This week for Tuesdays with Dorie our recipe selection comes from Becky of Project Domestication, she picked Burnt Sugar Ice Cream. You can find the recipe here at her site, thank you Becky! I absolutely love when we make an ice cream with TWD, it gives me that nudge to take out the ice cream maker, which sadly, is one of my lesser used kitchen appliances. No real reason why either, it works perfectly and we love ice cream. I guess I just never think to bring it out until I'm reminded by TWD :)
This ice cream came together beautifully and was pretty easy to put together. I'd say the toughest part is when the burnt sugar, or caramel, seizes up when you are adding the cream and milk mixture while making the ice cream base. You have wait for it to soften back up and combine with the liquids while constantly stirring. I have to admit I did have a bit of a sloshing and a little mess to clean up on the stove top due to some over zealous stirring -- tsk, tsk -- but it was well worth it in the end.
Above is the ice cream base just after being poured into the ice cream maker. Below it is just about done churning, yum!
We love waffles for breakfast, and using them as bases for desserts is another wonderful waffle application. Enter penguin waffle sundae featuring burnt sugar ice cream...even this Red Wings fan couldn't resist :)
