Lemon Bourbon Cornflake Ice Cream
I got the idea for this recipe from eating an ice cream called “Secret Breakfast” at a creamery in the Mission named Humphrey Slocombe’s. The flavor consisted of bourbon ice cream with cornflakes - which tastes much better than it sounds. I adapted David Lebowitz’s recipe for Zabaglione Gelato in his amazing book The Perfect Scoop by using bourbon instead of Marsala wine and adding some cornflakes. The result speaks for itself - I strongly suggest trying it out.
Zest of one lemon
1 cup whole milk
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
2/3 cup sugar
Big Pinch of salt
6 egg yolks
1/4 cup bourbon (I used Marker’s Mark)
Handful of cornflakes
Warm the milk, sugar and salt on medium high heat until the milk steams and lightly froths. Zest the whole lemon into the warm milk. Pour the cream into a large bowl and set a mesh strainer on top.
In another bowl, whisk together the egg yolks until they begin to change into a lighter color and froth up a bit. Slowly pour the warmed lemon milk into the yolks, whisking constantly. Return the mixture into the pan or pot in which you had warmed the milk.
Stir the mixture constantly over medium heat with a heatproof spatula, scraping the bottom as you stir, until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Test the mixture’s doneness by using an instant read thermometer or by running your finger down the back of the spoon to see if the streak stays. As soon as the custard is cooked, pour it through the strainer into the cool cream. Add the bourbon and stir until cool over an ice bath.
Chill the mixture at least 3-4 hours, and then freeze in your ice cream machine according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Sprinkle with cornflakes before serving.
