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...

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!
