Home-made Mango Ice-Cream

Wow, it has been nearly a month since I have updated my space, as some of you may have known the reason to my disappearance is due to demise of my paternal aunt. I was in my parents house for two whole weeks, busy with prayers and rituals, now I'm back to my house and started blogging. I cooked many dishes but no time to take good pictures for my blog. Thank you so much to all my friends who have sent their condolences. 

Now let's get back to today's recipe, I made this ice-cream sometime ago but couldn't find time to blog about it. My husband loves ice-cream, it is a must have in our fridge as he love to have it while watching tv, I have planned to make ice-cream at home, this is a very easy method and anyone can make it at home. Come, let's see how easy it is to make this ice-cream;

2 cups of mango puree (blend mango without adding water)
2 cups of milk powder
2 cups of chilled milk
2 cups of cream
1 cup of sugar
2 tbsp of cornflour
A pinch of salt
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 cup of chopped mango

Blend all the ingredients above except for chopped mango, and pour all those things blended into an airtight container, mix in the chopped mango to the ice-cream and freeze it for few hours.

Remove all the frozen ice-cream, blend until smooth and refreeze overnight. I poured some of the ice-cream into individual glasses for easy serving. Now our home-made Mango Ice-cream is ready to be served. Best eaten on a hot sunny day. do try and let me know how it turned out for you!

Not so Trifle

This is a dessert invented in the event of not to waste food, I have used the Salted Brownies that I made before, I spared some brownies crumbled to try making black forest trifle but I was too busy to go and purchase ingredients for it. So, I whipped up  chocolate butter-cream for this dish and used the balance strawberries I had in my pantry. Let's check how to make this;

2 cups of crumbled brownies
1 cup of chocolate butter-cream
2 whole strawberries 
1 tbsp of cocoa syrup

For Chocolate Butter-Cream
1 cup of unsalted butter (softened)
3 1/2 cups of icing sugar
1/2 cup of cocoa powder
4 tbsp of heavy cream
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1/2 tsp of salt

First of all prepare the butter-cream and set aside, whip the softened butter, gradually sift in icing sugar and cocoa powder and mix for a couple of minutes then add vanilla extract, salt and heavy cream, do not over beat or it will be curdled.

Now for the setting of the trifle, get a few glasses first add crumbled brownies, then spoon the butter -cream and alternate with brownies and butter-cream again. Finally pour some cocoa syrup and garnish with sliced strawberry.

Now our Not So Trifle is ready to be served, do try and let me know how it turned out for you!
