Ingredients

  • 8 tbsp dry brown breadcrumbs

  • Zest of 2 oranges

  • 500ml shop bought custard

  • 10 tbsp fine salt

  • For the meringue:

  • 2 egg whites

  • 75g caster sugar

  • For the sauce:

  • 250g blackberries

  • 75g caster sugar

  • Juice of ½ orange

  • To serve:

  • Ice cream cones

Method

  1. For the sauce: place the blackberries in a saucepan with the sugar and orange juice. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 2 minutes, or until the fruit is really soft. Pass through a sieve squeezing the blackberries with a spoon to gather as much flavour and sauce as possible. Set aside to cool.

  2. For the ice cream: tip the breadcrumbs into a dry frying pan, add the orange zest and toast the whole lot until dark brown. Tip into a bowl and leave to cool. Pour the custard into a sandwich bag and add the cooled breadcrumbs. Seal the bag. Half fill a larger sandwich bag with ice, and add the salt. Drop the smaller bag into the larger ice filled one squeezing out as much air as possible. Place both bags into one final bag, and seal keeping air in the final bag. Shake the bags vigorously for 10-12 minutes, or until ice cream is formed.

  3. For the meringue: whisk the egg whites until frothy, and then gradually whisking in the sugar until the egg whites at least double in volume and turn thick and glossy.

  4. To serve: ball the ice cream into cones and pipe a Mr. Whippy-shaped meringue on top. Blow torch the meringue, and finish with a generous drizzle of blackberry sauce.
