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
- 250 mls milk
- 250 mls cream
- 5 egg yolks
- 80 g sugar - I used fructose
- 150 mls Marula Fruit Cream
- 100 g salted caramel
- Place the milk and the cream into a sauce pan and bring up to blood temperature over a medium heat
- Whisk the egg yolks and sugar until at the ribbon stage
- Pour half of the milk mixture into the eggs while whisking all the time
- Pour the mixture into the milk and stir with a wooden spoon until a custard starts to form
- As soon as you can draw a line through the custard on the back of the wooden spoon strain the liquid into a jug
- Mix in the Marula Fruit Cream and place in the fridge overnight
- Give the mixture a good stir before churning in your ice cream churner until thick
- Stir in the salted caramel and place in the freezer for at least 4 hours before serving
I am in Italy until the 30th of October and will reply to blog comments then. If you want to follow along on our holiday please read our daily blog here.
Disclosure: I was sent two bottles of liqueur by Four Cousins in order to take part in this challenge. This post is in line with my blogging policy.
