Recipe For Salted Caramel Ice Cream

Four Cousins have recently launched two new products and invited me, together with 7 other bloggers to create creamgenius recipes. I decided to use the Four Cousins Marula Fruit Cream to make an ice cream. I wanted to add a twist to the ice cream, and introduce a salty element to the sweet liqueur, and so I decided to make a salted caramel ice cream. This recipe has totally blown me away. I love the texture of the ice cream and the taste is sensational. I am sorry you cannot grab a spoon and see for yourself by dipping into the screen. The only way around this is to make it yourself. Don’t worry if you cannot get hold of Marula Cream where you live, this ice cream will work perfectly well with any cream based liqueur.

What cream liqueur is local to where you live?

Salted Caramel Ice Cream
 
Ingredients
  • 250mls milk
  • 250mls cream
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 80g sugar - I used fructose
  • 150mls Marula Fruit Cream
  • 100g salted caramel
Method
  1. Place the milk and the cream into a sauce pan and bring up to blood temperature over a medium heat
  2. Whisk the egg yolks and sugar until at the ribbon stage
  3. Pour half of the milk mixture into the eggs while whisking all the time
  4. Pour the mixture into the milk and stir with a wooden spoon until a custard starts to form
  5. As soon as you can draw a line through the custard on the back of the wooden spoon strain the liquid into a jug
  6. Mix in the Marula Fruit Cream and place in the fridge overnight
  7. Give the mixture a good stir before churning in your ice cream churner until thick
  8. Stir in the salted caramel and place in the freezer for at least 4 hours before serving

  1. I am definitely going to make this salted caramel ice cream, Tandy – AND to make it even easier for me, my nextdoor neighbour is the producer of a well-known brand of liqueurs under which, of course, also a very popular buchu liqueur, and I always have a few different bottles of cream in my cupboard!!
    One finds her liqueurs all over in the Western Cape and other regions in the RSA, as well as at craft markets and farm stalls.

    P.S. Just a question to you – I do not have an ice cream machine; does that mean that I’ll have to skip this recipe, or is there another way in which I can make it?

    1. Hi Isobel, thank you for the comment and the visit. I will keep an eye out for the buchu liqueur. You can still make the recipe, even without the ice cream maker. Place the custard into a large container and put that into your freezer. Every hour take it out and give it a gentle whisking. Do this about 4 times to make sure ice crystals don’t form. It won’t be as thick as mine but it will still taste great 🙂
