6-8 portions


  • 600ml double cream
  • 397g tin of condensed milk
  • 300g left-over maple Christmas cake, crumbled
  • 50ml maple syrup (preferably golden colour for its delicate flavour)


  1. Tip the cream, condensed milk and maple syrup into a large bowl and use an electric whisk to beat until it holds peaks. Add the Christmas cake and use a large spoon to fold it, evenly distributing through the cream mix. Tip into a loaf tin or container and freeze for at least 5 hours, overnight or until frozen solid.

Deceptively easy to make, this no-churn ice cream is an indulgent treat and is a great use for leftover maple Christmas cake.

More about Maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest.

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter doesn't contain any butter, or dairy products.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree – that’s all.
