Sour cherries & brownie ice cream

It’s almost the end of sour cherries’ season so I must confess desserts with sour cherries were on top of our list and there was no weekend without one. Besides all kinds of clafoutis, pancakes, mousses or baked cakes, there is one dessert that I like so much I have to make it at least twice a month :) – sour cherry and brownie ice cream. It’s easy to prepare and it’s not necessary to use an ice cream maker because of the main ingredient – mascarpone; it makes the ice cream creamy.

Serves 6, prep.time 30 minutes (+at least 4 hours in the freezer)

Utensils: a blender, 2 bowls, a whisk, a spatula


  • 250 grams sour cherries (without pits)
  • 250 grams mascarpone
  • 150 milliliters heavy cream
  • 120 grams brownie (coarsely chopped)
  • 8 tbsp sugar
  • 40 milliliters cherry or sour cherry liquor (optionally)

Whip the heavy cream.

Puree sour cherries and sugar in a blender.

Add in the liquor for extra taste (if you want to serve it to children, skip this stage).

Combine the sour cherry puree with mascarpone and stir with a spatula.

Add in the whipped cream stirring until well incorporated.

Add the brownie bits and stir lightly.

Cover the bowl and place it in the freezer for at least 4 hours before serving.

Due to brownie bits, this ice cream won’t be easy to scoop.

Serve with chocolate sauce and fresh sour cherries. Enjoy!

Chocolate and cherries are a match made in heaven. Like the fact that there is sour cherry liqueur in there. Thanks for posting this frosty indulgence & have a great weekend.

Absolutely beautiful! It looks delicious. I’m sad to see the end of the season too.

I love that you used mascarpone. Brilliant idea – I can imagine how creamy it makes the ice cream!

I think for brownies you can do the extra work to scoop it, don’t you?

Hahaha! yes, indeed, I did some extra scooping but it was totally worth it :) )

It’s actually a nice and useful piece of information. I’m glad that you simply shared this helpful info with us.

The non-recourse loan is usually directly correlated with the remaining term of the lease of the single tenant.
We all know the value and importance of money and this is the reason we al indulge in a
healthy financial planning for self and family and the
earlier we may start this it is better for
us. These loans are for such purposes as buying fixed assets, equipment,
or other items for business expansion. Flight schools can assist a student
or potential student apply for these loans, making the process much less painful.
This also helps increase a commercial loan brokers network.

It’s in fact very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, thus I only use the
web for that reason, and obtain the most up-to-date information.

This plan is for public school and non-profit organization employees and it is tax deductible and tax deferred.
The 180 days includes the 45-day identification period.
When you are not in Canada and have moved out of the country and if
you receive the CRA form, then you need to know that
filling up the CRA form can actually trap you.
Example: If a regular Florida corporation earns $100,000 in profit after paying the shareholder a fair wage,
the corporation will pay roughly $22,000 of income taxes on the $100,000
of profit. The peace of mind that the taxes are done right
has a value all its own.
