This is my take on a deep fried Cinnamon sugar dusted churro with vanilla ice cream finished with a caramel drizzle, it’s a recipe I’ve been toying with for a couple of weeks and finally feel it’s exactly where I want it. It delivers on all aspects of the profile and is extremely satisfying and even more so moorish! If your a fan of doughnut/ice cream/desert profiles then don’t sleep on this one as the feed back I’ve had from my customers have been excellent so far. Give it a mix and if you enjoy my work please be so kind to leave a short review and rating for all to see. Happy mixing guys and gals and stay safe. 💙
Coconut Honeysuckle Ice Cream
MIxers' Club January Entry
This months assignment was to broaden our horizons, chose a profile you have not previously done and develop a recipe. The only profile I haven't touched on, or at least made a concentrated effort towards was Florals.
My original idea was Coconut and Honeysuckle Rice. I was excited by the prospect because it was an outside of the box recipe and rice was another profile I didn't get to mess with. However, this fell flat on it's face. I just could not get it to work together the way I was intending too. My original intention was a dry cooked rice, but FE Sweet Rice just can't do that on its own, it was leaving me with almost Coconut Rice Krispies in cream. I didn't have the flavors to get it to where it needed to be but if I was to revisit that concept, I think VT Rice Base or FLV Starch Base would be a solid step.
At an earlier point in time I was chatting with @isuamadog and he told me about Macapuno Ice Cream. Something I have never heard of. Immediately after the rice fell flat on its face that was the first thing I had thought of. Apothecary Elixirs (RIP) used to make a really damn good Coconut Honeysuckle Ice Cream and after closing up shop there is obviously no way to get it anymore so I decided to attempt my own version. While we were supposed to be outside of our comfort zone and Ice Cream is clearly my comfort zone it felt a little cheaty . However, I wanted to make coconut and honeysuckle happen. And thus Midnight was born.
LB VIC + HS VIC + TFA VS - The obvious. A super creamy slightly malty ice cream base. I was actually extremely surprised at how well the coconut paired up with the ice cream and brought this to a whole new level.
FLV Sweet Coconut and FA Coco'- This is my go to Coconut blend right here. If I'm doing a coconut recipe it will involve these two flavors. I usually start off at a 2:1 ratio and adjust the individual percentages according to the recipe. The combo brings a nice bold coconut flavor with next to no "sunscreen" off note.
FLV Coconut- Like most FLV stuff this one is a powerful flavor. Just a touch of this into the pairing of coconut brings a little bit of a coconut butter to add a bit of thickness to the coconut.
TFA Honeysuckle- Brings a little juicy sweetness in with a subtle floral note to wrap up the mix.
I've made a few minor adjustments to the recipe since the start. Playing with the coconut percentages as well as the honeysuckle. I have not yet, but I want to try and lower the Ice Cream Trinity to see how everything else plays with that. While I don't think lowering the ICT is exactly necessary as the mix is at a pretty good point where it is, I want to try that out just to see what happens. I did try and add some WS23 into it to see how it is cold, and 2 drops to a 15ml absolutely ruined the mix. It mutes basically everything but a bit of Coconut and Cream so that's a no go.
Walnut Ice Cream with caramel drizzle.
First the name, this is a Holy Nuts ice Cream beacuse i'm using the (Holy) Trinity of Vanilla ice cream (wich is awsame) and Nuts is for Fa Nut mix as is a generic nut flavour leading more towards a walnut flavour than other nuts. I think that using this combined you get a pretty nice upfront "walnut" ice cream.
The caramel drizzle is made by FW Butterscotch Ripple and WF Caramel Butter wich together add a nice drizzle of caramel on top this Holy Nuts Cream.
This combination works as good as my strawberry basil recipe posted a few years ago, view it here: https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/44489
The French Ice cream from Hangsen is absolute the top, combined with a little FLV Vanilla Pudding for some extra egg taste, and the combination of the different blueberries is rich and decadent, to finish a little FLV Basil adding that little spicy an cold feeling to the recipe.
I understand that the Blueberry Cream RF/SC is no more available (some shops still have them) but it is essential to this mix.
Please remember that this recipe is been made to my liking.
As a mixer you should taste the recipe and adjust the quantity of aromas and sweetness to your liking. I just provide the necessary building blocks.
There are a lot of Lemon Meringue Pie recipes on here, this is just another take on it.
This one is string on the butteriness, and cream. Light on the sugary meringue.
FE Lemon is chosen because it will outlast the steep needed for the custard. It can be substituted with your favourite lemon, just push it a bit higher to last through the steep.
FA Custard Premium is much maligned, and may be hard to get in your territory - it can be substituted with CAP Vanilla Custard if you choose.
HS French Vanilla IceCream can be swapped out with LB Vanilla Ice Cream should you choose.
Let it steep for a while in order to get the custards and creams to bloom.
21 Days is a good while for this.
An RY4 crossed with a very slight variation of eyemakepizza's Trinity Vanilla Ice Cream (https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/143364). When I think of Trinity, I can't help but imagine the pictures of the 1945 explosion from the atomic testing site Trinity, in Alamogordo . . . so, I made the ice cream sitting on top of the cone from an image of the explosion 0.016 seconds after detonation. Sweet, creamy, RY4 for your Christmas morning sweet-tooth.
This recipe is not at all original, it is all based around https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/143364#the_trinity_vanilla_ice_cream_by_eyemakepizza
Well this one started with me asking for free flavor samples in my last order. I was sent WF Molasses, and it smells soooo good!
Anyway, I had just recently tried @eyemakepizza's Trinity Vanilla Ice Cream, (which is AMAZING btw, go try it!) and thought it would be good with some of that Molasses.
Added in some FW Hazelnut for a little bit of nuttiness, and some INW Biscuit for a cone.
WOW!! It tastes amazing! SO good, even after the shake, but I am sure with some steeping it will be even better.
Give it a try, let me know what you think. It is still in progress so always open to suggestions.
