Hi I am Maggie from MADCAT Photography, as well as being landscape photographers we are responsible for putting together Blueprint Interiors web site and blog pages.
In order to start things off, I have hijacked Tracy’s blog to bring you her first recipe.
Now its winter I love my comfort food and this is the richest and most delicious chocolate Ice Cream I have ever found, and so easy to make. Yes I know winter and ice cream but still it is yummy!
It is based on a recipe from the Vincent Price Cookbook, and yes that is the same Vincent Price that used to feature in horror movies. He and his wife used to produce cookbooks too!
1/4 cup sugar
6 ounces semisweet chocolate pieces
3 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups cream, whipped (I dont recommend using thickened cream for this)
In a small saucepan combine the sugar with 1/3 cup water. Bring to the boil and boil rapidly for 3 minutes.
In a blender, or food processor, put the semisweet chocolate and add the hot syrup, cover the blender/food processor, and blend on high for 20 seconds until sauce is smooth.
Add the 3 egg yolks, stir to combine and then blend for 10 seconds.
Fold the chocolate mixture into the whipped cream carefully.
Spoon into a freezer safe container, cover with waxed paper and freeze for 2-3 hours.
The great thing about this is it freezes beautifully, no need to keep taking it out and blending it:)
