Delicious Summer Ice Cream Recipe…
Today the lovely Natasha from Nevie Pie Cakes shares with us this fab ice cream recipe… Toasted Oatmeal Ice Cream.
In this weather its the perfect summer treat… Im so hungry even looking at these photos!!
This is a recipe I used to make as a teenager, it is from an old Marks and Spencer cookbook that I still treasure.
It sounds unusual, but it is delicious, and you can fool yourself into believing that it is healthy, as it contains oats! The oats and sugar turn into praline, and give the ice cream a gorgeous nutty, toffee taste. You must really watch the oat/sugar mixture while it is under the grill, as it burns very easily!
I had intended to make use of my ice cream maker, but it had lain idle for so long in the back of a cupboard that the liquid in the freezer bowl had started to leak. So I used the old fashioned ‘taking it out of the freezer regularly and beating it’ method. You only need to do this three or four times, but just make sure that the ice cream is semi-frozen when you do, or it won’t be effective.
Try adding the ice cream to some chocolate cookies – they make the perfect ice cream sandwich!
