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...

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.
