This unusual dessert is made with vanilla ice cream and caramelized brown bread crumbs. I'm unsure if you could add the bread crumbs to already made vanilla ice cream thus skipping a lot of the work of making one's own ice cream. Had to share as I came across it recently and noticed the brown bread posting already on the forum.

Ingredients -
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 3 oz (90g) caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornflour
  • ½ vanilla pod
  • ½ pint (0.3 L) milk
  • 2 oz (60g) butter
  • 3 oz (90g) crustless wholemeal bread
  • 2 oz (60g) soft light brown sugar
  • ½ pint (0.3 L) double cream
Directions -

  1. Crumble the wholemeal brown bread
  2. Mix the brown sugar with the melted butter and add the crumbs
  3. Stir well then spread the mixture on a baking sheet
  4. Bake the crumbs in a pre-heated oven at 180 centigrade for 15-20 minutes, turning from time to time until they are toasted and crisp
  5. Allow to cool
  6. Cut the vanilla pod open and scrape out the seeds
  7. Pour the milk into a heavy-based saucepan, add the vanilla pod and seeds and bring to the boil
  8. Remove from the heat and leave for 15 minutes to allow the flavours to infuse
  9. Whisk the egg yolks, sugar and cornflour in a bowl until thick and pale
  10. Gradually pour on the hot milk, whisking constantly
  11. Return the mixture to the pan and cook over a gentle heat, stirring all the time
  12. When the custard thickens and coats the back of the spoon, strain out the pod and cool
  13. Stir the cream into the custard and churn the mixture until thick
  14. Take the breadcrumbs and crumble up any lumps
  15. Stir the crumbs into the mixture
  16. Churn for 5-10 minutes until ready to serve
