The Fürst Pückler ice cream is a Combination of three different types of ice cream. Nowadays mostly Chocolate ice cream, Vanilla Ice Cream and Raspberry ice cream served between two waffle leaves. Instead of raspberry ice cream can also be served Strawberry ice cream be used.

The ice cream was invented by the royal Prussian court chef Jungius in the 19th century and in honor of Hermann von Pückler-Muskau named. At that time, of course, the ingredients and composition were still somewhat different. Therefore, the ice cream recipe presented here is also strictly speaking only Prince Pückler style.

You probably know different variations of it. Because in the industrial ice cream assortment you often meet this delicious ice cream combination. For example, sells the Company Schöller her Fürst Pückler-style ice cream sandwich as a "Big Sandwich" already since 1956.

International is the Fürst Pückler ice cream by the way rather than Neapolitan cuts (Neapolitan slice, Neapolitan ice cream) known. In it can be combined significantly other types of ice cream.

The three types of ice cream that we need for this, I have already presented on my blog. But so that you have the right ratio of the individual ice cream varieties and do not have to jump back and forth between the individual recipes, there is once again the Ingredient lists and preparation instructions in short form. You can find the detailed instructions at the linked recipes.

If you want to take a more relaxed approach, you can prepare the ice cream masses the day before and let them steep in the refrigerator. You don't have to make all the ice cream varieties in one piece. If you want to make everything in one go, then you should use an ice cream maker. allow for a working time of approx. 2-3 hours and including waiting time approx. 6-7 hours. You can find a more detailed breakdown below.

Most often you can find the Variant with the vanilla ice cream in the middle. I think this is because vanilla harmonizes very well with almost every type of ice cream. But you are of course free in the order.

I have the layers horizontal in a square shape frozen on top of each other. With this variant, you should therefore make the vanilla ice cream second. Or you build two partitions into your mold and fill the ice cream vertically. The second variant was too cumbersome for me. But maybe you have another good idea?

  • First, the ice cream must be turned out of the mold. The cling film helps here. If you still have problems, fill warm water in the sink and put the mold in it briefly. After that, the ice cream should slide out of the mold. Then remove the cling film.

  • Now you have to think about the dimensions of your sandwiches. To do this, measure your block of ice cream and make a note of the dimensions. I cut my ice cream as shown in the picture below. Before you start cutting the ice cream, you should first put it back in the freezer and cut the waffles.

  • Once you have the measurements for your ice cream sandwiches, prepare enough wafers (two for each sandwich). The waffle sheets are easy to cut on a wooden board with a ruler and knife.

  • Take the ice cream out of the freezer and cut it accordingly. Moisten the knife beforehand. Fill two wafer sheets with a layer of ice cream and press down a little. Since the ice cream melts quickly, you should work quickly and, if necessary, always store a part in the freezer.

  • Place the ice cream sandwiches in a sealable container. Tip: the way I did it (see picture), there is a risk that the bottom will melt and refreeze in the freezer. This makes it very difficult to get the Fürst-Pückler ice cream out of the box again. It is better to layer the sandwiches in a container with the wafer facing down. Put them back in the freezer as quickly as possible and let them set for about 2 hours.

Interesting facts and tips about Fürst Pückler ice cream

  • You should after assembling the sandwiches the ice cream let rest in the freezer for a few hours. Otherwise, the ice cream may still be relatively soft compared to the waffle. When you bite into it, the ice cream swells out at all edges. Therefore, just be patient a little 🙂 .
  • It happens to me very easily with ice cream sandwiches that I eat too much ice cream too quickly. This is immediately followed by a nasty, pungent Cold headache punished. If this also happens to you from time to time, I have a very good Tip for you: you have to warm up the palate as quickly as possible! Either by drinking a lukewarm drink or by pressing your (hopefully warm) tongue against the palate. Then the headache will go away very quickly.
