Delicious coffee ice cream with a crunch.


  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons brewed black coffee
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup crushed walnuts


  • STEP 1
    In a bowl beat the yolks with sugar until creamy and lighter in color. In a saucepan, add the cream and milk. When it simmers, remove from heat.
  • STEP 2
    While whisking the eggs, gradually add the cream and milk mixture. To get a smoother, silkier texture, strain the mixture through a sieve and pour it back in the saucepan.
  • STEP 3
    Keep stirring the custard on medium heat until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Draw a line at the back of the spoon and if both ends don'€™t meet, the custard is ready. Remove from heat immediately and pour in different bowl.
  • STEP 4
    Add coffee and vanilla, and stir.
  • STEP 5
    Prepare a chilled water bath with cubes of ice. Place the bowl on top and keep stirring the custard until it cools.
  • STEP 6
    Cover the custard with plastic allowing the plastic to touch the custard'€™s surface. Refrigerate the custard overnight or 6 hours. This will thicken the custard and blend the flavors well.
  • STEP 7
    Transfer the custard to the chilled container of the ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • STEP 8
    When done, transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in the freezer.
