Watermelon Cake

image833.jpg

When I was surfing the net for recipes I got to know that watermelon can be consumed in so many ways. Thanks Bee for choosing this theme for AFAM, otherwise I would have been happy eating watermelon just like that.

The watermelon season is nearly finished over here. So it was difficult to find a good one. I got inspiration for making this recipe from here

Method

1.Cut triangular slices from the watermelon. Chill the slices in the fridge till they are firm.

2. Make small balls of mango and watermelon with a scooper.Chill them too.

3. Before serving drain the juice , put Vanila Ice cream between two slices of watermelon and also on the top most slice.

4 Decorate with the smalls balls.

The original recipe used grated coconut filling, I used ice cream. Serve immediately .

The photography session and Dilli ki garmi (Delhi summers) melted the ice cream.

So you will find more of ice cream all over in the photo .But the ice cream and watermelon combination tasted good.

  1. Hey very nice recipe. shud try this. Thnx so much for the recipe….

    Try it only on chilled slices of water melon. There is so much water in them that ice cream starts melting πŸ™‚

  2. That’s a really unusual recipe, Archana, and it looks nice and colourful! I thought you used watermelon in a real cake!

    Oh the net gives many ideas and recipes :)Even I had thought it will be added to a cake batter. When I saw this link I liked the idea of making it look like a cake. πŸ™‚

  3. thats very unique to combine mango and watermelon.

    Oh I did not have any other fruit so I teamed mango with water melon. Also to add colour to the dish :)There are many recipes on the net for new ideas πŸ™‚

  4. Hi!
    Watermelon and vanilla a good combo!! and easy work too!!!!
    very nice entry for AFAM .

    Yes they tasted gr8 together only thing is the watermelon should be chilled well. Don’t ever try on freshly cut slices it will give a messy result πŸ™‚

  5. Guess what…I had the same idea (for small watermelon ice-cream sandwiches) but in my case, the ice cream melted and became such a mess πŸ™‚ Your creation looks superb!

    Thanx Nupur πŸ™‚
    Oh even I had tough time keeping the ice cream in place. Even mine was looking a mess.
    The slices need to be chilled well and drained so that ice cream does not melt atleast for some time πŸ™‚
    Instead of sandwiching I would suggest putting the ice cream on one single thick slice of water melon.

  6. Archana,this is a very neat and cool idea…thanks for that link too…but I am surprised that even in that burning heat in delhi, you were able to click such a photograph!! Good Job!Loved the idea πŸ™‚
