Update: Kitchenaid Ice Cream Recipe 2020-02-22
Well I am a moron. Last night I tried to make some ice cream but when I chucked the ingredients in the bowl I was in a hurry and put in SALT instead of SUGAR. I had not even noticed until I found myself wondering why the mixture refused to thicken up in the freeze bowl. Turns out, you CAN'T substitue sugar with salt... duuur!
Kitchenaid Ice Cream Recipe 2020-02-19
I have one of these fancy Kitchenaid mixers, and also the ice cream attachment for it. I have seen a number of recipes for making ice cream in this device and have been working on my own recipe based on trial and error. So I guess this post is a bit of a work in progress while I figure out the bugs and get just the right combination of ingredients. Basically what I am looking for is something that has chocolate and peanut butter, and this is intended to be [sort of] Kitchenaid specific, so if you have a different ice cream maker it might be a little different.
|2 cups||Heavy Cream (35% to 38%)|
|1 cup||Half & Half (10%)|
|1/2 cup||Cocoa Powder|
First make sure your ice cream mixer bowl is good and frozen. A full day in the freezer at least will help make sure it is cold enough. Seriously, this does not require significant effort and being "very cold" seems to help quite a bit. Then, start mixing:
- Put all of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk them until it starts to get a bit frothy
- Secure the frozen mixer bowl to the mixer stand
- Put the ice cream mixer paddle in the bowl and the paddle gear on the mixer head
- Pour the well-whisked ingredients in to the bowl
- Run the mixer on the lowest setting
- Watch and wait
The mixture should thicken up as it cools. I have heard that the spring loaded gear head will start to click when the mixture is thick enough but mine doesn't seem to do this. I have also found that I should wait until the mixture is almost ready to start adding the little peanut butter cups that I have been getting at Bulk Barn.
I will write more soon.
