Last week’s Baked Sunday Mornings challenge left us all with extra Caramel Sauce. I wish I’d thought of glazing the cake with it in between the layers like Jaime, but since I didn’t, I couldn’t let this wonderful caramel go to waste. Vanilla Ice Cream and Caramel are a natural match in my book! And, just to add texture and further dimension to this lovely concoction, I added toasted Pecans.
I’ve been wanting to try David Lebovitz‘s Vanilla Ice Cream from The Perfect Scoop. I’m sure the Vanilla Ice Cream is wonderful all on it’s own, but I couldn’t resist his suggestion to add Bourbon.
We layered the Bourbon Vanilla Ice Cream with the Caramel Sauce and Toasted Pecans and returned it to the freezer to set. I have never had commercial ice cream this good – including Hagen-Dazs.

Wow! I tried bourbon ice cream at a restaurant, The Boxing Room in SF for the first time last night so your ice cream caught my eye as I was thinking, how would I serve bourbon ice cream? My husband said with cookies but I was thinking of something special like your idea. It really is good, we shared a scoop and it was a perfect after dinner sweet;-)
Oh my gosh…this sounds so amazing! What great flavor combos! Yum!

Every time I try to make that damn vanilla ice cream of his I end up adding stuff, changing the flavor and getting all experimental with it. Its his fault for inspiring me…I sometimes doubt I will ever have vanilla ice cream again. Bourbon is one of my favorite flavors in dessert and I just know I will make this. Yum! I think I have an idea for something to pair it with. How sophisticated. I must do it!
This post had my mouth watering (literally, not even exaggerating) from title to finish. That looks amazing!
Oh, my!!! You are on a roll with fabulous ice cream flavors! I think this beauty tops them all.
PS…great driftwood photo!
