I got an ice cream maker last month and I didn’t buy any ice cream cookbook. And I have never seen an ice cream maker before until one was delivered to my doorstep. And I did the unspeakable, I used the unit without reading the manual that came with it. Naturally, I got all panicky when my sorbet was still as runny as melon juice. I was in the verge of tears, worrying that I have spent that stupid amount of money on a broken machine. Then I manned up, googled coffee ice cream and this one popped right on top. Or second, I couldn’t remember, but it was pretty high top. Simply Recipe’s post on David Lebovitz’s ice cream book, The Perfect Scoop. I read it more than 10 times, word by word, and tried it out. It turned out perfect the first time. Then the second time I added a couple of spoonfuls of Amarula cream. Another batch of heaven in the freezer.
Mother complains loudly about how rich and sweet it was. I really didn’t want to ruin the recipe that is so perfect already. The next time I made this, I had to bake fresh rolls so she could enjoy the ice cream with bread rolls.
And yes, I am ashamed of “stealing” David’s recipe off the web. But I am buying the book. Really.
