Had quite a lot of christmas pudding leftover and have tried ice cream in the past. this recipe was brilliant, super easy and quick and tasted great.

also good in mini parcels, can use left over brandy sauce too to slacken mix. i would imagine freezing should be done at uncooked stage then cooked from frozen a really good freezer to table dessert.

This recipe is shown as freezable but there are no instructions for freezing.
Do you cook as per recipe and then freeze? Defrost and re-heat?
How about some freezing instructions please?

Made this with leftover Christmas pudding for a Boxing Day buffet and guests were very impressed. The filo pastry cracked a little which gave it an unintentional "yule log" effect!

Would be tempted to add more Bailey's next time as I couldn't really taste it and thought that it would be an interesting flavour with Christmas pudding.
