CHOCOLATE-ESPRESSO ICE CREAM

Ingredients:
250 ml whole milk
250 ml heavy cream
80 gr whole espresso beans
60 gr sugar
50 gr Milka Noisette chocolate
4 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt


Heat the milk, sugar, espresso beans, salt and 120 ml of the cream until quite warm and steamy, but not boiling. Once the mixture is warm, remove from the heat, cover and let it steep at room temperature for 1 hour. Pour the remaining cream into a large metal bowl, set on ice. Reheat the milk and coffee mixture, on medium heat, until again hot and steamy (again, not boiling).
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks, then slowly pour the heated milk and coffee mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly. Scrape the warmed egg yolks mixture back into the saucepan. Stir the mixture constantly over medium heat, scraping the bottom as you stir, until the mixture thickens and coats the spatula.
Pour the custard through a fine mesh strainer, add chocolate, mix until melted, let it chill for a bit, then stir it into the cream. Mix in the vanilla and stir until cool. Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator, and then freeze it in your ice cream maker.

  2. Sta mislis, da li bi mogla da se stavi nes kafa umesto espressa (ne znam gde bih to mogla naci;)), ali svi sastojci su jako fini i mislim da bi se jedna-dve kuglice sladoleda odlicno uklopile u casi ledene kafe, mmmm...:))

  3. Jeste kremast izuzetno :)
    Nema potrebe za čekanjem pre služenja, može se služiti direktno iz zamrzivača i super je :)
    Moglo bi sa zrnima bilo koje kafe (možda bi moglo i sa mlevenom, ali to nisam probala, pa nisam sigurna), samo ako je kafa slabija, korigovati količinu zrna :))
