6-8 portions
Metric Imperial


  • 2 1/4 cups double cream
  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 10 oz left-over Christmas cake, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup pure Canadian maple syrup (preferably golden colour for its delicate flavour)


  1. Tip the cream, condensed milk and maple syrup into a large bowl and use an electric whisk to beat until it holds peaks.
  2. Add the Christmas cake and use a large spoon to fold it, evenly distributing through the cream mix.
  3. Tip into a loaf tin or container and freeze for at least 5 hours, overnight or until frozen solid.
  4. Remove from the freezer for 5 minutes before serving, then scoop and enjoy.

Deceptively easy to make, this no-churn ice cream is an indulgent treat and a great use for leftover Christmas cake. The delicate sweetness of the maple syrup provides the perfect pairing to the cream and condensed milk.
