Coffee Ice Cream


Coffee Ice Cream | From My Sweet Heart

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.

      Liz….I got the idea from your blog. And when I was trying to figure out what I should do with my post….I went back to yours to see the Grasshopper Bars…..and then I realized …they hadn’t posted the recipe for those yet! So I am with you….I hope they will get caught up on posting the recipes, soon, too! And your ice cream looks divine…..would love to have a ‘cup’! : )

      Tiffany….this group is new to me….though I’ve noticed some really great people participate. I think they are one recipe behind in posting though… hope they catch up soon! And this ice cream is definitely yummy! : )

      I love groups like this, Cassie. It’s fun to see how everyone makes the same thing! I hope to learn that I’ve been accepted into the Daring Bakers this week. I’ve been waiting a whole month! But this ice cream would be so refreshing after one of your fabulous po’boys! : )

      Ha! Ramona! I thought this was an odd recipe for a Sunday morning baking group! But they are eventually going through every recipe in the book. So it had to happen sometime! Though you know……it would make a very nice iced coffee drink! ;- )

      Hey Russell….it should be a fun group! But I think they are behind in posting recipes and enabling us to link our posts to them. But the ice cream was pretty good! : )

      Hi Ryan! Thanks so much! I hope the site posts the recipe soon. Would love to link to it and be able to meet more members! But I’m looking forward to baking from this book! Btw….your coca cola cake, peach bundt and sweet potato salad look wonderful! : )

      Hi Rebecca and thanks for the welcome! Kind of weird about the salt, no? Not a bad taste….just not what I expected! : )

    • Anne says

      Christiane…..just be sure to cut down the salt! It’s not exactly salty….it’s kind of a nice taste….just less coffee like and more salted caramelish. But it was DEFINITELY creamy! : )

    • Anne says

      Oh Laura….you should get one! They are so much fun and fairly cheap these days. And I use mine all year round! Think of all the luscious seasonal ice cream you can make! : )

    I think your blog is a little too dangerous for daily visits. :-) I am a huge sweets addict and this is just too much! We love our ice cream maker, there are so many times we just throw this or that in to come up with a quick sweet treat. Love your pic too…it looks so creamy!

    Coffee ice cream is definitely one of my favorites! I love baking groups for that exact reason. I mean, what better reason to buy a new baking book right? It’s mandatory for the group!
