Serve this cherry, chocolate and rose ice cream in cones for the kids, or in slices for a dinner party dessert. You don't need an ice cream maker to make it


Serves 8

Total time

255 minutes


  • 425 g can pitted cherries in syrup (drained)
  • ? tsp rose water
  • 600 ml double cream
  • ? a 397g can condensed milk
  • 100 g bar of dark chocolate (chopped)
  • shortbread biscuits, cones and extra cherries (to serve)


  1.  Line a 900g loaf tin with parchment or cling film. Tip the cherries into a food processor with 2 tbsp syrup from the tin, add the rose water and blend to a purée.
  2. Whip the cream until it holds soft peaks, then stir in the condensed milk and half the cherry purée. Pour roughly a third of the mixture into the loaf tin, swirl through some of the purée and scatter with chocolate, then repeat the layers until you’ve used all the ingredients up. Freeze for at least 4 hrs. Turn out the ice cream, slice and serve with biscuits and extra cherries, or use a scoop for balls to fill ice cream cones.
