Brown Sugar Ice Cream
This Brown Sugar Ice Cream recipe is delicious on its own but the possibilities are endless when you use it as a base flavor and add in your own toppings.
Remember my ice cream addiction this summer that we’ve talked about? Well it isn’t going anywhere but downhill. And by downhill I actually mean uphill because I finally bought an ice cream maker. Oh it’s ON. There is no stopping me now. I mean, would you want to- really? I spend my days dreaming up all kinds of ice cream flavors. Then I spend my nights eating them. Well, there is ice cream eating going on at breakfast too.
My husband and I recently celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary (no we are not OLD- we were mere children when we got married). While I ordered tea one morning for breakfast my husband ordered espresso ice cream. When you’re in Amish country they don’t just give you espresso flavored ice cream. Oh no. They POUR the espresso RIGHT OVER your ice cream thankyouverymuch. It’s like coffee with a side of ice cream so it’s totally okay for breakfast. I was kind of sad about it until I realized that they put fresh vanilla beans in my tea latte. That made up for me not ordering ice cream for breakfast.
When I ripped open the box that came with my ice cream maker I gathered the ingredients to make the first, most basic recipe. Except I’m horrible at following directions when it comes to well, basically any recipe so I subbed in brown sugar. It was phenomenal. We can talk toppings, and add-ins later but please listen to me when I tell you that Brown Sugar Ice Cream is the perfect base flavor. The brown sugar gives just a hint of caramel flavor and a beautiful creamy color. Besides I think that brown sugar and vanilla are just meant to be together. Just like me and my husband 😉 Try it!
