This was fairly easy to make and the results were fantastic. The cake was very moist with a good flavor. It will become a Turkey dinner companion from here on out! The ice cream was the perfect compliment. Not only that, it set my imagination free to other ice cream combinations - funny - it never occurred to me to mix my own ice cream flavors. My Dad always talked about a Marshmallow ice cream from when he was a kid - I would have loved the opportunity to try and make a suitable variation for him - were he still with us. Thank you for an excellent recipe, and some very nice memories.
