Rum and Raisin Ice Cream


One of my family's favourite dessert is Rum and Raisin ice cream.  However, this flavour is not always readily available in the stores.  So I had to spend some time surfing the internet to hunt for recipes and after taking some tips from here and there, came out with this recipe which was easy to prepare and most importantly, it yielded good result.










Recipe for Rum and Raisin Ice Cream

    Ingredients
  • 3 Tbsp raisins
  • 1/4 cup Rum
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2  tsp vanilla
  •  6 oz. brown sugar
  • 4 egg yolks

Method
  1. Soak the raisins in Rum, overnight.  Strain, set aside the raisins and Rum.
  2. Heat the cream, milk and vanilla on low heat.  Once the milk foams up, remove from heat.
  3. Whisk brown sugar and egg yolks till pale and thick, gradually add in the warm milk, whisking continously.  Pour the mixture back into the saucepan, with a wooden spoon cook over low heat, stirring continuously until the mixture coats the back of the wooden spoon.
  4. Add Rum into the mixture.  Cover with cling wrap, once cool, refrigerate overnight.
  5. Churn the mixture in an ice cream maker for 30 mins. and add in the raisins at the end of churning.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)
