Caramel Cheesecake Ice Cream

Hey Zebras,

I declare this day officially Ice Cream Friday! The weekend is coming and that’s a good reason to celebrate, right? In addition, I had to finally test the ice cream maker add-on for my KitchenAid 🙂

No matter what you are celebrating – this ice cream recipe will be the making of any party! Ice cream, cheesecake, caramel – I mean, how do you top that? Maybe with a large dose of spring sunshine, but as we can never rely on that, let’s get on with this lovely recipe.

Caramel cheesecake ice cream

for about 1 litre of ice-cream

  • 2 large eggs
  • 150g sugar
  • 200ml cream
  • 300g cream cheese
  • 50g crumbled biscuits (eg ladyfingers)
  • 125g caramel cream (eg from San Ignacio)

 

Prepare your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer information.

Beat the eggs in a large bowl for 1-2 minutes until they are creamy. Gradually add the sugar and beat for about another minute. In a second bowl, mix the cream cheese until creamy, then stir in the cream. Combine both bowls and stir until everything has mixed well. Leave to chill for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator.

Pour into the ice cream maker and freeze for 30-45 minutes, depending on the machine. Add half of the ice cream to a freezer-safe container. Spread half of the caramel cream and biscuit crumbs on the ice and mix lightly with a fork. Add the remaining ice cream on it, cover it with caramel and biscuits and store in the freezer until ready to serve.

Whether serving alone or together with a warm chocolate cake – this is a world class dessert and insanely delicious!

 

Remain sweet & HAPPY ICECREAM MAKING!

Chocolate Cream Slices | #Degustabox

Hey my Zebras!

YAAAAY, my exams are over!!! – I have university behind me for another semester and my life can get back to normal! Let’s have cake to celebrate – a nice, chocolatey one… hmm, are you in?

This recipe is super simple and can be done very quickly. Perfect for making at the drop of a hat or when you have a sudden celebration in your life – recovering from examinations, for example 🙂

A really great product from the German #Degustabox in January is also used in here – the Double Choc Biscuits from Leibniz (for readers outside of Germany I am sure you can get creative with your own biscuits 😉 ). But I can really recommend those surprise (grocery) deliveries by Degustabox – maybe it’s available in your country, too? Here’s a link to the UK version.

Chocolate Cream Slices

makes 1 tray of cake

  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons hot water
  • 150g sugar
  • 80g flour
  • 80g cornflour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 packets (à 37g) of chocolate pudding powder
  • 900ml milk
  • 50g sugar
  • 75g dark chocolate
  • 300g cream
  • 500g sour cream
  • 75g sugar
  • 4 packs Leibniz Double Choc (or whatever cookies you think would work)

 

Preheat the oven to 200 ° C (180 ° C fan-forced or gas mark 6) and line a deep baking tray with baking paper.

For the sponge, mix together the eggs and water, then slowly sprinkle the sugar and beat until fluffy. Fold in gently the flour, cornflour and baking powder. Pour the batter into prepared pan, smooth and bake for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

Mix 100ml milk with the pudding powder and sugar until smooth. Bring the remaining milk in a saucepan to a boil. Once boiling, stir until the mixture thickens. Then add the chocolate and stir until it’s melted. Pour on the cooled sponge, spread evenly and allow to cool.

Zap the cream, sour cream and sugar with food processor or hand mixer until it becomes a thick cream. Spread onto the cooled pudding and top with the Leibniz Double Choc.

The cake also tastes great when it’s left for a while and still can be enjoyed the next day 🙂

[December 8th] Alphabet biscuits

Fräulein Zebra Xmas

I wish you a happy Monday!

To make the day (and the whole week) at least as sweet as you are I have a great recipe for you:

 

Alphabet biscuits

RussischBrot1

RussischBrot5

 

I loved them when I was growing up…  I remember searching the whole box just to find the one letter that I needed to finish writing my name.

These are super crunchy and chocolatey and pretty easy to make.

Sounds awesome, right?

 

Alphabet biscuits

makes about 120

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 150g sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
  • 150g flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Beat egg whites and salt until it starts to get stiff. Slowly add sugar and vanilla sugar and go on whipping until it’s really firm and the sugar dissolved (about 3 minutes). Mix flour, cocoa, cardamom and cinnamon, sift onto the egg white and fold in carefully.

Cover serveral baking trays with parchment paper. Spoon the batter into a plastic piping bag and cut off a little tip. Now pipe the letters and let it sit for 15 minutes.

While you wait it’s time to heat up the oven to 350°F.

Bake each tray at a time for about 10 minutes. Let cool completely before serving.

Stay sweet & HAPPY BAKING!
