Woman's Weekly recipe This ice cream sundae looks great and is very easy to make. All you need are six simple ingredients and a sweet tooth!


For the sauce:

  • (serves 4 -6)
  • 60g (2oz) soft light brown sugar
  • 6tbsp double cream
  • A few drops of vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp unsalted butter

To serve:

  • 4 - 6 small scoops of vanilla ice cream
  • A few toasted pecan nuts
  • 2 sundae glasses

Sunshine Williams, 41, suggests saving calories for dessert by saying no to bread as a starter. If you do, at least skip the high-cal butter.


  1. To make the sauce, put the sugar, cream, vanilla and butter in a small pan over a low heat. Stir well; bring to a gentle boil and cook, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes, or until syrupy. Leave to cool.
  2. Put scoops of ice cream into chilled sundae glasses. Drizzle some sauce over, sprinkle with toasted pecans. (Not suitable for freezing).
