Creme brulée ice cream

Creme brulée ice cream / Sorvete de creme brulée

Soup one day, ice cream on the other... No, my blog is not going through a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde phase, I swear! :)
Even though it’s freezing cold here in Sao Paulo today (9ºC!!) I had to share this recipe with you – the ice cream is so good I would not be able to wait for a hot day to post it.

Creme brulée ice cream / Sorvete de creme brulée

Creme brulée ice cream
from Donna Hay magazine

Custard:
1 cup (240ml) whole milk
2 cups (480ml) heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 egg yolks
2/3 cup + 1 tablespoon (145g) caster sugar

Toffee:
1 cup (200g) caster sugar

To make the custard, place the milk, cream and vanilla in a saucepan over medium heat until it just comes to a boil. Place the yolks and sugar in a bowl and whisk until well combined. Gradually add the milk mixture, whisking to combine. Return to the saucepan and stir over low heat for 8-10 minutes or until custard is thickened and coats the back of a spoon. Strain custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a metal bowl, set aside to cool then refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

To make the toffee, place half the sugar in a small saucepan over low heat until it starts to caramelize; stir and add the remaining sugar, to keep the caramel from burning. When it’s completely melted and golden, pour over a piece of foil and set aside to cool. When it’s completely set, use a rolling pin to break the toffee into small bits. Set aside.
Pour the custard into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Scoop the ice cream into a container and stir in the toffee bits. Put in freezer until firm, at least 4 hours.

Serves 4
