You do need an ice-cream maker for this recipe. We have a basic Philips one with freezable bowl.
The basic recipe I have used here comes from the Ben and Jerry recipe book and contains raw eggs. Usual advice applies re: avoiding serving this those whose immune systems might be weak such as the elderly, pregnant and small children.
Sesame snaps are thin bars of sesame brittle and can be found in the biscuit or gluten-free/health food section of the supermarket. I have seen similar products in the ethnic sections or larger stores too.
Ingredients (makes just under 1 litre)
3 medium eggs
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 cups double cream
1 cup milk
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
4 x 30g packs of sesame snaps broken into chunks (sesame brittle)
Place the broken up sesame snaps in a bowl in the freezer.
Whisk the eggs and caster sugar together for a couple of minutes until they are pale and frothy. Blend in the cream, milk and cardamom.
Transfer the mixture to a waiting ice cream maker (following manufacturers instructions) making sure the cardamom doesn’t get left behind in the bowl.
Churn for 20- 40 mins until thickened. Add in the sesame pieces just before the end and allow to fold in.
Serve immediately or store in the freezer.
