It didn't help that I decided to bake  yesterday afternoon knowing that it was already as hot as an oven outside!

Honeycomb Ice-cream Sandwich


This quick and easy ice-cream dessert is great if you're serving a large crowd at a party. It's also very convenient as you only need to slice and serve - no plates, cups or utensils required! Even the pan doesn't need washing up!

Can you make me some pancakes/french toast/scrambled eggs for breakfast?!!".
