TWD: Burnt Sugar Ice Cream

You won't find Burnt Sugar Ice Cream on the menu at your local ice cream truck.


Nope, not there.

Too bad. This ice cream has "best seller" written all over it.


I know. It doesn't look like much. Humble. And brown. But boy, does it ever taste delish! Perfectly caramelly with just a hint of "burnt".

Burnt in a good way. Burnt with the teeniest, tiniest hint of bitter to balance the sweetness.

Thanks so much to Becky of Project Domestication. Becky picked today's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe.


OK, that's it, folks! If you'd like to try this, please check out Becky's blog or find a copy of Dorie Greenspan's book, "Baking, From my Home to Yours".

Yes, this was good wasn't it? It seems like "brown" foods are hard to photograph but taste delicious.

talking about brown foods. I've been on a tour of brown ice creams. But this by far beats the rest. sooo good.

Looks perfect. Must not be too hot there as it looks like your picture was taken outside. Or maybe you are just good and can get a good picture quickly.

Looks good. I really enjoyed this one. I wish I had some hot fudge to go on top, but then I might have done some serious damage.

Love your photos, makes it all look even more fabulous, and it was plenty fabulous as it was!

I'm totaly with you on its looks being too simple for its taste... this should have have stamp on it, either stating it's terrible (to make more for us) or to be massively manufactured! It was amazing... and yours looks like it has the perfect thinkness, firmness... the works!

Susi said...

You are so right, that burnt/sweet combo is magical.
