Cardamom Ice Cream

Since I have seen that gorgeous chocolate and roasted beet pudding cake in Aran's blog, I couldn't get it out of my mind. I was wondering for quite a long time together with what and when to prepare it. I had the idea of something with cardamom, first I thought about a sabayon but then it was clear that it must be something cold, so I went for an ice cream. I must confess, I just got them out of the oven about a half an hour ago and took some photos quickly. It was absolutely lovely and went very well with the cardamom ice cream. It is a fantastic recipe so give it a try if you haven't done it yet! Thanks Aran for sharing!

5-6 cardamom pods
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
350 ml full fat milk
150 ml heavy cream
70 g sugar

3 egg yolks

Heat milk and heavy cream among the cardamom pods and the ground cardamom until it starts simmering. Turn off the heat and let it stand for an hour. Whisk egg yolks with sugar and slowly add hot milk mix to the eggs while whisking. Take it back to the cooking plate and cook until it thickens (it should be 85°C). Let the mixture cool and then let the ice cream maker do the rest of the work.
