IMG_7149_fixThis was part of the dessert for the Custard dinner, and is based on a recipe from Alison Thompson’s book Sweet.

Ingredients

  • 8 egg yolks
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 50g Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
  • 400mL milk
  • 400mL thickened cream
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste
  • 100g honey

Method

  1. Separate the eggs, and place the yolks into a mixing bowl. Add the sugar and beat until it becomes pale and creamy.
  2. Put cream cheese into another mixing bowl and beat with a fork until it is very soft.
  3. Place the milk, cream, vanilla bean paste in a medium saucepan and heat until it begins simmering. Remove from heat.
  4. Place honey into a small saucepan over medium heat and stir with a metal spoon until the honey turns a dark golden colour.
  5. Immediately add the milky mixture to the honey (it will bubble) and then bring back to just simmering, and remove from the heat.
  6. Drizzle the milky mixture into the egg mixture, whisking all the while. Then pour this mixture back into a saucepan.
  7. Cook the mixture over a low heat, stirring regularly with a wooden spoon, until it reaches 79 degrees Celsius and slightly thickens.
  8. Pour into the bowl with the cream cheese, whisking all the while. Then strain into a 2L plastic container, and place in fridge overnight.
  9. Churn in an ice-cream maker until the mixture becomes thick and no longer expands in volume. Store in an air-tight container in the freezer until ready to serve.
