Coffee Ice Cream
|Coffee Ice cream|
Serves about 10 persons
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 egg yolks
In a slow stream, pour over it 1 cup of hot (not boiling ) full cream, stirring constantly.
Bring the pan over a low flame and keep stirring until the custard is just about to boil. Do not allow it to boil. This is to ensure the eggs are cooked through. If you are unsure, simply strain the mixture through a sieve to keep the custard smooth and velvety.
While it's warm, add this
5 tbsp of strong instant coffee crystals, stirred until melted. Also, add to this
1/2 tsp salt
3 1/2 cups chilled heavy cream
Taste for sweetness and the coffee flavour you enjoy.
You can add more coffee or sugar at this stage.
Chill overnight. Churn in your ice cream maker.
If you wish to make sure the eggs are cooked but do not curdle, use a thermometer until it registers 76C | 170 F.
You can add about 50g/2 oz of dark chocolate if you like.
4 tbsp of Kalhua, Tia Maria, or Baileys Irish Cream liqueur can also taste good in this ice cream.
