Cherry Crisp Ice Cream

Cherry Crisp Ice Cream at The Dessert Chronicles

It’s almost August and it’s about time an ice cream recipe appeared on this blog! Ice cream is surprisingly not on the top of my list of favorite desserts, but on a hot summer day I definitely find myself craving it. This flavor is out of this world and totally has me hooked. I somehow keep finding myself at the freezer with a spoon in my hand night after night. Seriously dangerous!

This recipe is from Jeni’s Ice Cream, based in Ohio. I have seen Jeni’s name everywhere lately and after trying this flavor, I can understand why. What is more brilliant than combining cherry crisp and ice cream together into one dessert?! The cherries are roasted in the oven with just a bit of sugar and a buttery crisp streusel topping takes things over the top. Both components are then swirled into a vanilla ice cream base that is heavenly on its own. The crisp oat topping maintains its crunch even once added to the ice cream, leading to absolute perfection in every bite. If you closed your eyes, you would 100% believe you were eating cherry crisp with ice cream on top! [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Banana Bonbons

Are you sick of all that summer fruit and begging for some chocolate? Well, maybe it’s impossible to be sick of the fruit, but I can always go for some chocolate. The moment I laid eyes on these on Joy the Baker I was sold. Peanut butter is sandwiched between two banana slices and the entire thing is dunked in warm, melted chocolate. I mean, seriously, is there a better combination?! This is the simplest creation and the best part is that it doesn’t even require an oven!

Blueberry Coffee Cake

I’m back with ANOTHER recipe containing fruit. I can’t stay away, but I promise some chocolate is headed your way next week. It’s blueberry picking season and I’ve been to the orchard twice in the last ten days. I swore I was just going to eat the berries straight up and not bake anything, but I gave in. This coffee cake was well worth it, though. It is insanely moist and the crumb topping is perfection. The best part about coffee cake is obviously the fact that it’s an acceptable breakfast food! I was very excited when I received the placemat above recently and it was just too fitting not to use. [Read more...]

Summer Fruit Tart

As I mentioned in my last post, the fruit this time of year is just too good to pass up, so it should come as no surprise that I can’t stop adding it to almost everything I bake. I make this tart at least once every summer and have yet to use the same combination of fruits. What’s not to love when there’s a buttery crust layered with pastry cream and fresh fruit? I love that the fruit is the centerpiece of this dessert, making it festive for any summer occasion. [Read more...]
