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.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
