I have always loved brown bread ice-cream, I think it's an inspired recipe that sounds so worthy, yet tastes so delicious. And now I have found a way to make it a bit more decadent.
- 84g wholemeal bread
- 56g granulated sugar
- 3 tbsp water
- 1 pint double cream
- approximately 100ml Spiced Rum Liqueur 20%
Whiz the bread to crumbs in a food processor then toast briefly in a dry frying pan turning them until they are golden brown. Melt the sugar in the water in a heavy pan, don't stir, just shake it occassionally until the sugar is evenly melted, then boil rapidly for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and immediately stir in the breadcrumbs until the sugar syrup cools into crystals on the crumbs. Stir the Spiced Rum gently into the cream. Be prepared to taste until reaching the right flavour, not too much Spiced Rum, just enough to taste it in the cream. Now whip the cream mixture and once whipped gently fold in the crumb mixture. Freeze in an ice cream tub and remember to remove it from the freezer about half an hour before serving.
