Question What Would You do with Corn Bread Ice Cream?

DH and I went to a wonderful ice cream shop this weekend where the owner makes all of the ice cream flavors right there, in small 5 gallon batches. It's the most amazing ice cream we've ever had!!! We brought home a couple pints including Corn Bread. It's vanilla ice cream with corn bread batter mixed it and it's really, really good. So I'm curious, how would you serve such a unique flavor?

Ideas I've had are:
  • Make a spicy chocolate sauce (chocolate sauce with cayenne and a pinch of cinnamon) and serve the ice cream and sauce over a slice of grilled pineapple or other sliced, tropical fruit.
  • Serve it with strawberries, as a variation on strawberry shortcake.
What would you do?

Serve it as a side for a meal of chili con carne ice cream!

I think grilled fruit would go great with this. How about some grilled pineapple?

How about something with honey? We love our corn bread with honey on it.

Wow, two more wonderful ideas. Thanks, swann and toots! I think I"ll be buying more soon.

I tried some with fresh strawberry sauce last night and it was wonderful. I don't think there are very many things that this won't taste good with!

Is it a sweet cornbread ice cream? If so, you could serve it over a fruit cobbler or an apple dumplin drizzled with caramel sauce and a nice cup of coffee. If salty, definitely with a side of chili.
