No oven = no Daring Bakers.
But that doesn't mean we can't make ice cream!
I like to think I'm not the type to follow trends. But there is one food blogging trend I simply couldn't help getting caught up in. Yes, folks, I could not resist the ice cream from "The Perfect Scoop" by David Lebovitz.
Oh sure, I've picked up the book more than once in the bookstore. I leafed through the pages, admiring all of those mouth-watering ice cream photos, chuckling at the witty stories. But no, I resisted! "I already have too many cookbooks" I told myself. Plus, I'm too cool to follow trends, right? (Right?)
But then, after about the fourth time of tempting myself, drooling over the book, I came across a recipe for Malted Milk Ice Cream.
Malted. Milk. Ice Cream?!?
There went my resistance (and supposed coolness). Out the window.
I did not pass go, I did not collect $200. No, I proceeded directly to the cash register at Borders and then the grocery store (how handy, it's right next door!) to pick up missing ingredients.
People, I am here to tell you, David knows his ice cream!
This ice cream is so good you may need a few minutes to yourself to recover after the first bite.
My normally reserved husband, who's typical comment gets no more exciting than "it's good" even said "this is really good".
So there you go. Ice cream instead of cake. You can find the recipe------> here, at the Amateur Gourmet site (along with a cute and funny musical ode to this ice cream).
