Chocolate Ice Cream





My very first homemade ice cream

Here is the recipe :

450ml pint single cream (<35%>

300ml double pint cream (>35% fats / heavy cream)

200g plain dark chocolate

2 medium eggs

2 medium egg yolks

125g sugar ( if your cream is sweetened cream, pls adjust your sugar)

1 tsp vanilla essence

Method

  1. Double boil the chocolate and single cream
  2. Whisk the eggs, egg yolks and all but 1 tbs of suagr until thick and pale
  3. Whisk the chocolate mixture with vanilla essence into the custard mixture until the mixture thicken. To test , lift vthe spoon out of teh mixture and draw a clean finger through the mixture coating the spoon
  4. Stand the bowl in cold water to cool. Sprinkle the surface with sugar to prevent a skin forming
  5. Whip the double cream until soft peaks form, then whisk into the cooled chocolate custard.
  6. Freeze the ice cream for 1 hour then r4emove from refrigerator and beat the ice cream with wooden spoon. You can also use food processor..
  7. Repeat for a few times until the ice cream becomes smooth...
Notes :
The ice cream turn out really good both in texture and taste. A bit sweet though, must adjust the sugar level next time.
