Would You Like Chocolate With That? ~ Chocolate Malt Ice-Cream Cake

Yes, that is a picture of the ice-cream cake, and, yes, I made it, and can do it, too!! I made it a couple of years ago for my son's birthday and again recently for a church thing. My son declared it his favorite cake ever.

The last couple of weeks had easy recipes, so now you can tackle this one. I found it on the internet somewhere a couple of years ago. Obviously, this is something you try for a special occasion, maybe once a year? It has a few steps, but isn't too difficult and looks so impressive's...y.u.m.m.y!

Chocolate Malt Ice-Cream Cake

1-1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chocolate fudge topping
1-1/2 quarts (6 cups) vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
2 cups whoppers, coarsely chopped
1 cup whipping (heavy) cream
1/4 cup chocolate fudge topping

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease bottom and side of springform pan, 9x3 or 10x2-3/4 (I used a 10 in. springform pan), with shortening; lightly flour. In large bowl, mix flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Add water, oil, vinegar, and vanilla. Stir vigorously about 1 minute or until well blended. Immediately pour into pan.
2. Bake 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
3. Spread 1 cup fudge topping over cake; freeze about 1 hour or until topping is firm. In large bowl, mix ice cream and chopped whoppers (Um...I do suggest doing a "quality control" check on those whoppers - better grab a handful and make sure they're's a sacrifice, but somebody's gotta do it); spread over cake. Freeze about 4 hours or until ice cream is firm.
4. In chilled medium bowl, beat whipping cream with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.
5. Remove sides of pan; place cake on serving plate. Top with whipped cream. Melt 1/4 cup fudge topping; drizzle over whipped cream. Garnish with additional whoppers. (If pressed for time, you can cheat like I do and use whipped cream from the can - spray over the top and then drizzle from the Hershey's chocolate syrup bottle - not quite as pretty, but still tasty!)

**Note: This is a cake that cannot sit out, it should be taken out of the freezer; toppings put on and then served right away. As ice cream layer starts to melt, it will start to slide off top layer a bit. This doesn't work well leftover, so eat it ALL right away!! If you save it in the freezer, the ice cream layer will slide off, so best to just put leftovers in some kind of bowl and serve as cake & ice cream "glop" (still tastes good).

Now, let's try linking up, shall we? Mr. Linky and I have recently become acquainted, so I invited him here to meet my friends...for chocolate!

Every Friday, I will have "Would you like chocolate with that?" and will put up a yummy chocolate recipe. If all goes well, I'll work on getting a button. You can do a chocolate-themed post and link up here. It doesn't have to be a recipe - could be a new chocolate find, thoughts about chocolate, pictures of chocolate...anything to do with chocolate (as long as it's family-friendly, of course!). I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!


  1. I'm not gonna lie, I'm feeling a bit intimidated by that recipe! But, as far as Mr. Linky goes, I'm sure I can come up with something about chocolate!

  2. Sorry about the two links lol. The first one didn't go to my home page lol. Let's just say I'm twice as excited about chocolate heehee! Count me in on that. I am a self proclaimed chocoholic! I'll put you on my link list so I don't forget. Yummy looking cake by the way.

  3. That cake sounds delicious! I love Whoppers and this is a perfect excuse for buying a container.

  4. Lisa, You are one great cook! The cakes looks so good...and pretty! I'm keeping my eye out for a chocolate post next week! This will be so much fun...thanks for hosting it!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
    Hugs, Rhonda ;)
