Doing a informal dinner party on Friday. We have really good local ice cream and wondered if anyone could come up with a good simple recipe to serve up with icecream. Possibly something warm like brownies?

Brownies, fruit pie or crumble, fudge cake, treacle sponge? I'd go for something warm as I love hot puddings with ice cream

Alternatively make sundaes?

Some great ideas thanks ldt. Have you a recipe for fudge cake or brownies please?

What flavour is the ice cream?

They do lots of different flavours but I usually plump for the vanilla as goes with everything

Unfortunately I'm the wrong person to ask for recipes as I usually just google and pick at random. I'm sure someone will have one though!

Roasted fruits

Apricot tart such as this or Nigella's chocolate and pear pudding?

Summer pudding? I think it's best made in advance and chilled overnight.

Or this looks nice and easy.

Stewed summer friut. But then I don't like heavy puddings.

Chocolate fondants or sticky toffee pudding. Google the Nigel Slater one, that's what I always use

I'd go for something warm and crunchy. I like the hot cold/ creamy crunchy thing. So a freshly baked brownie with a crunchy top. Stewed pears with a gingerbread man. Shortcake with stewed raspberries. Treacle tart. Actually homemade biscuits and ice cream are my absolute favourite.

Warm gooseberry crumble?

rhubarb crumble

this chocolate and orange marmalade cake is easy peasy. Recipe HERE

Caramelised fruit - chuck berries and nectarines into pan with equal amounts of butter and sugar, stir for a few minutes.

Anthony worrall thompsons brownies are the best (have tried and tested loads)

Alternatively what about making warm cookies and doing a posh ice cream sandwich?

Or some raspberries and strawberries stewed in Cointreau?
