Baileys Ice Cream

Baileys Ice Cream Here's an alcoholic delight... Baileys ice cream. Yum! Another success with the Philips ice cream maker. Just remember though that alcohol affects the freezing time of the ice cream - it will take longer than usual and the ice cream maker will not be able to freeze it completely. You will need to store the ice cream in the freezer for a few hours or overnight (if you have the patience) before serving. This recipe can serve up to 4 people or 2 really alcoholic ones:

70 g castor sugar
1 egg yolk
7 fl. oz. full cream milk
1 1/2 fl. oz. cream
3 fl. oz. Baileys

  1. Beat egg yolk with sugar and a bit of milk (about 50 cc) until mixture is light and frothy.
  2. Add in cream and beat the egg yolk mixture again until all is combined.
  3. Gently heat up the rest of the milk in a saucepan, stirring constantly. Do not boil!
  4. Slowly pour the hot milk into the egg yolk mixture and stir at the same time. Make sure the mixture is properly combined and the sugar is dissolved.
  5. Pour egg yolk mixture into saucepan and gently heat on a low flame for about 2 minutes. Stir constantly and do not allow to boil.
  6. Remove saucepan from heat and let cool. To speed this process, put saucepan in a shallow pan filled with ice cold water.
  7. Stir in Baileys.
  8. Once saucepan has cooled down, put it in the fridge to chill it further.
  9. Assemble your ice cream maker without the cooling container as per the instructions provided with your unit.
  10. Take your egg yolk mixture out of the fridge and put it in something you can easily use for pouring.
  11. Remove your cooling container from the freezer and insert into your ice cream maker unit.
  12. Switch on your ice cream maker and slowly pour in your ice cream mix.
  13. Let your ice cream maker operate for about 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until the consistency of the mix has thickened and increased in volume.
  14. Next, stop your ice cream maker. At this point, you will notice that your ice cream is not as frozen as you'd like it to (in fact it is partially melting). This is due to the alcohol in the ice cream. Therefore, you will need to dish out the ice cream (preferably into an air-tight freezer container) and store it in the freezer for a few hours or overnight before serving.
