For a classy summertime dessert, it is not all the time essential to reinvent the wheel. A basic ice cream sundae will hit the spot with the suitable toppings.
It’s partly what we had in thoughts when growing this recipe for a sesame oat crumble in our e book “Milk Street Tuesday Nights,” which limits recipes to 45 minutes or much less. This easy baked topping is an effective way so as to add a nutty crunch to ice cream, although in fact it will additionally enhance different sweets, in addition to breakfast yogurt.
We begin with a combination of oats, pumpkin seeds, brown sugar, flour, and white and black sesame seeds, then rub chilled butter into the combination to distribute the fats evenly. Tripling down on the sesame taste, we fold into the oats a combination of tahini (a paste of floor sesame seeds), sesame oil and vanilla extract, which provides a subtly candy aroma.
If you like, as an alternative of pumpkin seeds, use uncooked sunflower seeds or chopped nuts. And if you cannot discover black sesame seeds, merely improve the white sesame seeds to three tablespoons.
Once baked and chilled, crumbled this nutty topping onto ice cream with whipped cream and chocolate or caramel sauce. And do not forget the cherry.
