Summer Celebration Ice Cream Cake

1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter melted
3 tablespoons orange yogurt
1 egg
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1-3/4 quarts vanilla ice cream, softened
4 to 6 squares (1 ounce each) semisweet chocolate
1 tablespoon shortening
Mixed fresh berries
Line an 8-in. square baking dish with foil and grease the foil; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, butter, yogurt, egg, orange peel and vanilla until blended. Combine flour and cocoa; stir into sugar mixture. Add chocolate chips. Spread into prepared dish. Bake at 325 for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs. Cool on a wire rack. Spread ice cream over cake. Cover and freeze for 3 hours or until firm. Remove from the freezer 10 minutes before serving. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate and shortening; stir until smooth. Using foil, lift dessert out of dish; gently peel off foil. Cut into squares. Garnish with berries and drizzle with chocolate. Yield: 9 servings.


This is the picture of the example piece of cake. I did not make this piece...

And this is the one I made for Jack's Birthday...

Also I doubled the recipe to make the cake pictured above.

Believe me, it does not need to be doubled. It is very rich!

The crust is like a rich fudge! It was very yummy though! :)
