INGREDIENTS:

  • Strawberry Ice Cream:
  • 12 ounces fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Swiss Meringue:
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Pinch of cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Brownie Base:
  • Your favorite brownie mix, baked in a tray 1/2- 3/4 inch thick, cut into 3 1/2-inch circles


  • METHOD:

    Toss together strawberries, lemon juice and 1/4 cup sugar in a bowl.
    Leave to macerate for 1-2 hours.
    Crush with fingers or a fork.

    In a large mixing bowl with either a whisk or an electric mixer, whip eggs and remaining 3/4 cup sugar until pale and fluffy, about 1 minute.
    Whisk in milk, cream and vanilla until fully combined.

    Pour base into ice cream maker and churn for 20 minutes.
    While still churning, pour in macerated strawberries and churn 5-10 minutes more.
    Pour into an airtight container and freeze for at least 4 hours before scooping.

    Prepare the meringue.
    In a heatproof bowl fitted over a saucepan of simmering water, whisk sugar, egg whites and cream of tartar constantly until dissolved, about 2 minutes.
    Remove from heat and whisk with an electric mixer until stiff and glossy, about 10 minutes.
    Whisk in vanilla.
    Use immediately.

    To assemble: Place a packed scoop of ice cream (about 3-4 ounces) on brownie base.
    Using a spoon or offset spatula, spread meringue all over ice cream and brownie.
    Use a swirling motion to create texture.
    Toast meringue with a torch and enjoy.
