After a hearty telling off (see Comments on "CALL FOR COMMENT!!") I am truly chastised and contrite, back in the saddle and dreaming up my favourite...Dessert, what's more Ice Cream...and Licorice to boot. What more could a Recipe Developer with a sweet tooth ask for? Three great loves rolled into one! I've been meaning to put this together since acquiring my newest gadget, Thermomix, but have resisted till now. SO in honor of returning to the blogging minority, here is my recipe for Licorice Ice Dream...yes Dream! Check out those little chunks of licorice! This is soooo yummy, there should be a law against it!
This recipe would be easy (enough) to duplicate with a good strong arm (for the custard part), a mixer/blender and an icecream maker.
- 200 g sugar
- 5 egg yolks
- 1 whole egg
- 500 g milk
- Pinch Pink Salt Flakes Pink salt flakes BUY
- 1 tsp Vanilla - Bean Paste Heilala vanilla bean paste BUY
- 200 g licorice pieces
- 600 g cream
Place sugar yolks, egg, milk salt and vanilla into Thermo bowl and cook 10 min/80°C/speed 5.
Add licorice and cook 2 min/90°C/speed 2.
Bring speed up slowly and beat 30 sec/speed 7.
Pour into cold tin, allow to come to room temperature then freeze several hours or overnight.
In clean dry Thermo bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form 20-30 sec/speed 4/Butterfly. Remove from bowl and set aside.
Cube the frozen ice cream mixture and place approx half into Thermo bowl and chop 6 sec/speed 6. Add a little of the whipped cream if necessary to help combine. Add remaining frozen ice cream mix and blend up to 2 min/speed 6-7. Add cream through hole in lid until fully combined.
Pour back into tin and re-freeze several hours until solid.
Remove from freezer and place into fridge ten minutes prior to serving.
