  • Sprinkle the brandy over the crumbled Christmas cake and leave to soak in.
  • Place the sugar and water into a pan and dissolve over a low heat.
  • Once dissolved, turn up the heat and boil for 4 minutes, bang on.
  • At the 3 minute mark start whisking the egg yolks on the machine until thick.
  • As soon as the sugar is ready, remove the pan from the stove.
  • Whilst still whisking, add about ½ of the sugar to the yolks and whisk very well.
  • The yolks will fluff up very quickly, keep whisking for about 30 seconds then add the rest of the sugar.
  • Whisk on a high speed until cool, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the Condensed milk, cream and lemon juice and whisk until thick and creamy.
  • Finally add the chopped Christmas cake and stir well.
  • Freeze overnight.
