Barbecued doughnut ice cream sandwiches


For a crowd-pleasing summer dessert, look no further than this barbecued doughnut ice cream sandwiches recipe. The title alone is all you need to know! Pick up a packet of doughnuts and a tub of ice cream and transform them into a decadent dessert that’s ready in 15 minutes. Hot smoky doughnuts, a touch of strawberry jam and cool melting ice cream – the perfect way to end a barbecue.


  • 5 ring doughnuts
  • 400g vanilla ice cream
  • 200g raspberry jam


  1. Heat your barbecue to high. Slice the doughnuts in half. Place on the barbecue, outsides down – cook towards the edges of the barbecue, as this uses indirect heat so the doughnuts don’t burn.
  2. Barbecue for 2-3 mins until there are clear griddle lines on the outsides of the doughnuts. Use tongs to remove from the heat, place on a tray and leave to cool slightly.
  3. While the doughnuts are cooking, take the ice cream out of the freezer to soften for 10 mins.
  4. Add 2-3 small scoops of ice cream to the bottom half of each doughnut and evenly spread it around the ring. Spread each top half with a thin layer of raspberry jam and press down lightly to squeeze the ice cream to the sides. Serve immediately.
