For those of you who may be unfamiliar with a sundae, it is a sweet ice cream dessert. It typically consists of one or more scoops of ice cream topped with sauce or syrup, and in some cases other toppings of your choice like sprinkles, whipped cream, nuts and fruit.

This is my version of a Citrus Marshmallow Sundae. You may argue that these are not typically sundaes, but call them what you wish - make this dessert in three ways, deconstructed, in a glass or as a stack. You can buy lemon curd at any grocery store, or you can make my Lemon Curd or Ginger Grapefruit Curd, and whip it into store bought vanilla ice cream. The Lemon Curd ice cream has a tart yet sweet flavour, and the Ginger Grapefruit, my all time favourite, has a wonderful ginger flavour without being overpowering. I can't get enough of these, and the ice cream is so tasty you will be lucky if it makes it to the table. Because of the addition of the curd, the ice cream is permanently soft and creamy, and the taste is sensational.

Citrus Marshmallow sundaes
Easy as 1 - 2 - 3
  • Blend your choice of biscuits until crumbs form and add the melted butter to form a crumble and place in the bottom of your glass
  • mix your citrus curd with softened ice cream and layer on top of the crumble
  • place your marshmallows on top and if you want to make it more impressive use a kitchen blow torch to blacken and melt the marshmallows, but this is not necessary.

Dig in - it's a taste sensation

Random Facts: Believe it or not, sundaes originated from the fact that in the late 19th Century laws in the USA restricted the sale of soda waters on Sundays, so those looking for their ice cream soda fix on Sundays were out of luck. I'm wondering why on earth they would do that? Too many bubbles for a Sunday? However soon soda shops around the country got around the problem by taking the soda out and instead adding syrup directly onto ice cream. People loved them so much that when the laws were lifted the ice cream sundae stayed.
