I knew this ice cream would be good but I ended up so happy with this Brandy Roasted Pink Lady® Apple Crumble Ice Cream. Chunks of Pink Lady® apples roasted in brandy and spices and a nutty oat crumble mixed in with the best vanilla ice cream you can get. Part pudding, part ice cream and completely delicious.

The 2019 season of everyone’s favourite apple, Pink Lady® is here and what better way to welcome the new season with a delicious dessert that is sure to make all the apple lovers and ice cream lovers happy at the same time. I wanted to take a dessert as classic as an apple crumble and give it a bit of makeover. The ice cream is great eaten on its own or end your next dinner party or Sunday lunch with a stack of freshly made waffles and big scoops of the Brandy Roasted Pink Lady® Apple Crumble Ice Cream slowly melting over the hot waffles.

Bonus, of course, is that you use shop bought ice cream for the base so all you need to worry about is roasting the apple and making the crumble.

Apples and brandy is such a wonderful combination and the brandy adds a deep layer of flavour while the apples roast. (The alcohol will be cooked off by the time you make the ice cream.) Stir the apples a few times while they roast, mashing it with a veggie masher to break down the pieces. But do not mash too fine, you want apple chunks in the ice cream. Bake the crumble to a dark golden brown to maximise flavour. Remember that freezing mutes flavour so you want to maximise the apple and crumble flavour as much as possible.

I kept adding additional sugar to the minimum. The apples are sweet and the ice cream as well so the crumble and roasted apples do not have to be too sweet on top of that. And keep a quarter of the oat crumble aside so that you can sprinkle it on top of the ice cream for more texture and flavour.

Born of good earth, pure water and clear skies a crisp Pink Lady® apple represents life at its natural green best. Raised with love, Pink Lady® apples are allowed to linger longer on their trees to absorb more of nature’s goodness and develop their characteristic radiance and sweet refreshing taste.
