A Hazelnut Brownie Ice Cream Cake

image

I adore brownies and always have them with some ice cream, so I felt a cake combined with both elements would be just great!  So here you have a brownie based sponge with ice cream in the middle.  Please feel free to add any type of nut or even extra chocolate if you wish.
