BAKED SUNDAY MORNINGS: COFFEE ICE CREAM.
So I joined a baking group called Baked Sunday Mornings. The members of this group will post a featured recipe from the wonderful cookbook, Baked Explorations, by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. Ironically, the first baking assignment is Coffee Ice Cream! Which is okay in my book because I happen to LOVE coffee ice cream. And I needed to make this for another recipe I will be posting later in the week.
This coffee ice cream is different from the one I usually make because I don’t often use an egg base in my ice cream. I did like the creaminess of this ice cream. But I should have listened to my gut regarding the amount of salt this recipe called for. While I usually add a pinch or more, depending on the flavor I am creating….this recipe called for an entire teaspoon!!! So while there is a nice coffee flavor (Kahlua is added!)….it almost took on a smoky, salted caramel quality. Unusual….but in a good way. The recipe can be found soon on Baked Sunday Mornings. I have been wanting to own this cookbook for some time. And so I was very happy for the ‘excuse’ to have to purchase it! This group will feature a new recipe to be posted every other Sunday. And after perusing the many wonderful recipes from this book, I am definitely looking forward to many future posts!
On a scale of 1-5, I will give this 3 whisks.
