The Anniversary Cake

White Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream Cake
Happy Anniversary to Kerry and Brian and Us!

This is a modified Cooking Light recipe! Most of you will know the modification is due to the Whitey's ice cream that is definitely NOT low fat. The cake is however, and it is the perfect texture for ice cream cake.

One note: when you get the low fat egg product; make sure that your Egg Beaters or similar brand does not have garlic and spice in it! Probably not what you would be expecting...

  • Cooking spray
  • 3/4  cup  unsweetened cocoa
  • 3/4  cup  boiling water
  • 6  tablespoons  butter, melted
  • 1  cup  packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2  cup  granulated sugar
  • 3/4  cup  egg substitute
  • 1 1/2  cups  all-purpose flour (about 6 3/4 ounces)
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 2  teaspoons  vanilla extract
  • 3  cups Whitey's White Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream  
  • 3  cups  frozen whipped topping, thawed

Preheat oven to 350°.
Spray 2 (8-inch) round cake pans. Line with wax paper.
Combine cocoa, water, and butter, whisk to blend. Cool.
Combine sugars well. Add egg substitute; beat 2 minutes or until light and creamy.
Add cocoa mixture, and beat 1 minute more.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add dry mixture to bowl; beat for 1 minute until combined. Stir in vanilla. Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake at 350° for 28 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes on a wire rack. Remove from pans. Wrap in plastic wrap, and freeze for 2 hours or until slightly frozen.
Spread ice cream in an 8-inch round cake pan lined with plastic wrap. (even hard frozen ice cream can be mashed into a pan using the heel of your end over the plastic wrap) Cover and freeze 4 hours or until firm.
To assemble cake, place one cake layer, bottom side up, on a cake pedestal. Remove ice cream layer from freezer; remove plastic wrap. Place ice cream layer, bottom side up, on top of cake layer. Top with remaining cake layer.
Frost with whipped. Spread frosting over top and sides of cake. Sprinkle with crushed peppermints. Freeze until ready to serve. Let cake stand at room temperature 10 minutes before slicing.
