Recipe For Cinnamon Ice Cream

Cinnamon Ice Cream

I have read every single one of Sam Woulidge’s Confessions of a Hungry Woman columns in the Taste Magazine. She has published a book with the same name, and some of her articles have been included in the book. When reading ‘in good faith’ (page 50/1) Sam talks about memories in taste. When she wrote this, her mom was still alive and so she spoke of her grandparents and aunts and uncles. Sadly, Sam’s mom passed away and so I headed to twitter and asked her what taste would her mom’s memory be? Her reply “Butter. I find my mom in butter. And especially bottereiers“. When reading this in English I wondered what French dish bottereiers could be, and then I read that word in Afrikaans and realized Sam was talking about ‘butter eggs’ (the literal translation) or what I would call scrambled eggs. Made with a healthy knob of butter, scrambled eggs to me are lazy Sunday morning spent breakfasting in bed, something Sam is not so keen on. Sam is multilingual, a talented writer, mother to Labrador Retriever’s and the most beautiful son, Sebastian. Sam’s use of Afrikaans in her English sentences shows her true love for language. She reminisces in her articles written away from home about melk tert and summer days. So, when thinking of Sam in tastes I had to make something special for her with cinnamon. And not just cinnamon, the taste of milk tarts, but cinnamon ice cream laced with dulce de leche.

  9. My favourite pancake combo is cinnamon sugar and lemon juice so this ice cream would go down a treat with apple filled pancakes. Great recipe Tandy! xx

    1. To be precise it is 36.5 degrees Celsius to 37.2 degrees Celsius. If I were to use a thermometer I would measure to 38 degrees Celsius but I usually just make it what you would find acceptable for a baby’s bottle 🙂

  11. This is such a beautiful piece of writing. I was showing my hubby one of you ice-cream recipes the other night, to try, since the recipes that came with the ice-cream maker results in rock hard ice-cream.

    I think we must try this recipe this weekend. It looks and sound amazing.
