250g ginger biscuit
75g brown unsalted butter
2 litres vanilla ice cream
Zest and juice of 5 lemons
Green good colour
400g whipped cream
75g icing sugar
Zest of 5 limes
- Blitz biscuits in a food processor or use a rolling pin to bash them to small pieces. Add melted butter until you have a breadcrumb – like mixture. Press this firmly down into a 19 cm cake tin, preferably with a loose bottom and place it in the freezer.
- Meanwhile, beat the 2 liters of the vanilla ice cream in a food mixer for 5 mins. Add the zest and juice of 5 lemons and a few drops of green food color if you want a slightly greener effect. Pour the ice cream into the biscuits base and place back in the freezer for at least 6 hours.
- Beat the cream and icing sugar until you have soft peaks. Remove the cake from the freezer and spread the cream on top. Return it to the freezer until you’re ready to serve!
- Sprinkle the lime zest of the 5 limes in the cake before serving. Use a sharp knife and a strong arm to cut through.
