Extra Hot Ice Cream

  • Prep Time
    4 hours
  • Difficulty
  • Servings
  • 8 room temperature eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup Mike’s Hot Honey - Extra Hot, plus more for topping
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup full fat milk
  • 1 tbsp good quality vanilla extract

Divide the egg whites and yolks.

Add the egg yolks, sugar, honey and salt to a standing mixer. Beat on medium speed with the paddle attachment until pale light and airy (approx 5 minutes).

Heat the cream and milk over a low heat, stirring occasionally. The mixture should be hot but not boiling.

With the mixer speed on low, slowly pour in the cream mixture. Mix for 3-4 mins until well combined. Pour the contents of the mixer back into the pan, and heat over medium-low heat stirring constantly.

Heat until it thickens and coats the back of a spoon, but don’t let it boil. Bring off the heat and add the vanilla.

Pour the ice cream mix into a bowl through a fine strainer, and cool the bowl over an ice bath for 10-15 mins stirring occasionally. Place in the fridge until cool.

Add the mixture to your ice cream maker in a steady stream. Churn according to your machine’s instructions then let it firm up in an airtight container in the freezer for a few hours.

Serve with your favorite toppings, plus a generous drizzle of Mike’s Hot Honey Extra Hot.

Keys to Making Ice Cream

Before diving into the recipe, remember a few key pointers when creating ice cream. Making ice cream by hand is excellent if you're just getting started because you can easily manage the texture and consistency of the final product.

One of the most crucial aspects in maintaining the softness and creaminess of your ice cream is having a suitable container or storage solution for all that goodness once it has been prepared.

There are a few important guidelines to follow while producing homemade ice cream.

First, using an ice cream maker or whipping some up by hand with an old-fashioned whisk is the finest way to make ice cream. Whatever method you select, gently add the ingredients and mix until they are just incorporated. This will guarantee that the final product is always creamy and tasty.

Another important factor to consider when making homemade ice cream is keeping it soft and scoopable. This can be done by adding alcohol like brandy or vodka – around two tablespoons should do the trick.

Additionally, ice cream's texture and flavor must be preserved by storing it appropriately. To accomplish this, keep the container in the freezer with the lid snugly on, and take it out no more than five minutes before scooping.

We hope you enjoyed this recipe for our delicious hot honey ice cream. With the right ingredients and techniques, you can create a unique and special treat that your friends and family will love.
