Ice cream

I bought a cuisinart ice cream maker from the US along with a voltage transformer. Guess what, the first time I used it I broke the paddle and cover, and the second time I blew the fuse. Yep, its gone, the internal bits are all melted. The good thing is that the first time I made delicious strawberry ice cream that was a little too watery for the daddy’s taste but nevertheless delicious. The second time I made divine chocolate gelato. Both times churning by hand so it was a tremendous effort and it felt like great recipes should be shared. The best thing is that the ingredients are things we almost always have in our fridge.

Chocolate Gelato Recipe

2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon espresso powder

Bring 1 cup milk to a boil and take off heat.
Pour milk into mixture of dry ingredients and stir constantly.
Let mixture cool and add remaining cup of milk.
Churn in ice cream maker.

Gelato’s ready and the best thing is its ready to eat immediately unlike homemade ice cream which needs to be frozen for another couple of hours.

  1. So many people have been making ice creams recently! I need to get my cuisinart one out too – before it spoils from not using it :p Can yours be repaired? My hubby bought a beer dispenser from the States before (let’s not even go into that), and the fuse blew also but he brought it to a HDB repair shop and they fixed it up good. The guy even said that it’s possible to fix it so that you don’t need a transformer anymore.
