus salt. You will need; a gluten-free flour blend, cocoa powder, whipping cream, condensed milk, butter, olive oil, chocolate chips, egg, sweetener (I used coconut sugar), vanilla, baking soda and salt.

Step-by-step instructions;

Make the brownie batter. This takes 5 minutes when using an electric mixer. First, be sure the butter and the egg are at room temperature.

Spread the batter on a lined rimmed baking sheet or baking pan and bake for 12 minutes. Cool

While the brownie cake is baking, make the no-churn ice cream. It is best to use an electric mixer to whip the whipping cream until you have SOFT PEAKS. Next, add condensed milk, vanilla and a pinch of salt and whisk again until everything is incorporated and has soft peaks. 

By now, the brownie cake is cooled, and it’s time to assemble the ice cream lasagna. First, line a standard loaf pan with plastic wrap. 

Slice the cake into three even pieces. Take the first piece and crumble it with your hands to create the base of the lasagna, pressing the crumbs on the bottom of the pan.

Scoop out half the ice cream and spread it evenly over the brownie crumbs. Top with a second layer of brownie crumbs, pressing them gently into the ice cream.

Finish with the ice cream and slices of the last piece of brownie. Place the ice cream lasagna in the freezer for 30 minutes. Do not cover the dessert.

After 30 minutes in the freezer, top the cake with chocolate ganache. The ganache takes about 3 minutes to make in a double boiler or over low heat in a heavy bottom small saucepan by melting the butter with chocolate. 

Place the pan in the freezer for 15 minutes without covering, then cover tightly with plastic wrap. The 15 minutes in the freezer will solidify the chocolate and will not stick to the wrap when you wrap it.

Substitutions and tips;

Egg; flax egg

Vanilla; 1/4 cup cocoa powder or 1 tablespoon of instant coffee melted in 2 teaspoons of hot milk

Coconut sugar; granulated sugar

Baking soda; 1 teaspoon baking powder

Chocolate chips; 4 oz. of chopped good quality gluten-free chocolate bar

Whipping cream; to make soft peaks use the lowest speed setting to avoid over-whipping the cream

Rimmed baking sheet; you can use same size baking pan

Leftover condensed milk; you can freeze it for future use

Standard loaf pan for the cake; you can use a round spring form pan lined with plastic wrap

The layers; you can make this dessert into 3 layers by dividing the brownie cake into 4 pieces and the ice cream into 3

 

 At what temperature should you serve ice cream cake?

It would be best if you served the ice cream between 6 F – 10 F. To get the entire brownie ice cream lasagna dessert to this temperature, allow the ice cream to sit at room temperature for 10 – 20 minutes before serving.

The perfect frozen summer dessert to keep in the freezer for when the temperatures are rising! A sprinkle of cocoa powder just before serving makes this frozen dessert even prettier.
