This is like a fancy mango lassi pie. Think of that beautifully icy drink that you order at Indian restaurants, thick with blended mango and lightly spiced with cardamom. To me, cardamom and tropical fruit are meant to hang out together. If used properly and with some restraint it can provide one of the most intriguing flavour profiles; you can’t always put your finger on what exactly it is but you definitely like it. This pie is a great summer option – and I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like an ice cream pie. — Kirsten

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g store-bought sponge cake
600g vanilla ice cream, softened
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
2 mangoes, peeled and sliced

Spiced syrup

Quantity Ingredient
4 cardamom pods, lightly crushed
110g caster sugar
1 vanilla bean, split lengthways and seeds scraped

Method

  1. Cut the sponge into 1 cm thick slices and use them to line the base of a 30 cm × 20 cm pie dish.
  2. Combine the ice cream and ground cardamom in a bowl, and spread out over the sponge. Freeze for 2 hours or until firm.
  3. For the spiced syrup, place the cardamom pods, sugar, vanilla pod and seeds, and 125ml of water in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Bring to the boil and simmer for 1 minute, then remove from the heat and leave to cool completely.
  4. Bring the ice cream sponge out of the freezer about 20 minutes before serving. Arrange the mango slices over the ice cream, then drizzle with the spiced syrup.
