Ice Cream Cake

Today’s dessert is so simple to make that I feel silly posting a recipe for it. But it tasted amazing, so I felt I should share it here just so I remember to make it in the future. So if you are curious to know what it is, then let me tell you that it’s nothing but softened ice cream with candy, cookies and nuts mixed in. I made this ice cream cake to serve the kids at our BBQ party last weekend. As I was looking for recipes, I found Nigella Lawson’s ice cream cake and I loved the…

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

Vanilla Ice Cream (Eggless Recipe, No Ice cream maker needed)

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream — It is super simple to make with just 4 ingredients. All that is needed is to mix all the ingredients and then churn in the ice cream maker. If you don’t have ice cream maker, don’t fret I’ve included the procedure to make it without the ice cream maker too. Original recipe uses 4 cups of light cream or half-and-half, but I always have heavy cream and whole milk in the fridge, so that is what I used to make this ice cream. If you don’t have ice cream maker, then use only Heavy Cream to get a creamy, smooth ice cream. Using light cream or half-n-half will make the ice cream too icy.

Mocha Ice Cream (Eggless recipe)

It looks like Summer has almost come to an end (bahhhh). Good things pass way too quickly and this summer flew past at rapid speed. Didn’t do anything fun to mention with the husband travelling most of the season. I guess the only fun thing that my son did was to learn swimming 🙂 I want to post some of the summer recipes that I have in drafts before the season ends. I made this Mocha Ice cream from King Arthur flour site in June, around the beginning of Summer. It is very simple to put together and even my…

Mango Gelato

Gelato has been on my to-make list ever since I bought my ice cream maker which was some 3 years ago. So when I saw the recipe for mango gelato in King Arthur flour’s newsletter, I knew it was time to make this icy, creamy treat. Gelato is the Italian word for Ice cream. I searched online for the differenc between ice cream and gelato, there is a ton of information, but I understood was that gelato has less air incorporated because it is churned much slower. Also gelato uses more milk than cream, so it has less fat than…

This is a very decadent dessert, perfect on a sunny day (or any day for that matter). I’ve been making eggless ice creams for quite sometime now and I’ve had good success with it. But this recipe uses 4 egg yolks. I had frozen some egg yolks after using the whites in making…
