My daughter (aka my part-time photog) requested for coffee ice-cream - her favorite. So i prowled through my books for what i think is the best coffee ice-cream. Easy to make and great tasting. Since i had good results with David Lebovitz's The Perfect Scoop for my earlier chocolate ice-cream, i decided to use his coffee ice-cream recipe.
The recipe and steps of how to make is shown by Simply Recipes. However she uses decaf coffee beans. I never thought of the caffeine issues though....what was in my mind was using the best aromatic coffee beans. After looking around, I settled for Starbucks espresso coffee beans (i wanted to use Lavazza but i can't find in the supermarket i was at).
I have to say that the ice cream taste great! I'm not a coffee drinker but i have to say the coffee ice-cream is extremely fragrant, velvety smooth and yummy! I'm not exaggerating when i say this coffee ice-cream is really good! I really have to say that David Lebovitz's recipes are absolutely great! Seriously..i am thinking of getting more of his books except that some of them are out of print and thus expensive..right now in my mind, i am thinking of ordering his Book of Chocolate from amazon...perhaps i'll wait for his new book which is suppose to be out soon..and order it together. :)

About Me: Faithy
Hi, I'm Faithy. Faithy is my alter-ego. I was told back then when internet first started that it was dangerous to put your real name on the web...LOL.. (seriously not kidding!). So it was how this name Faithy came about and has stuck with me ever since. And as a matter of fact, I like it better than my real name..esp when I share the exact same name as my sister.. :D
Anyway, I started my blog initially on vox as a way to remind myself what i have baked and hopefully to see some progress along the way too..:)
