This was a challenge that I baked pretty at the begining of the month. Why? Of course because of the chocolate! The February 2009 challenge is hosted by Wendy of WMPE's blog and Dharm of Dad ~ Baker & Chef.We have chosen a Chocolate Valentino cake by Chef Wan; a Vanilla Ice Cream recipe from Dharm and a Vanilla Ice Cream recipe from Wendy as the challenge. I chose caramel ice cream, because I wanted to prepare it long ago. When I took the photos the cake was still lukewarm...mmm...
500 ml milk
150 ml creme fraiche
3 egg yolks
260 g powder sugar
35 g salted butter
Whisk milk and cream fraiche together, but set 50 ml aside. Heat the mixture and beat the rest of the creme fraiche fluffy. Whisk egg yolks with 170 g of powder sugar.
Melt the rest of the sugar in a saucepan until golden brown. Remove it from the heat and add butter, whisk, add creme fraiche and mix well. Pour caramel into the milk mixture and whisk well. Pour caramel-milk mix over the egg yolks and heat until it thickens. Leave it in the
fridge over night and the next day let your ice cream maker do the job.
