I love making ice creams at home! It’s such a lot of fun!! The texture amazes me every time when I scoop out some ice cream!! 😁👌 Creamy and so smooth…it’s a delight!
This ice cream just happened because my hubby simply loves honey with anything & everything, so while chomping on some store bought vanilla ice cream…he says “can you make an ice cream with honey?!” 😋 I was amazed! I was like….absolutely! I can…it sounds delicious. I will definitely do that…in combination with Butterscotch! Hence, my Honey & Butterscotch Ice Cream 👌☺️ and it obviously has to be eggless!
In the past, when I was experimenting with homemade ice creams, I had some help from here….you guys can have a look too. My recipe is adapted from it with some changes to suit our palate. You can say it’s pretty simplified…no fussing over it..no churning at all! Just look at the texture…just like the ones you buy at your favourite ice cream parlour!
I always use basic ingredients for making ice creams…so it’s really a matter of 20-25 mins of prepping & just let the freezer do its job 👌😉 it goes like this…
Yield: serves 4-5 persons
Equipment: a non stick pan, a whisk/ electric whisk, measuring cups/ spoons, a ladle, an airtight container to set the ice cream, a large mixing bowl.
110 ml milk (I have used Amul 3% milk, you can use skimmed milk or full fat milk)
200 ml chilled cream (I have used Amul fresh cream, NOT whipping cream)
1tbsp + 1 tsp cornflour (cornstarch)
7 tbsp honey
2 drops of butterscotch essence (can be replaced with vanilla essence)
4 tbsp crushed butterscotch chips (I have used store bought butterscotch chips. These can be replaced with chocolate chips/ nuts)
Heat the pan over low heat, add the milk and cornflour, keep whisking as it cooks on low heat and make a smooth and thick custard (the custard should coat the back of a spoon). It too me about 5 mins to make the custard. Cool this custard in the refrigerator. Once cooled in about 10 mins, pour the custard in the mixing bowl, add chilled cream & the honey to the custard and whisk well for 7-10mins to mix everything well (I used an electric whisk hence took just 4-5 mins to mix these well). We do not need stiff peaks, just whisk to add some air into the mixture. Next add the crushed butterscotch chips & butterscotch essence. Whisk again for a min only. Immediately pour the ice cream in the airtight container and freeze for 8-10 hours. That’s it! Thaw the ice cream at room temperature for a few mins before scooping, I added some butterscotch chips while serving ☺️ You can pour some honey too!! Delicious !🍨🍦
Making an ice cream doesn’t get easier than this! My hubby went all ga-ga over the flavours! Since it has no sugar, it’s healthy too 😉
