I is for Ice cream

This homemade ice cream is a sweet cheat. It takes minutes to prepare (plus several hours to freeze) and is great to impress midweek. I make mine with crushed honeycomb (see my earlier blog), but you could mix in anything from pistachio nuts to crystallised ginger to fruit. However you want to make your ice cream, this is a rather calorific dessert, so eat with restraint….or a small spoon.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Freezing time: minimum 4 hours (ideally overnight)

Ingredients:

  • 600ml double cream
  • 397g (1 can) condensed milk
  • 120g honeycomb

Recipe:

  1. Pour both ingredients into a large bowl and whip until the mixture forms soft peaks.
  2. Add your ice cream flavour, in this case all the honey comb made previously (smashed into large chunks, small pieces and some dust) and stir gently.
  3. Transfer into a freezable container and freeze overnight.
