Black Sesame Ice Cream


This is the cool gritty luscious dessert that I've always wanted to try.  I surfed the internet for an 'easy to follow' recipe and chanced upon this delectable dessert from 'justonecookbook'.   Mine didn't turn out as smooth as hers, maybe because I didn't grind the roasted black sesame seeds till very, very fine. Nonetheless, it was enjoyed by members of my family and they nodded with approval when I asked them whether it was good or otherwise.

I've tasted vanilla slice before but not Kaya Slice.  My first taste of Kaya Slice was at a fusion cafe in Perth and the combination was truly wonderful.  So when I returned from my vacation, I just had to give it a try with my homemade kaya and believe me, it's real yummy especially if you are a kaya fan.  Serve this as a dessert to jazz up your reunion dinner during this coming Chinese New Year!
