Tips & Tricks
  • For an adult version, try adding two tablespoons of rum or brandy to your orange and fruit mix. Let it soak overnight before adding to your ice cream - yum!


  1. Combine the fruit cake mix, orange juice and zest in a large mixing bowl. Let it soak for at least five minutes.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and quickly fold the fruit mix through the ice cream. Using a metal spoon will make this easier.
  3. Spoon the ice cream mixture into a loaf tin or ice cream container and freeze until firm - at least 2 hours.
