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...

Fried 'Nian Gao' ~ Sticky rice cake ~ CNY 2010

'Nian Gao' in Mandarin or 'Nin Ko' in Cantonese is a must-have item during CNY.  This sticky glutinous rice cake is symbolic as it carries a homonym that sounds like 'year~high/tall'.  For business people eating this will link them to prosperity and wealth and working people will look forward to career advancement, promotion. Slice them up when they're still soft, keep them in containers and they can be stored in the fridge for months. I normally steam and dip them in freshly grated young coconut mixed with some salt or just fry with beaten egg.  But this time around, I've decided to be a bit more 'challenging' and try out Elin's recipe.  Thanks, Elin of  Elinluv's Tidbits Corner   for sharing!

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try.
