Knickerbocker Glory with Strawberries and Nuts
Today’s post is going to be something short and sweet 🙂 Today’s recipe is a classic British icecream dessert Knickerbocker Glory. Haha!! Knickerbocker!! funny name right?! But I kinda like it.. 😀 This lovely ice cream concoction is a layer of vanilla and strawberry ice cream sitting on top of fresh strawberries topped with strawberry compote, nuts, fresh whipped cream and a glazed cherry…..
Hubby and I discovered this dessert while in a pub and fell in love with it , so much so that when we came back he immidiately got the icecream maker out and started to experiment with the flavours.
Icecream is something that never goes out of season at our home. So don’t be surprised to see icecream recipe posts in here during winters.. 😀
The icecream is a sweet toothes greatest fantasy in all sense as it combines the creaminess of cream, tanginess of strawberry compot , really milky and yummy strawberry icecream and vanilla icecream topped with fresh strawberries.
Traditionally Peach sauce is used in Knickerbocker Glory.. Since hubby is not a huge fan of peaches ( I know! Wierd!!) :p I used strawberry compote instead.
