BAKED Sunday Mornings: Coffee Ice Cream
Amazing! A Baked: Explorations recipe that didn't involve every dish in the house. This week's pick was coffee ice cream. Now, I am not a coffee person, but I love coffee ice cream. I have made David Lebovitz's coffee ice cream before and it is good ice cream, but the bitter coffee flavor is a little bit too strong for me. Maybe it is the beans I am using? I was hoping that this version might have a different coffee flavor, since it uses espresso powder and Kahlua to give the coffee flavor. I think something might have gone wrong when I added the salt (like maybe I added 2 teaspoons by accident or something), because the base was really salty. It actually reminded me more of salted caramel ice cream than coffee ice cream. It was actually really interesting and I enjoyed eating it, but I want to make this again to see what it really tastes like. Head over to the Baked Sunday Mornings blog to see how everyone else did.
I put this ice cream on top of a chocolate cake with coffee glaze (that I will blog about later) and the combination was great. The cake was able to cut some of the salt flavor.
