Strawberry-Vanilla Ice Cream Cake

Balsamic vinegar complements the flavor of sweet strawberries in this simple ice cream cake.

  • servings: 8


  • 2 pints strawberries, washed and trimmed
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 28-ounce carton vanilla ice cream
  • Vanilla cookies, for serving


  1. Step 1

    Puree the strawberries with the sugar and balsamic vinegar.

  2. Step 2

    Line an 8 x 8-inch glass plate with plastic wrap. Pour in the strawberry mixture and freeze until barely firm, about 2 hours. Meanwhile remove the ice cream from the freezer to soften up.

  3. Step 3

    Spread the softened ice cream over the firm puree and cover. Freeze until both are firm. To serve, turn out onto a platter, flip to place strawberries on bottom, and cut in squares. Serve each square with a vanilla cookie.

    So easy to make an yummy. My kids just love it on a hot summer night for dessert. I use less sugar and they still think it's great.
