Recipe Gianduia and almond ice cream cake of 02-07-2010 [Updated on 31-07-2018]

Ice cream cakes are ideal desserts to prepare in summer, this gianduja and almond ice cream cake is my latest culinary experiment. A fresh dessert, easy to prepare and spectacular, which never hurts;) The extracts that I used to prepare the ice cream cake are easily available in the shops that sell items for sweets, I used the gianduja flavor and the praline almond one, but you can use the flavor you prefer, even if I found this pairing really delicious.


How to make gianduia and almond ice cream cake

Prepare the custard by heating the milk together with the zest of a lemon.

In a bowl, whip the egg yolks with the sugar until the mixture is soft and creamy.

After having lifted the lemon zest, now add the milk slowly over the whipped eggs and put the mixture on the heat and start cooking over low heat, stirring constantly.

Cook the custard over very low heat, stirring constantly until it boils.

When the cream is ready, turn off the heat, add the gelatin sheets and mix.

Whip the cream in a bowl and once cooled, add the cream incorporating it with a wooden spoon.

Divide the mixture into two bowls, add the gianduja extract in one and the almond extract in the other

Line a 24 cm hinged mold with Pavesini biscuits soaked in a little flavored milk with a spoonful of sugar and a spoonful of liqueur (soak the pavesini only on one side and quickly otherwise they get too drenched)

Pour the gianduja ice cream over the biscuits and level as much as possible

Now pour in the almond flavor

Level the ice cream cake as much as possible then sprinkle it with chocolate curls

Place the ice cream cake in the freezer for at least two hours. Remove the ice cream cake from the mold and bring it to the table.

Cut the cake into slices and serve

Aphrodite Revolution

Ah, how good this cake is! A feast for my sensory receptors! Sight, touch, smell, hearing and taste have risen in a wave of jubilation! (For those who were thinking "what's the hearing?", I answer "And where do we put the moans of pleasure?").


100 gr of flour
90 grams of starch
250 grams of sugar
100 g of dark chocolate
140 gr butter
75 gr toasted hazelnuts
5 eggs
3 yolks
a sachet of vanillin

25 grams of sugar
100 gr dark chocolate
1.5 dl of fresh cream
apricot jelly
a dl of maraschino
a dl of rum

For the chocolate glaze
180 gr dark chocolate
80 gr sugar

For the cake: pulverize the hazelnuts in a blender, chop the chocolate and melt it in a bain-marie with 130 g of butter and vanilla. Combine the yolks, eggs, sugar in a saucepan, whip everything with an electric mixer until the mixture is light and fluffy, put the container in a bain-marie over low heat and continue to beat until it is warm. Pour it into a bowl and whisk it vigorously until it has cooled and swollen.

Incorporate 90 grams of flour, starch, hazelnuts and melted chocolate into the egg cream. Pour into a greased and floured 24 cm springform pan and bake at 190 & # 176 for 50 minutes

For the filling: melt the chocolate over low heat with the cream, let it cool, then place it in a bain-marie with water and ice and whisk the cream until it is clear and swollen. Cut the cake in half, brush the base with the mixed liqueurs, distribute the prepared cream over it, cover it with the remaining half and brush it with the 2 liqueurs.

Melt the gelatin with the sugar over low heat, then spread it over the cake and let it cool completely.

For the icing: prepare a syrup with the sugar and 0.8 dl of water off the heat, add the chopped chocolate for the covering, mix well with an electric whisk and let it cool slightly. Pour the icing into the center of the cake and, using a spatula, spread it evenly over the surface and sides of the cake. Let it dry and serve.

N.B .: Do not forget to dip the chocolate cream in water and ice: the mixture, to whip, but above all to be supported and not to sag, must be very cold while beating with the whisk.

Ideas for a variant: use bitter orange jelly instead of apricot and Grand Marnier as a liqueur.


My father Raimondo and I were leaving with the few addresses I managed to get, to meet those who had worked with my grandfather: in their eighties, nineties and even those over a hundred years old. It is true that for 15 years, that is, since the death of grandfather Gabriello, no one had thought of doing it, but I felt that now there was not a minute to lose.

But let's proceed in order: I knew very well that no matter how compelling the story was, writing a book on the ice cream industry founded by my father's father was pure utopia. I knew a part of the story, and for this I have to say thanks to my father who worked with his grandfather before starting his career as a lawyer, but I lacked testimonies about the beginnings, the foundation. What amazed me most was the lack, except for a few photographs, of documents relating to that period. Was it possible that no one in the family had kept them?

