Homemade Coffee Ice Cream

I mentioned in the "Who's Counting" Cake post that Philip and I made dessert for my in-laws 50th anniversary party. I wanted to post the coffee ice cream recipe. If you have an ice cream maker and you like coffee - you must try this! Whenever we make it for people - they LOVE it! We even got a cheer out of my sweet Mother-in-Law when we announced that we made coffee ice cream for the anniversary party. Let's not waste anymore time, here it is......

Homemade Coffee Ice Cream
Source: Kitchen of He Cooks & She Bakes
Servings: 1 and 1/2 quarts

2 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 cups heavy whipping cream (or one 16 oz. carton)
1/2 cup espresso (or coffee if you don't have an espresso maker - the espresso tastes better because it's stronger)
whole milk (the milk should fill ice cream maker container to proper level)

Whisk the eggs for about 2 minutes. Slowly add the sugar while whisking. Stir in the heaving whipping cream and espresso. Add enough milk to reach the amount required for a 1 and 1/2 quart ice cream maker. When everything is added it ends up being about 5 cups of liquid. Chill the mixture in the fridge and pour into ice cream maker. Make ice cream, freeze and enjoy!

Step by Step

The makings!

 All stirred up...

 Pour in the machine and press...

 ON! As simple as that.

 When it looks like this - it's good to go!

 Ummmm....hello creamy heaven!

For those of you who like whip precious nephew Adrian loves ice cream with whip cream on top. The cute thing is that he calls it "squirty". When he was here a few weeks ago we made homemade squirty. I highly suggest adding squirty to any ice cream! Here is the recipe:

Homemade Whip Cream (aka Homemade Squirty)

 Adrian is so excited about making homemade squirty with Uncle Philip.

 Whip the heavy whipping cream and confectioners' sugar together on low until frothy - about 1 minute.

 Increase speed to high until the cream forms peaks - anywhere from 1-3 minutes.

 Want some squirty Aunt Risa?

 Why yes I do.....on my ice cream!
