Recipe For Pumpkin & Maple Ice Cream

5 egg yolks
3/4 pint (375ml) double/heavy cream
3 oz (75g) caster sugar
250g pumpkin cooked, cooled and mashed
2.5 fluid oz (75ml) maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Method: First cook the pumpkin, mash and leave to cool before you start this recipe. In a bowl place the egg yolks and caster sugar and beat well until you have a thick mixture. Slowly add the syrup, beating all the time and when that is fully mixed in, add and beat in the mashed pumpkin. In a separate bowl pour the cream and add the nutmeg then beat together well until peaks begin to form. Carefully and gently stir this into the egg, sugar, syrup and pumpkin mixture.

Transfer the complete mixture in an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. This is a great recipe for Halloween.

Ice cream sundaes are also a great Halloween treat - pumpkin and maple syrup flavor would be brilliant served as a sundae and you could be really imaginative with toppings, such as black licorice strands for a gothic effect. Visit my sundae pictures section for ideas on how you can vary serving up this type of special dessert treat.
