Recipes for Ramadan: Ice Cream Lover’s Chocolate Pie

Serves 8, 2 hours

Someone passed me this dessert recipe years ago, and it’s still one of my favourites. There’s no need to choose between chocolate, ice cream or pastry with this dish – it’s a bit time-consuming, but the result is totally indulgent.


  • 1.5 cups plain flour
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 125 grams chopped butter
  • 200 grams chocolate
  • 500ml vanilla ice cream
  • 500ml chocolate ice cream
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 200ml cream


  1. In a mixing bowl combine flour, icing sugar, butter and cocoa. Use your fingers if necessary to mix it through properly.
  2. Add the egg yolk, then mix through until you have a heavy dough
  3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes
  4. Use the dough to evenly line a 24cm pie tin, prick the base, then allow it to sit for another 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 190C and bake the crust for 10 minutes. Then reduce the heat to 160C, and continue baking for 5 minutes. Then remove and allow to cool completely.
  6. Melt 100g chocolate, and brush the pie crust with it, then chill.
  7. While the chocolate base is cooling, melt the remaining 100g chocolate, then stir the cream through and refrigerate – this is the sauce.
  8. Add the ice cream as the filling for the pie, cut out a slice and drizzle with the chocolate sauce.
