About this recipe: This is a delicious adult ice cream that is best made with a high quality vanilla ice cream. Use raisins or sultanas and your favourite dark rum. A pinch of cinnamon wouldn't hurt along with the nutmeg, either!


Serves: 8 

  • 4 tablespoons raisins
  • 4 tablespoons dark rum
  • 1 litre vanilla ice cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Prep:10min  ›  Extra time:8hr soaking  ›  Ready in:8hr10min 

  1. Place the raisins in a small bowl, pour on the rum, cover with cling film and allow the raisins to steep overnight.
  2. The next day, remove ice cream from freezer and allow to stand at room temperature until the ice cream is softened but not melting, about 15 minutes. Scoop the ice cream into a large bowl, and stir in the rum-soaked raisins, any extra rum in the bowl and nutmeg until the ice cream is well mixed. The rum will soften the ice cream and make mixing easier.
  3. Pack the flavoured ice cream back into the carton and refreeze until needed, at least 1/2 hour.
