Apple Crumble Ice Cream Recipe

It's an ice cream that will definitely appeal to the masses, unlike some of my previous recipes like this one!One word of warning; be sure to add the crumble in right at the end of the ice cream churning process. If you add it too early, the crumble breaks up too much and the texture isn't ideal - too many crumbs.With ...

Why Are Eggs Used In Ice Cream?

Have you ever noticed how some ice cream will turn into a runny mess within seconds on a warm day? Others will maintain their shape for what seems like forever! When making homemade ice cream, a major reason for this is the use of a magical ingredient, egg yolk. What role does the egg yolk play in ice cream? Stabiliser - By adding yolks you extend the shelf life of your ice cream in the freezer as it inhibits thawing. Emulsifier - The lecithin in egg yolk creates a really rich, creamy ...

Popping Candy Ice Cream

Popping candy ice cream is a dessert which I promise will be a hit with the kids. It definitely was with my little girl! You'll find that when you add the popping candy lots will pop when added to the ice cream. The reason I added it during churning was for a bit of colour.

Miso Caramel Ice Cream

I love the Japanese culture and its food. There's something about salty miso soup - I could eat it every day. Miso is made from fermented soy beans and salt and it has numerous health benefits. Recently a Masterchef episode aired where miso was used in a dessert and the judges went crazy for it. That was enough motivation to get busy creating a miso caramel ice cream. Caramel pairs well with miso which is why I included it but you could make this recipe without the caramel. You just need to ...

Lamington Ice Cream Bars

The Aussie Classic Revamped These bars taste a lot like lamingtons, only they have a nice cool ice cream interior instead of sponge cake. They're really easy to make and last longer in the freezer than most home made ice cream thanks to the chocolate coating. Choosing the right ingredients I used this vanilla ice cream because it isn't too heavy and doesn't have any egg yolks. It goes really well with dark chocolate. But I think most ice creams would go well with this recipe.It's ...

Goat Cheese and Honey Ice Cream

Goat cheese and honey ice cream is a magical dessert that can be devoured on its own, with an apple pie or with poached pears. I used egg yolks to improve the texture and add creaminess. Scotch Whiskey goes brilliantly with the ingredients used in this ice cream so it's well worth adding. It also reduced the freezing point of your ice cream base which will provide you with a better end product. The Whiskey will also act as a stabiliser so your ice cream will store better in the freezer. ...

A Quick Guide to Ice Cream Overrun

What is overrun? Ice Cream overrun refers to the amount of air that is incorporated into ice cream during the churning process. A higher level of overrun will result more ice cream being produced at the end of churning. Ice cream manufacturers love overrun. It means they can sell a tub of ice cream; half of that being air! It's a great way to reduce costs. Governments, however, regulate how much overrun can be incorporated into commercially made ice cream to ensure customers aren't "ripped ...

This recipe was invented in the 1950's in the USA and has a mildly fruity, creamy flavour. From what I can see, there are many different recipes used in the US which all have subtle differences. Feel free to ...

The temptation will certainly be there to eat all of the bowl in one foul swoop. I came close - the only thing that stopped me was that I needed some leftovers to take pictures of. You won't see much ice cream in the pictures I took; that's because most of it got ...
