Too good for snacking! Our jumbo Ice Cream Sandwich is twice the size of traditional versions, making it the perfect sweet treat to enjoy as a dessert. Even if it tastes oh-so-creamy and indulgent, our frozen sarnie comes in at just 299 calories per serving. How delicious is that?

We’ve skipped higher calorie versions for a low-calorie chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream filling, but there’s nothing to stop you playing around with alternative low-calorie flavours (just be sure to adjust any calories accordingly, if you’re counting!). The sandwich layers are made with two homemade rounds of fatless sponge, so every bite of this extra-special treat is so much lighter than it looks.

Psst! We have a few tips for you… You’ll want to clear a good amount of space in your freezer, as part of our recipe involves putting a baking tray or large plate inside. So you can work quickly and avoid a melty filling, be sure to have a large sharp knife, chopping board and scissors at the ready before step 12 – trust us, these tips are real life-savers!

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 160ºC.

Step 2

Spray a non-stick 4-hole Yorkshire pudding tray (each hole 10cm in diameter), with low-calorie cooking spray. Use to grease the holes thoroughly, then line the base of each with a disc of non-stick baking paper.

Step 2 pinchofnom.com

Step 3

Place the eggs, granulated sweetener and caster sugar in a large mixing bowl. Whisk with a handheld electric whisk for about 10 minutes, until pale, thick and creamy. The mixture should be thick enough so that ‘ribbon’ trails are left on the surface when the whisk is removed.

Step 3 pinchofnom.com

Step 4

Sift the flour into the mixture. Using a large metal spoon, gently fold in until the flour is just mixed in and the mixture is lump free (don’t over mix the mixture, otherwise you will knock out the air you have incorporated!).

Step 4 pinchofnom.com Step 4 pinchofnom.com

Step 5

To make the chocolate sponge mixture: scrape half of the plain sponge mixture into a medium bowl. Sift the cocoa powder into the bowl and gently fold in until just mixed and lump free. Again, take care not to over mix and knock out the air you have incorporated.

Step 5 pinchofnom.com Step 5 pinchofnom.com Step 5 pinchofnom.com

Step 6

Divide half of the plain mixture between the 4 holes in the lined Yorkshire pudding tray and gently spread out.

Step 6 pinchofnom.com

Step 7

Divide the chocolate mixture in half and place in a swirl on top of the plain mixture in the Yorkshire pudding tray.

Step 7 pinchofnom.com

Step 8

Place in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, until golden and risen. The sponge should spring back when lightly pressed and no indent should be left.

Step 9

Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the Yorkshire pudding tray for about 5-10 minutes. When cooled a little, use a round-bladed knife to run around the edge and gently ease the sponges out of the tray. Place on a cooling rack to cool completely, then carefully peel off the baking paper from the bottom of the sponges.

Step 9 pinchofnom.com

Step 10

Wash the Yorkshire pudding tray, then grease and line again. Use the remaining plain and chocolate sponge mixture to fill the 4 holes again as before.

Step 10 pinchofnom.com

Step 11

Bake, cool completely and remove the lining paper as before.

Step 12

Take the tub of ice cream out of the freezer and remove the lid and foil seal. Place on its side on a chopping board and snip through the cardboard rim with a pair of scissors. Pull open the seam on the tub to expose the ice cream then discard the cardboard tub.

Step 12 pinchofnom.com Step 12 pinchofnom.com Step 12 pinchofnom.com

Step 13

Working quickly, use a large, sharp knife to slice the ice cream into 4 thick slices about 2cm wide.

Step 13 pinchofnom.com

Step 14

Quickly sandwich each slice of ice cream between 2 sponge rounds.

Step 14 pinchofnom.com

Step 15

Place the finished ice cream sandwiches in a single layer on a baking tray or large plate and place in the freezer for about 15 minutes, just to firm up a little before serving. Serve and eat at once.

Recipe notes

Tip: Make space in your freezer for a baking tray or large plate before starting the recipe.
Tip: Get your chopping board, scissors and large sharp knife ready before starting step 12, as you will need to work quickly once you have removed the ice cream from the freezer so that it doesn't start melting.
Tip: It will be easier to remove the baking paper if you let the sponges cool first.
