Kahlua Coffee Ice Cream


An easy and great flavour cool dessert to round up after a meal.  I added in some hazelnut milk chocolate for the extra crunch and a pinch of salt as I like a salty/sweet taste.





Recipe for Kahlua Coffee Ice Cream

    Ingredients
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1 cup whipping cream
    • 2 oz sugar
    • 4  Tbsp instant coffee powder (used Nescafe)
    • a pinch of salt
    • 2 oz sugar
    • 5 egg yolks
    • 2  Tbsp Kahlua
    • 2  tsp vanilla
    • 100 gm Hazelnut milk chocolate, chopped (optional)
    Method
    1. In a saucepan, mix the milk, cream, sugar and coffee powder and cook under low heat.  Keep stirring till sugar has dissolved and small bubbles appear.  Set aside.
    2. Whisk the egg yolks with sugar till light, pale and creamy.
    3. Gradually pour the coffee mixture into the egg mixture, keep stirring not to overcook the eggs. Mix well.
    4. Pour this mixture back into the saucepan and cook, under low heat, keep stirring with a wooden spoon.  Cook till the custard can coat the back of the wooden spoon.  Draw a line at the back of the wooden spoon and if the line stays, then the custard is done.  Remove from heat.
    5. Mix in the Kahlua and vanilla.
    6. Pour this mixture into a large bowl, cover with cling wrap.  Let cool to room temperature before refrigerating overnight.
    7. Churn the mixture in an ice-cream maker according to manufacturer's directions.  At the end of churning, mix in the chopped chocolate and pour the ice cream into a tub to freeze.

  2. Okay Cheah, I'm back. As soon as I saw this post I called my daughter and asked her if she would make me this ice cream when I go to visit her in May. She said YES! I'm thrilled! I'll be pinning this to my Kahlua board so we have it on hand when I go to Idaho! (yes I have a board devoted to Kahlua:)

    Thanks for sharing, Cheah...

Gula Melaka Kuih Talam ~ 椰香打南糕

After successfully making the  Kuih Talam  with much trial and error, I ventured into trying out making this Gula Melaka Kuih Talam.  What is gula melaka one may ask?  Simply put, it's just palm sugar made from coconut palm.  The slightly saltish top coconut layer pairs very well with the dark and intense flavour of the palm sugar from the bottom layer, and this kuih can be served for breakfast or snack on at any time of the day.

I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