Then one morning my father and I found a key in the country house where grandmother lived, in Romano Canavese. It was tied to a medal of Saint Anthony of Padua and to a small gold crucifix from which Gabriello never separated. That key had been in the kitchen for 15 years: grandmother had never been able to find the right lock, although she had put it in more or less all the drawers and boxes. I was reminded of a travel trunk, the kind they once used, in leather and canvas, with the initials printed next to the lock, G.C., Gabriello Cecchi. The trunk was buried in the Romano Canavese cellar. As a child I used to play in that cellar, I called it the gun room because my grandfather kept the weapons he used to hunt with. The trunk was locked with a tiny padlock, which the tiny key unlocked. I found in it the whole life of Gelati Cecchi: notes, notarial deeds, and then handwritten invoices, letters from Teofilo Sanson to grandfather Gabriello, photographs, newspaper clippings, the top of the Gelati Cecchi Basket Biella signed by Rudy Bennet, old tables in enameled iron, illuminated signs, advertising sketches, cardboard cups and cone holders. There was no grandfather's diary from which to draw a book, but in that suitcase there was much more. There were the ice cream recipes with which the name Cecchi had become famous: Capriccio, Canestrino, Secchiello, Mattonella, Graziella, Nobilino, Parigina, Canguro, Mela Cha Cha Cha and the legendary Cecchino.

I could not believe it, it was a dream: in that trunk there were also the original formulas of artisanal ice cream, the ancient cream, stracciatella, gianduja and many others. Only one person in the world keeps those recipes and is a master ice cream maker from Turin, famous for the quality of his products. Grandfather Gabriello had given them to him before abandoning artisanal ice cream and devoting himself to industry. I would never have been able to ask him who still scrupulously adopts them today, for reasons of respect.

Now that I have rummaged through the trunk, studied all the photographs, read notes and letters and recipes, leafed through the albums and old advertisements, now I can say that I have met Gelati Cecchi. Fragments of endless and beginningless stories that accompanied my childhood have found their rightful conclusion and their beginning. Incomplete stories have taken shape and meaning. Disappeared objects have appeared in unexpected places. When a unique image finally emerged, it left me amazed. Because I saw grandfather Gabriello at work, at the helm of his company. As if I had been there. As if it had been there. In front of my eyes.

Of course it is a pity not to have met him at his desk, in the ultra-modern Vinovo factory, or in the ice cream parlor where it all began, in Corso Palestro al 2: an entrepreneur like him must have had some advice to give, he who arrived in Turin from Tuscany. and created one of the most important ice cream industries in Italy. Destiny wanted it to be my turn to start over. I have not abandoned the idea of ​​the book, but now the priority is to give new life to Gelati Cecchi, as grandfather imagined them in 1936, with those recipes there, and that story there, which is the story of my family.

Gianduia and almond ice cream cake - Recipes

Ok, these days we have saved a lot of calories and we have been good.
. it is therefore time to collect our credits ^ _______ ^
By now you will know, I am not a woman of half measures and therefore if I have to sin I do it with great fanfare.
"Ricotta and almond cake with lemon curd".
Doesn't it sound heavenly just to name it? Imagine when you will eat it!
The recipe I found some time ago in a food magazine, perhaps Donna Hay, and put it aside for a few centuries, then the desire for ricotta did the rest.
It is a fairly soft and moist dessert, not a cake to soak in short, but very fragrant and rich. especially calories.
Although it is perfect even on its own, I find that accompanied by the pungent taste of lemon curd it gives the best of itself, even if this addition of fat could make some people horrified. It is eaten at room temperature and the day after making it is even better, but I don't mind cold from the fridge too. De gustobus.
It is a good dessert even if you have gluten intolerant guests, because there is no trace of it in either the cake or the cream.
If I made you want to go, how about switching to the recipe?

For the ricotta and almond cake

120 gr of butter
275 gr of extra-fine granulated sugar
1 vanilla bean
Zest of 4 lemons
4 eggs
240 gr almond flour
300 gr of ricotta
Flaked almonds to taste
Powdered sugar to taste

Preheat the oven to 175-180º.
Separate the yolks from the whites.
Sift the ricotta through a fine sieve.
Beat the butter with the sugar, lemon zest and vanilla until light and fluffy, add the egg yolks one at a time, incorporating one well before adding the other.
Add the almond flour.
Add the sifted ricotta.
Whip the egg whites until stiff not too firm and add them to the mixture a few at a time, stirring with a spatula from the bottom upwards without removing the mixture.
Pour the batter into a 22 cm diameter pan well lined with parchment paper, preferably use a pan with a snap ring.
Cover the surface with the sliced ​​almonds and bake.
Bake from 50 minutes to about an hour (it may take more or less, it will depend on your oven) until a toothpick stuck in the center of the cake comes out clean and no longer moist.
If the cake gets too dark during cooking, cover it with aluminum.
Once the cake is out of the mold, remove and let it cool for 10/15 minutes before removing the ring and placing it on a rack.
Once cold, sprinkle with icing sugar.

3 large eggs
150 gr extra-fine granulated sugar
80 ml fresh, filtered lemon juice
55 gr cold butter in flakes
Zest of 1 lemon

Lightly beat the eggs with the sugar until they are liquid and not stringy, add the lemon juice and continue beating for a minute.
Cook this mixture in a double boiler until thickened, it must be just thicker than a custard.
Remove from the heat and filter through a colander, add the cold butter, stirring well to melt it and mix with the mixture, add the lemon peels last.
Cover with cling film and leave to cool in the refrigerator.

Now you just have to put yourself in the kitchen, let me know if you have tried it eh.
