1. Ice Cream Sodas with Variations recipe

Posted by bettyboop50 at June 1, 2001

I have had this for a long time. I don't know where I got it from, but have been making for quite a while, until I misplaced it. I accidentally found it while going through some of my TNT recipes. Hope you all enjoy! See the notes below for the amount that you will need.

Black and White Ice Cream Soda

I add some instant coffee and make it a mocha ice cream soda.

Chocolate syrup
Vanilla ice cream

Bodacious Black and White Ice Cream Soda

I add some Kahlua and some butterscotch schnapps.

Chocolate syrup
French vanilla ice cream

Canary Island Special Ice Cream Soda
Vanilla syrup
Chocolate ice cream

Black Cow

Root beer soda
Vanilla ice cream

Brown Cow
Coca Cola soda
1 tablespoon chocolate syrup
Vanilla ice cream

Strawberry Soda Ice Cream Soda
1/4 cup strawberry syrup
A splash of milk
Vanilla or strawberry ice cream

NOTES: traditionally an ice cream soda is flavoring, charged water, ice cream and possibly a nice dab of whipped cream.

The technique is 1, 2, 3. You put 2 tablespoons of syrup or flavoring in the bottom of the largest glass you have. Add seltzer water stirring as you pour to within 2 inches of the lip of the glass. Add 1 large scoop of very firm ice cream trying to get it to straddle the rim of the glass, yet still submerged in the seltzer enough to touch the seltzer deep enough to begin reacting with the bubbles to create a foamy heat. If the ice cream is to deep in the mixture, it will over flow. If it doesn't touch the seltzer at all you don't have a soda. With a little practice you will reach a perfect balance. Top soda with a hefty squirt of whipped cream. The possible combinations are unlimited.

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
3-1/2 cups milk
2 egg yolks
2 Tablespoons butter, cut into 8 pieces
2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Beat the eggs until frothy.  Add 3/4 cup sugar 2 Tablespoons at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat for 3 minutes longer, scraping the bowl occasionally. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt, beating constantly until mixed. Sift 1/3 of the flour over the egg mixture and fold in.

Repeat the process until all the flour has been incorporated.  Pour into a 9-inch greased and floured springform pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until the cake tests done. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.  Loosen the cake from the side of the pan with a sharp knife; remove the side of the pan.  Remove the cake to a wire rack to cool completely.

Combine 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a saucepan.  Whisk in the milk gradually.  Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.  Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat. Whisk the egg yolks in a bowl.  Stir in 1 cup of the hot milk mixture, whisking constantly.  Whisk the egg yolk mixture into the hot milk mixture.

Cook over low heat for 1 minute, stirring constantly.  Pour into a medium bowl.  Add the butter, stirring until melted.  Stir in the vanilla.  Press waxed paper onto the surface of the custard. Cool slightly.  Chill in the refrigerator.

Arrange some cake fingers around the edge.  Spread the strawberries with 1/3 of the remaining whipped cream.

Repeat the process with another layer of cake fingers, 1/3 of the custard, the remaining strawberries and another 1/3 of the whipped cream.  Top with the remaining cake fingers, the remaining custard and remaining whipped cream. Chill for 8 hours or longer.  Pipe the reserved whipped cream into rosettes over the top of the trifle.
