Tutti frutti ice cream bombe

  • Total Time

  • Serves



Deliciously creamy Cointreau ice cream filled with papaya, mango, cherries, almonds and hazlenuts shaped into a bombe. This is a real treat to serve up to all of your friends and family.


  1. First make the custard by placing the milk and honey in a heavy-based saucepan and slowly bring to the boil.

  2. Meanwhile, using an electric whisk, whisk the egg yolks and caster sugar together until pale and creamy, which should take about 2-3 minutes.

  3. Gradually pour the hot milk over the egg mixture, whisking all the time,  Then return to the pan and, over a low heat, cook gently. Whisk constantly, for about 5-8 minutes, until it thickens slightly.  Do not allow to boil.  Once it is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, remove and place in a basin of cold water. Stir occasionally until cold.

  4. Then, toast the nuts by placing under a hot grill until golden brown.  Watch carefully, so they do not burn.

  5. Place the glace cherries and dried fruits in a bowl, cover with the Cointreau and stir.

  6. Once the custard is cold, whisk in the mascarpone, using electric beaters, until smooth.  Stir in the nuts and fruit then, once well combined, tip into a 1 litre pudding basin.  Cover with cling film and place in a freezer - preferably on 'fast freeze' for at least 6 hours.

  7. To serve, dip the basin briefly into hot water and invert onto a serving dish.  If it is freshly made, it can be served at once; otherwise leave in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to soften up a little.

  8. For the sauce place everything in a saucepan and slowly bring to the boil, then bubble away for 4 - 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until thick and glossy.  Serve hot with the bombe.
