Red Bean Ice Cream



Red Bean Ice Cream ... another cooling dessert much sought after in my household during this hot, hazy and humid weather.  I was very happy when it 'rained' yesterday but it was short-lived.  The rain wasn't enough even to wet the grass in my garden and I was so disappointed.  So far, there's no water rationing here in Ipoh but I'm sure that all of us will welcome any rain in the near future.





Recipe for Red Bean Ice Cream

    Ingredients

    • 150 gm red bean paste
    • 150 ml milk
    • 300ml whipping cream
    • 50 gm caster sugar
    • 4 egg yolks
    • a pinch of salt
    Method
    1. To make the red bean paste, just boil some red beans with some sugar, once the beans are soft, smash them till fine.
    2. Place milk and cream  in a saucepan, heat gently, once milk starts to foam up a bit, remove from heat.
    3. Using a ball whisk, whisk egg yolks with sugar till  smooth.
    4. Gradually pour the cream mixture into the egg mixture, whisking continuously not to cook the eggs.  Add in 75 gm  smashed red bean paste, mix well.
    5. Pour this back into the saucepan, bring to the boil, add salt, keep stirring till the mixture can coat the back of a wooden spoon.
    6. Pour this into a large bowl, cover with cling wrap.  Let cool, refrigerate overnight.
    7. Churn the mixture in your ice cream maker according to the instructions.  Add in the remaining 75 gm red bean paste just at the end of churning.

  13. Hi, red bean is one of my favourite food & when I was young, I loved to eat red bean ice=cream(made in long rectangle). Recently have been spotted a few ice-cream recipes, just don't have the ice-cream maker at home.

  14. Hi Cheah, I can only admire your ice creams but I can't make them with my 'old' fridge. When I get a new fridge, the first thing I'll do is to make ice cream your way. So many lovely ice cream recipes here that I can follow. Thanks for sharing.

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.
