*COOKING WITH OUR DIANE*
While the Granary Tea Room remains closed, baking Queen Diane is giving us the occasional glimpse into her usually top secret recipe book. When it's hot, a cool ice cream is just the job, isn't it?
Here's Diane's recipe for yummy Brandy Ice Cream...
Brandy Ice Cream (This recipe does not need an ice cream maker)
2 Egg Whites
6 ozs. Demerara Sugar
6 tablespoons Water
1 tsp. Vanilla
15 fl.ozs Cream (Whipping or Double)
4 tbs. Brandy
Whisk egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff and forming peaks.
Dissolve the sugar in the water, boil rapidly for 3 mins. Then pour onto the egg whites whilst whisking.
Add vanilla and brandy. whisk until thick.
Whisk cream and fold in.
Freeze for 5 hours, stir part way through freezing to break up larger ice crystals.
