Great Recipe For Butter Pecan Ice Cream
One of the top 10 ice cream recipes viewed on this site and one of my favorites for a homemade treat!
1/2 pint (500ml) single/light cream
1/2 pint (500ml) heavy/double cream
2oz (100g) brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup of pecan nuts (chopped)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (or according to taste)
Method: Place the single cream, sugar and butter into a saucepan and mix together over a low heat. Stir until the mixture starts to bubble around the edges. Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow to cool.
When the mixture is cold transfer it to an ice cream maker and stir in the double cream and vanilla extract. Freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions but remember to add the pecan nuts 5-10 minutes from the end of the freezing cycle. Serves 6-8
