Lemon and Blackcurrant Sundae with Vanilla Mövenpick Ice Cream

Tuesday, 22 July 2014
The lovelies at Mövenpick Ice Cream have asked their fifteen favourite food bloggers, including me, to create a brand new sundae recipe using delicious Mövenpick Ice Cream.

Once all recipes have been posted, they’ll select the best sundae and the winner will receive a fantastic prize of an exclusive 2 hour Masterclass with the Head Pastry Chef of the Langham Hotel in London, Cherish Finden, followed by an afternoon tea for two at Palm Court.

Choosing which sundae to enter into the competition was difficult. I ended up asking my family and neighbours to taste test two sundaes and they chose my Lemon and Blackcurrant Sundae with Vanilla Ice Cream as their favourite.  I used fresh blackcurrants from our allotment to make the compote.  You can purchase a total of 10 delicious Mövenpick Ice Cream flavours from Ocado in 900ml tubs.

Lemon and Blackcurrant Sundae with Vanilla Ice Cream

You will need:

Vanilla Mövenpick Ice Cream
Leftover lemon drizzle cake or muffins
Blackcurrant compote

Layer the three ingredients in a sundae glass, finishing with a drizzle of blackcurrant compote.  Serve immediately.

Blackcurrant compote

150g fresh or frozen blackcurrants, washed and destalked
Sugar to taste

Put the the fruit in a saucepan with a couple of teaspoons of sugar and bring it slowly to the boil.   You shouldn't need to add water, but if the fruit looks as if it is starting to catch on the bottom of the pan or stick, then add a tablespoon or two. When the mixture thickens, remove from the heat and allow to cool.  Adjust sweetness to taste.  Store, covered, in the fridge.

You might be wondering what flavour the other sundae I created was.  It was a Black Forest Sundae with Cherry Compote and Chocolate Fudge Cake drizzled with Kirsch layered with Swiss Chocolate Mövenpick Ice Cream.  Obviously you could leave out the Kirsch if you were serving this sundae to children or others who do not consume alcohol.  My taste testers said it was a very hard decision but the Lemon and Blackcurrant Sundae with Vanilla Mövenpick Ice Cream was chosen by 6 votes to 4.

What is your favourite sundae flavour?


  1. Your sundaes look ab fab Michelle, I don't think I've ever had Movenpick ice cream or seen it for sale!

  2. Not sure which one I'd pick, they both look and sound delicious. Having just eaten mine though which featured blackcurrants too, I think I might have to go the way of your neighbours.
