Hot cross bun ice cream

I found this fab recipe in the Tesco magazine and had to make it.  I highly recommend it.  I can’t find the recipe on their website to link you to.  Their recipe suggests using brown hot cross buns, but I just used normal ones.

Hot cross bun ice cream

Hot cross bun ice cream (Serves 4)

2 hot cross buns
1 tbsp light brown sugar
397g tin condensed milk
600ml double cream
2 tsp vanilla extract

1. Lightly toast the two hot cross buns. Allow to cool slightly then whizz in a food processor to make breadcrumbs.  Add the sugar and whizz again.

2. Meanwhile, whisk together the condensed milk, double cream and vanilla extract until the mixture has thickened.

3. Mix in the hot cross bun crumbs and pour into a plastic container.  Freeze overnight.

You need to let the ice cream soften out of the freezer before serving.  I served my ice cream with an orange sauce – mix 4 tbsp fine cut marmalade which has been warned in the microwave with 1 tbsp Cointreau.
