To be honest, I usually have an extra loaf of Xmas cake on hand just in case the one that I'd served isn't enough for everyone. Usually, the 2nd loaf would be gone too. But somehow, I have an extra loaf last 2022 Xmas. Anyway, instead of having the Xmas cake on its own, I thought why not make something outta it?
The very first thought that came to my mind is a Xmas cake ice cream. I do not own an ice cream maker, so that's kinda outta the question. Then I saw a tub of leftover yogurt sitting at the back of my fridge. That was an exact lightbulb moment: frozen yogurt. This is a very simple and straightforward recipe. All you need is 3 ingredients. So, there is no excuse for you not to make this.
Greek Yogurt, 85g
Heavy Whipping Cream, 200g
Maple Syrup, 30g + More For Serving
Hand / Stand Mixer
Preheat oven to 100 degree celsius or 210 fahrenheit.
Transfer Xmas cake or pudding onto a baking tray and bake in the oven for 1 hr or until the cake or pudding is slightly dry.
Set aside to cool down completely.
It will dry out even more as it starts to cool.
Blitz Xmas cake or pudding in a food processor.
Give it a few pulses until crumbs start to form.
*Do not take it too far, or you will end up with a paste.*
Transfer the crumbs to an airtight container and set aside.
*Please stay tuned for my next recipe as I will use most of these crumbs.*
Whip together yogurt, cream and maple with a hand or stand mixer until well combined.
Transfer to an ice cube tray, preferably silicon.
The next day, transfer the frozen batter to a food processor.
Add 3 TBSP of that Xmas cake/pudding crumbs.
Blitz until smooth.
Transfer into serving cups.
Drizzle some maple syrup and sprinkle some of that crumbs over the top.
This is pretty decent...
