Enjoy The Heatwave With Bread Ice-cream

Summer finally feels as though it is here, with temperatures soaring and the sunshine making a long-awaited appearance. While most people would assume this means ditching our trusted loaf for something lighter and more refreshing, they couldn’t be more wrong, as one of the best treats to enjoy when the sun is out is brown bread ice-cream.

You’ve most likely tried salted caramel ice-cream, you’ve definitely indulged in rum ‘n raisin ice-cream, but brown bread ice-cream is another strange, but equally delicious, combination of flavours that works brilliantly in frozen desserts.

The caramelised breadcrumbs add a rough texture to the silky soft cream, and a sweetness to the vanilla custard.

David Lebovitz, author of The Perfect Scoop, said he first tried the ice-cream when travelling in Ireland and he was “intrigued by the idea of bits of dark crunchies embedded in scoops of cool, creamy ice-cream”.

He said after one bite he “was hooked” and has since developed a recipe to recreate the delicacy himself, featuring butter, sugar, cinnamon, salt, whole milk, heavy cream, cream cheese, egg yolks, vanilla extract, whisky and, of course, brown bread.

The ice-cream gets its crunchiness from the bread fried in butter, sugar, and cinnamon before being toasted in the oven. They are then mixed into churned vanilla custard ice-cream before being stored in the freezer.

Alternatively, you could try making ice-cream bread instead, consisting of just softened ice-cream and self-raising flour. Newlyweds Blog tried a chocolate version of the recipe, telling readers: “This really is bread, lightly sweet, great smothered with butter (DT), or dipped in coffee (me), or milk (the boys). Oh heck, even served with more rocky road ice-cream would be great.”
