Nothing can breathe new life into a Southerner like a scoop of ice cream on a hot summer evening. For this recipe, I’ve chosen to use what I think is one of the most refreshing flavors–mint. And I have so much of it growing in the garden, it was time for me to come up with a new way to use it.
Sprinkle some dark chocolate shaving on top of this ice cream, and you’ve got yourself a delicious little treat!
This is a favorite recipe of Chef Faith Anaya with the program Kid’s Cook! Arkansas and two of her students. This is a great recipe for kids to help out with!
This cake is included in my book, Seasonal Recipes from the Garden. It’s a modified version of my grandmother Margie Hanes Smith’s recipe. I believe this recipe came to her from her mother, my great-grandmother Hanes, who used blackberry jam as a way to sweeten the cake. Back then sugar was scarce, so jam and sorghum molasses were often used as sweeteners.
This cake can be served with or without Ma Smith’s caramel sauce.
