Upside Down Ice Cream Dessert With Strawberry Sauce

I know I've mentioned that since our girls are grown now, we really don't celebrate Valentine's Day here. I haven't even taken my decorations out of storage in a few years, so I think it's safe to say that minor holidays are pretty much retired around here. But, Galentine's Day though, sign me up! This past year has seen an influx of time spent with my girlfriends, from catching up with my grade school besties to sleepovers with long standing girlfriends to new ones as well. My neighbor is hosting a Galentine's Day brunch this Sunday, and while I'll only know two other ladies out of the 15 that are going, I'm super excited to meet new friends. The brunch is going to be a potluck where each lady brings either a beverage or food dish to share. I'll actually be providing materials for the craft portion of the event, so that gets me out of any cooking duties, but I did think about bringing a little dessert, like this Upside Down Ice Cream Dessert with Strawberry Sauce from Golden Blossom Honey, because it has been incredibly unseasonably warm here and who doesn't love ice cream when it feels like summer is on the horizon?

I've had this cake saved for a few years and have wanted to make it a few times, but honestly it seemed a little complicated to piece it all together. My daughter and I even looked at it earlier this week and both almost decided to skip it again in favor of something else. Mostly because I forgot to buy plastic wrap at the grocers, but finally thought that I could get it accomplished in the same manner by wrapping the bowl in a gallon sized zip top bag. We did have a few snafu's with the vanilla ice cream melting faster than the strawberry sorbet softened, but when all was said and done, it was actually a lot easier than I had anticipated and turned out really pretty. I did double the crust ingredients because I like a hearty crust on cakes like this, but it's not really necessary to do so if that's not your thing. The strawberry sauce was simply divine and tasted almost like the mixture my mom would make for her strawberry shortcakes we loved to devour in the summertime as kids (and still do!) This ice cream dessert would be so lovely for Valentine's dessert or a Galentine's brunch. Or who really needs a special occasion to make this beautiful dessert? There's absolutely nothing wrong with making it just because!

  1. Looks gorgeous, so envious that you have them fresh strozzberries in the middle of winter! This is the first winter ever that we still have grapes, they usually disappear in December, but they are over 3 bucks a kilo.

    1. Grapes have been unusually high priced here lately. We usually get an influx of strawberries around Valentine's Day and they are pretty inexpensive. However, the weeks and months before and after the holiday they are soooo expensive I won't buy them again until summer rolls back around.

  2. It looks amazing, and I bet it's also delicious, but I can see why you kept postponing it. It does really seem a bit complicated. :D

  3. This dessert looks gorgeous when it's cut!! I can see why you like the thicker crust. I was thinking oooh those ladies got lucky inviting you to an event where everyone brings a dish. Then you said you were bringing the crafts, lol (still lucky to have you as a guest, but you know what I mean, lol). Have fun at your Happy Galentine's Day! I'm off work today for a job interview. Fingers crossed, you know how much I want this switch!! :)

  4. It used to be my favorite holiday, but we’ve become lame since Covid. We did go out to a fancy restaurant last year, the weekend after, but we also had a $100 gift card to use!

    1. What a great way to use up the gift card. I can't blame covid for my lameness. I think I've always been a bit lame LMAO!

  5. Just because is all the reason you need sometimes. Sounds like one that takes a little bit of doing though. Sure it will be a hit as you mingle with new friends on the hallmark day. You know what we think of that day after all these years lol

  8. That dessert looks spectacular. I'm sure it'll be a hit. A group of my coworkers used to get together periodically for potlucks, and we did something similar to the event that you're looking forward to. We agreed on a menu, each person signed up for one of the dishes, and the person who hosted - who supplied all the dinnerware - didn't do any cooking. I really enjoyed those dinners.
