End of the day treat to wrap up my hubby’s birthday celebrations is this yummy desert, no cake this time cause I guess we had enough cakes and cookies over the last month.
Fried ice cream is our favorite dessert that we end up each meal ,though full, at the most delicious restaurant in Limassol, Meze Tavern. We usually order one portion and end up fighting for the last bite. Though owner doesn’t give her recipe to anyone but I’ve been searching for something close to it for so long, all recipes I found usually coat ice cream balls with crushed cornflakes or coconut but it’s not the same as the one we eat, last night I came across one that uses pancake mix so I decided to try to make it for our special occasion.
For a first trial it was not bad at all, gone in seconds actually, may thicken the mix next time or freeze ice cream for a longer period.
It’s an easy recipe but must be done and eaten at once, shape ice cream into balls then coat it completely with crushed biscuits and freeze for 3-4 hours, make pancake batter ( I added some orange zest for flavor) ,heat oil very well, coat ice cream balls with batter and into hot oil till golden.
Serve with maple syrup on top.
As I said they were good but not exactly like Meze Tavern’s ,hope one day Madame Kicoulla will share her secret recipe with me 😍
