For this recipe you’ll need London Dairy Pralines & Cream ice cream. If you’re looking for creamy vanilla ice cream mixed with swirls of caramel sauce and caramelised pecan nuts, your exquisite praline pleasure is here. Available as 120ml Cone, 125ml Cup, 500ml Tub, 1l Tub.


  1. Butter and sugar the inside wall of a medium size ramekin or cup and keep aside.

  2. Preheat the oven to 190-degree Celsius.

  4. Boil the milk, mix the yolk and corn flour and cook together with the milk until it becomes a thick shiny paste.

  5. Mix the paste with melted chocolate and keep aside.

  6. Meanwhile, beat the egg white with the sugar (don’t put the sugar in all at once – do it in two batches), to create a meringue mixture.

  8. Pipe the combined mix into individual bake-safe pots and bake the soufflés at 190-degree Celsius for about 10 –12 minutes.
