No-Churn Strawberry Shortbread Ice Cream

It’s the start of Wimbledon today so there’s no better time to share a strawberries ‘n’ cream recipe with you all. I love making my own homemade ice cream and ever since I found a great, staple no-churn, no-machine recipe I’ve been hooked on creating new flavours ready to enjoy in the warmer weather. This ice cream recipe only requires a handful ingredients and will take less than 10 minutes of your time to make. In no time whatsoever you will have the most delicious handmade ice cream ready to scoop, eat and enjoy in the sunshine.

Ingredients:

300ml double cream, chilled

397g (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

150g (approx. 1 cup) fresh strawberries, chopped in small pieces

4-5 all-butter shortbread fingers, crumbled

Method:

1. Whisk the double cream to soft peaks. Fold in the condensed milk and vanilla extract. Place 2/3 of the strawberries into a food processor and blend until pureed, leave some bigger pieces of strawberry for texture. Fold in the pureed strawberries and half the crumbled shortbread.

2. Pour into a loaf tin or medium-sized airtight container. Scatter over the remaining chopped strawberries and crumbled shortbread. Cover with cling film and place in the freezer for at least 6 hours or overnight.

3. To serve, allow to thaw at room temp for 5-10 minutes. Then scoop into ice cream cones or into bowls with extra strawberries and shortbread.

Enjoy!

Ice Cream Filled Profiteroles with Chocolate Sauce

These profiteroles use a classic French choux pastry recipe but I decided to bring some Italian influence to the recipe and I’ve filled them with gelato instead of the traditional Chantilly cream. I love to serve these ice cream choux buns with homemade chocolate sauce which is so easy to make and tastes amazing. I’ve been experimenting with choux pastry and last week I shared with you my recipe for Gougères which are great hors d’oeuvres to serve for the upcoming party season. These sweet profiteroles are the perfect treat and are make a pretty indulgent dessert perfect for simply any occasion!

(Makes 8 large choux buns)

Ingredients:

Choux Pastry –

100g unsalted butter, chilled and cubed

125ml water

125ml milk

1 tsp salt

1 tsp sugar

170g strong white bread flour

Filling –

8 scoops vanilla ice cream

Chocolate Sauce –

100g good quality dark chocolate

100g good quality milk chocolate

150ml double cream

2 tablespoons golden syrup

Method:

1. To make the choux pastry: Preheat your oven to 160 degrees Fan/180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Before you start making the choux pastry make sure you have all your ingredients weighed out ready. Place the butter, milk, water, sugar and salt in a saucepan and melt the butter on a high heat.

2. Once the butter has melted, turn the heat down to low and add all the flour. Using a wooden spoon, beat really well until the mixture ‘clumps’ together and starts to come away from the sides of the pan.

3. Now tip the dough into a mixing bowl (this will cool it down a lot quicker) and using the wooden spoon beat the dough until it’s cool to touch.

4. Now add the eggs one by one and beat until the mixture is stiff and all the beaten egg is well combined. Now take a heaped tablespoon of the choux and place it down on the baking tray. Bake for 25 minutes and then allow to cool completely.

5. To make the sauce: Place the chocolate, double cream and golden syrup in a large saucepan, stir continuously on a medium heat until all the chocolate has melted and you have a smooth, glossy sauce. Once the choux buns are cool, dust with icing sugar and cut in halve width ways. Fill with a scoop of ice cream and pour over the warm chocolate sauce.


Enjoy!
