You will need a 1-litre tub each of sorbet and ice-creams. To soften ice-cream, stand tubs at room temperature, then place in the fridge while assembling bombe so they don’t completely melt. Cherries can be replaced with strawberries or raspberries.
2 cups berry sorbet, softened
1 1⁄4 cups frozen pitted cherries
(160g) 3 cups vanilla ice-cream, softened
2 cups chocolate ice-cream, softened
52g bar Cherry Ripe, finely chopped
50g white cooking chocolate, melted
Grease a metal pudding steamer (8-cup capacity). Line crossways with
two long, narrow strips of baking paper, extending 5cm above pan edge.
2. Spoon sorbet into prepared steamer. Smooth over top. Place in the freezer.
3. Working quickly, cut frozen cherries in half. Place vanilla ice-cream in a large bowl. Stir in the frozen cherries. Spoon into steamer over sorbet. Smooth over the top. Return steamer to freezer.
4. Place chocolate ice-cream in a large bowl. Stir in Cherry Ripe. Spoon into steamer over vanilla ice-cream. Smooth over the top. Cover with plastic wrap. Freeze for 6 hours, or overnight, until firm.
