6 portions


For the ice cream:

  • 600ml double cream
  • 300ml condensed milk
  • 4 tbsp pure Canadian maple syrup (preferably amber for its rich taste)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the sauce:

  • 200ml double cream
  • 2 tbsp pure Canadian maple syrup (preferably amber for its rich taste)
  • 50g chocolate 70%, finely chopped
  • 80g pecans, roughly chopped to serve
  • Sea salt


  1. To make the ice cream, whisk the double cream, condensed milk, maple syrup and vanilla extract into soft peaks. Pour into non-stick loaf tin and freeze for 3-4 hours until set.
  2. Get the ice cream out of the freezer for 5 minutes before serving whilst you make the sauce.
  3. To make the sauce, heat the cream and maple syrup together over a low heat until just boiling at the edges. Be careful that it does not burn.
  4. Put the chocolate into a heat proof bowl and add a pinch of salt. Pour over the cream and leave for 1 minute to melt the chocolate. Mix together into a glossy sauce.
  5. Scoop the ice cream into bowls and pour over plenty of the sauce. Top with the pecans and serve immediately.

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.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

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