  • 3 tbsp instant coffee granules

  • 8 pieces of dairy fudge, squashed into smaller chunks

  • 4 egg yolk
  • 100g golden caster sugar


  1. Place a container in the freezer. Split the vanilla pod lengthways, scrape the seeds out with the point of the knife and tip into a pan with the milk, cream and pod. Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat and leave to infuse for at least 20 mins. For the best flavour, this can be done a few hours beforehand and left to go cold (see tip, below).

  2. In a large bowl, whisk the sugar and egg yolks together for a few minutes until they turn pale and fluffy. Put the vanilla cream back on the heat until it’s just about to boil. Stir through the coffee granules then carefully sieve the liquid onto the yolks, beating with the whisk until completely mixed.

  3. At this point, get a large bowl of iced water and sit a smaller bowl in it. Pour the custard back into the pan and cook on the lowest heat, stirring slowly and continuously, making sure the spoon touches the bottom of the pan, for about 10 mins until thickened (see rules, below). Strain the custard into the bowl sitting in the iced water and leave to cool, then churn until scoopable (see methods, below).

  4. Layer the cold container with ice cream and spoonfuls of coffee sauce and fudge pieces. Freeze overnight and serve.

Really great recipe - the ice cream is gorgeous - restaurant quality result.

Couldn't find coffee sauce so combined a can of condensed milk with a big ole slug of coffee essence and drizzled that over instead. Worked perfectly.

Will make double the quantity next time though - only makes about a pint of ice cream.

This ice cream is amazing! I originally made it so I could have a treat in the freezer that my boyfriend wouldn't snuffle up first as he is not a fan of coffee. Alas though - this ice cream changed his mind.

Only think I would change is not to put as much coffee in as it was a bit strong.

Just discovered this recipe again ,I had forgotten how good it was, I live in Australia where Roquefort cheese only arrived a few years ago so forget about coffee sauce!! Caramel sauce is a good alternative, but I'll just have to imagine how good the 'real' recipe would be.

I haven't made this, but I'd like to. But coffee sauce? What is that? And where would I find it?
