Thanks to this really simple recipe for walnut ice cream with maple syrup, I've just gained 3 kilos in the last few weeks! (directly to the recipe)
The recipe was so simple and delicious that I just had to do it again and again! So do not lose it. And if you do, promise not to do it every day, as I have in recent weeks! You just get too easily addicted to this ice cream ...
Here is the quick video tutorial. The recipe and some cooking tips you can find below.
Usually you have two alternatives when making ice cream at home: you have an ice maker or you have a lot of work. The ice cream machine helps to make a really creamy ice cream. If you do not have that, you have to regularly take the ice cream out of the freezer and stir it, so that the ice crystals that form are broken and the consistency becomes creamy.
With this recipe for maple walnut ice cream it's different.
Because, on the one hand, evaporated milk is used instead of normal milk (not to be mistaken with sweetened condensed milk), and on the other hand, the chopped nuts prevent the whole thing from becoming a hard block of ice. The evaporated milk is quite handy for certain ice cream recipes because it is less liquid than normal milk and thus less water crystals form during freezing.
Alternatives to evaporated milk:
The recipe also works with sweetened condensed milk, but then you have to use less maple syrup, otherwise it will be too sweet. You can also exchange the evaporated milk with whipping cream. This will add some extra calories, but will do the job.
The recipe is really easy: chop nuts, roast min pan, add maple syrup, whipping cream and unsweetened evaporated milk.
If you are lazy, the recipe will work out without roasting too, but then the taste will be slightly different and the ingredients will not mix that well. But also tastes really good!
