Kahlua Vodka Ice Cream Cake

Hot weather & ice cream cake go together…right? Of course they do & if you are having a dinner party…well… put some Kahlua & vodka in that ice cream!!

I took some chocolate ice cream, vanilla ice cream, mixed them together, added some Kahlua & vodka to the ice cream,  made an Oreo cookie crust, layered it all & then it was done!

That is pretty much it!

*** please read through the method before starting to make this…there are a few ideas & tips toward the end.


Kahlua Vodka Ice Cream Cake


Oreo crust  recipe for the crust is from Kraft.com ( I doubled it)

36 Oreo cookies

6 tbsp melted butter

Ice Cream Filling

1   1.5 L container chocolate ice cream

1   1.5 L container of vanilla ice cream

4 tbsp Kahlua

2 Tbsp coffee vodka or regular vodka would work too!!



you need 1- 9 inch springform pan

Oreo Crust

  1. Put the Oreo cookies into the bowl of a food processor & process until they are fine crumbs
  2. Add the melted butter & process some more to mix it well *** mine was not mixed well so I put the crumbs into a bowl & mixed it together by hand to make sure that the butter was mixed with the crumbs really well
  3. Set this aside

Ice Cream filling

  1. Let the chocolate & vanilla ice cream get soft by taking them out of the freezer & letting them sit for a while on the counter
  3. When the ice cream is softened , put both type of ice cream into a large bowl & mix together until well combined
  4. Add the Kahlua & vodka & mix well
  5. Put 3 cups or half of the ice cream mixture into the springform pan on top of the crust. *** put the ice cream here & there over the crust so it is easier to spread…Using a small off-set spatula or the back of a spoon, gently spread the ice cream evenly over the crust
  6. Put this into the freezer for 15 minutes to firm up so you can put the next layers on. *** put the bowl with the left-over ice cream in the fridge so it gets firm & not watery
  7. After the 15 minutes, take the ice cream in the springform out of the freezer & take out the ice cream from the fridge
  8. Take another 1-1 1/2 cups of the Oreo cookie crust crumbs & sprinkle them evenly over the ice-cream that is in the springform pan
  9. Next, put the rest of the ice-cream that was in the fridge over top of the crumbs. ***Again, put the ice cream  here & there over the cookie crumbs so that it is easy to spread….Using an off-set spatula or back of a spoon, gently spread the ice cream evenly over the crumbs
  10. Now sprinkle the rest of the crumbs over the final layer of ice cream!
  11. Cover with plastic wrap & put this into the freezer overnight to firm up… If you want to make it the same day as you are going to serve it, I do not know how long it will take for the ice cream to get frozen,,,,several hours I would think
  12. When you are ready to serve it, use a dinner knife that has been dipped in hot water, dry it off & run the knife around the outer edge of the cake… between the cake & the springform rim. Work quickly so your cake does not start to melt
  13. Put the cake onto a serving dish with a bit of a lip so if it starts to melt it will not run all over the place & make a big mess!!! Also, since the bottom of the springform pan is under the cake, it will slip around on the serving dish…you could try to put a wet piece of paper towel that has been folded up, under the springform base & maybe that will help stop some slipping…but I am not sure about that! I always leave my cake on the base of the springform because I don’t want it to break but you could try to slip it off the base. *** if you put the base in the ring upside down, without the  lip..it will be easy to slip off !

You can serve this with the Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce


*** I accidentally deleted a lot of the pictures from many of my  blog posts …so this is the only picture I have of this ice cream cake!











Optional… serve with hot fudge sauce…recipe link above

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!

  1. After you take the ring off the cake, slip a long spatula under the cake bottom and remove cake to the serving platter. I do this ahead if when I want to serve and put the cake back in the freezer. You can even do it way ahead of time and wrap the cake in plastic and foil.
