Recipe instructions

Cut pound cake along the length of the cake to form 2 pieces like a sandwich. Allow the vanilla ice cream to soften.

Line a loaf pan with parchment paper, or plastic wrap.

Spread 1/4 cup of lingonberry jam on cut side of pound cake bottom.

Then spread layer of softened ice cream.

Spread 1/4 cup lingonberry jam on cut side of the top of the pound cake. Place on top of the ice cream layer jelly-side down to form the cake.

Return the cake to the loaf pan. Wrap and return to freezer and allow at least 3 hours for the cake to set up before serving.

In a saucepan heat apple juice over medium heat, add apples and sugar, then cook until slightly soft. Take off heat and add vanilla and Felix spiced apple and cinnamon lingonberry jam.

Serve cake topped with warm lingonberry-apple sauce sprinkled with toasted almond slices. Can be served with whipped cream.
