TWD: Burnt Sugar Ice Cream

Burnt sugar. You’re probably wondering why you would want to make ice cream out of burnt sugar. Caramel my friends. Caramel ice cream that is creamy and smooth tastes so very fabulous. It really doesn’t need any additional topping, but much like a fashion model, I felt the need to dress it up. So I added a drizzle of caramel topping for photo purposes. ;-)

You can find this recipe over at Becky’s place, Project Domestication, or if you have Dorie’s book, Baking From My Home to Yours, you’ll find it on page 432. Great choice Becky!

I’ve made quite a few different ice cream recipes. This one reminds me of the Caramel Chocolate Nut ice cream I made last fall. Not necessarily the flavor, but the method. The caramel seizes up, hard as rock, only to smooth out again once it heats up.

I’m still trying to perfect my Orange Dreamsicle ice cream recipe, so stay tuned for that!

    I agree, it really didn't need anything, but now that I see this drizzle on it, I am thinking I should make some more just to try that out. Very nice photos of it all. Drizzle…oh, yeah!

    Well, yours certainly does look all dressed up with the extra caramel on top. I loved this one for playing around with, but think it's a little too sweet by itself. (Does that make sense? Add things like chocolate to make it less sweet. Yeah, I didn't think so!) ;)
