Recipe: How to Make Roasted Banana Ice Cream

Roasted Banana Ice CreamOver the weekend I came home with a cookbook called The All-American Dessert Book. As I started to thumb through it, I spotted a recipe for Banana Ice Cream. For the next 3 days I contemplated buying a carton of whipping cream.  Was it going to be worth it to pay roughly $5 for a quart of whipping cream just so I could try out this recipe?  It was a tough one, but in the end the want to make a batch of homemade ice cream prevailed.Roasted Banana Ice Cream recipe

Basically you cut/prick/poke holes in 4 ripe bananas and lay them down on a lined cookie sheet. Bake @350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until they’re deep brown in color.  But be careful, the smell of roasted bananas can be intoxicating! I seriously think someone should invent a roasted banana scented perfume. It smelled THAT GOOD.ice cream recipes

While your roasted bananas are cooling down, combine 5 fresh egg yolks, 1 1/2 cups whole milk, 1 1/2 cups of whipping cream, 2 tablespoons of orange juice {the recipe called for rum, but #1. I’m not a pirate #2. I don’t drink rum #3. We have no rum & #4. Orange juice makes an excellent substitution for rum}, 1 cup of sugar and a pinch of salt.Homemade Roasted Banana Ice Cream

And bring to an almost boil {but don’t boil!} in a double boiler. Cook over medium heat for about 5 -6 minutes or until it thickens a bit.  Remove from heat and stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.  Set aside.how to roast bananas
