In this easy to follow recipe, Val proves just how versatile Ryvita Crispbread
can be by creating a delicious Ryvita
Caramel Crunch Ice-Cream.
And dont worry, you dont have to be a pro in
the kitchen to get this one right. This quick and simple dessert is fun to make
and is sure to wow even the most discerning guests at your next dinner party.
4 Original Ryvita
8 egg yolks
300ml whole milk
- Smash the Ryvita into crumbs a little
smaller than the size of corn flakes.
- Put half the sugar in a small frying pan
with enough water just wet it all. Put over the heat and bring to the boil
cook until caramel hazelnut colour is achieved. This will take
approximately ten minutes and needs checking regularly. Do not stir with a
spoon at all while sugar boils. Just as it starts to colour swirl the pan
in order to get an even colouring and prevent burning in areas.
- When the caramel is ready stir the
crumbs through it very thoroughly before spreading it all flattish over
some greaseproof paper. When properly cooled smash the crumbs up again and
leave to one side.
- Put the milk and cream together in a pan
and just bring to the boil before taking it off. In the meantime beat the egg yolks
together with the remaining sugar until pale.
- Pour the hot milk and cream into the
bowl with the sugar whisking all the time. Pour the mixture back into the
pan and return to a lowish heat. Stir all the time for approximately 6 to
8 minutes until the mixture appears to thicken slightly. Dont over cook
the custard base or you will have scrambled eggs. Allow the custard to
cool before churning.
- Churn your ice cream and only when
beginning to stiffen add the crumbs to the machine. When fully set put in
a freezer proof container and freeze until needed.
- Alternatively if you have no machine put
the custard in a freezer proof container and every to 2 hours stir with a
fork until stiffened but turning through the crumbs when it is just
beginning to set.
