Sticky date pudding for two

We are having a quiet night in and a special dinner to celebrate a New Year’s Eve as we wait to watch the annual fireworks spectacular on Sydney Harbour. It is always a special night as the first major city in the world welcomes in the new year. It was a beautiful day here and we started with an early morning swim at Nielsen Park beach on Sydney Harbour, then divine coffee and croissants at The Grumpy Baker in Vaucluse. After the sea mist lifted this morning it turned into quite a hot day, but late this afternoon a thunderstorm cooled things down. So, it’s going to be perfect to enjoy sticky date pudding with our French champagne in the lead up to midnight. As I write this the early 9pm “kids” fireworks show is already lighting up the harbour and Sydney skyline spectacularly. The rain has gone and Sydney is sparkling! Can’t wait to eat our dessert and see the “real” show as we welcome 2019!! Thanks to Climb, Cycle, Repeat for this fab …

Pannetone Xmas Ice Cream Sandwich

The piece de resistance and finale of our Christmas feasting spree …toasted pannetone and Xmas ice cream sandwich. The Xmas ice cream involves softening (not totally melting) a 1 litre tub of vanilla ice cream with a jar of Mrs Robertson’s fruit mince mix and refreezing it. Reline the original tub of ice cream with glad wrap and then refill the tub with the ice cream mix overnight. when you are ready, remove the ice cream from the fridge to soften slightly. Then toast your pannetone, slice the ice cream and make these “to-die-for” festive finishers! Divine dessert.
