Cooking Time

6 hrs incl freeze time

Serves

1.5 litres

Recipe Ingredients

  • 500 ml SPAR fresh or long-life cream
  • 1 can SPAR condensed milk
  • 30 ml SPAR instant coffee granules mixed with 15 ml boiling water
  • 4 large SPAR eggs, separated
  • 50 g pecan nuts, coarsely chopped
  • 15 ml SPAR butter


Recipe Method

  1. Whip the egg whites in a clean mixing bowl until almost stiff peak stage.
  2. In a separate bowl, but using the same beaters, whip the cream until stiff.
  3. Pour on the condensed milk and coffee, and using a large spoon, fold in the beaten egg whites gently but thoroughly.
  4. Freeze until half-set for 4-6 hours.
  5. During this time, melt the butter in a pan and toss the pecan nuts over medium heat to roast them. Set aside to cool.
  6. Gently stir into half-frozen ice cream, and then return to the freezer.

Hints & Tips

  • Dip the ice-cream scoop into a jug of boiling water, before each scoop. Remove the ice-cream from the freezer a few minutes before required. Hold the scoop up at a slight angle and drag it towards you, across the ice-cream surface, to create an increasing size ball as you work along.
  •  
  • SPAR long-life cream must be thoroughly chilled overnight before whipping.
  •  
  • The leftover egg yolks can be refrigerated in small containers for 3 days, covered with a light layer of either sugar or salt (depending on whether you intend using them up in savoury or sweet mixtures)
