My honey likes cinnamon

As I promised, here’s another ice cream.

Here we’re still enjoying some warm summer days, but the chill nights remind us that autumn is just around the corner. Cinnamon and honey are, in my head, flavours from the autumn, but so perfect to use on this late summer treat!

CINNAMON & HONEY ICE CREAM

  • 200 ml cream
  • 200 ml milk
  • 50 gr (1.8 oz) honey
  • 80 gr (2.8 oz) sugar
  • 80 gr (2.8 oz) egg yolks
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Heat the cream, milk, honey and cinnamon almost until boiling point. In a bowl mix well the yolks and sugar. Slowly add the milk mixture to the yolks, always mixing so the yolks won’t curdle. Transfer everything to the pan again and heat on low, always mixing, until it thickens and coats the back of a spoon but don’t let it boil. Pass thru a sieve and cool completely (preferably in an ice bath). Churn only when it’s fully chilled. I’ve served it in glasses that were dripped with honey before putting the ice cream.

Besides enjoying this wonderful ice cream I’m also enjoying a very short (but oh so well deserved) vacation. I have a friend over visiting from Spain and tomorrow I’ll be the one going to Spain to spend a few days in my beloved Seville, my home away from home. Sorry if I’m slow commenting or answering emails, but I won’t be around the computer much. I know you’ll forgive me because when I come back I’ll tell you all about my trip and I’ll give you some more ice cream. Deal?

Is this a Claire-trap? Are you ruthlessly trying to get me to climb the sides of the glass, fall in and remain stuck in honey, sitting in pools of melting cinnamon icecream? YEY! Move out of my way, this is MY trap!

OMG this looks so delicious. I am looking into getting an ice cream maker. And I love HONEY!

I just recently tried Haagan Dazs' honey vanilla, and love the hint of honey. This must be even better.

The Short (dis)Order Cook said...

the ice cream looks fabulous. I like cinnamon-y ice creams rather than just plain old vanilla with apple desserts. I can see this alongside a piece of apple cake, although it looks just as delicious by itself!

Very nice as a farewell for the summer here, in the North of Spain

¡¡¡ Has estado en Sevilla !!! Y yo sin saberlo... He estado tan ocupada con el SUGAR09 que no me ha dado tiempo ni a leer blogs ni a nada de nada.

Espero que lo hayas pasado bien por allí. Seguro que sí.

Mmmmm. Yo mientras disfrutaré imaginando el saborcillo a canela de este helado.
