I'm so happy my fried ice cream was a success! :)
I made fried ice cream for the first time today and i was amazed how the ice cream still hold its originality without melting or changing in shape. It didn't spills out from the bread too.
Hubby request for fried ice cream since early May, but due to baking cakes/cuppies reason, I don't have much time to make it. Until I saw wency (a blogger friend) posted her fried ice cream on Instagram 2 days ago and showed it to hubby, he urges me to make it.
I myself found it quite interesting though. Wency said the method was so easy! So I determined to make my own fried ice cream too.
Hubby likes it so much and he likes it when it soft inside and crunchy outside. Superdelicious! Perfect for tea time. You can try to do it at your home too! The ingredients are so easy to get. :)
So, here's the recipe.
Ice Cream (any flavour you like),
Cooking oil for deep fry (I used corn oil)
Place ice cream at the center of a slice of bread.
Put another a slice of bread on top of it and press the bread by using ramekin to make it round shape. (You can use a small bowl/cup too )
This is how they look. Two slices of bread stick up together with ice cream in the middle of it.
Coat the outer part with beaten egg. And put the bread on a plate of breadcrumbs. Cover the whole bread with breadcrumbs.
The whole bread now covered with breadcrumbs.
Put each of them inside plastic bag. And chill for few hours.
( I chilled them for the whole night. )
In a deep heavy pot, heat the cooking oil. Gently place the bread into the oil, be careful not to splatter the hot oil. (You must heat the oil until it is very hot!) Dip the bread only for few seconds, or until it turns in gold brown color as in picture below.
Remember not to fry the bread too long as it might melted the ice cream. So just few seconds will do. (I didn't managed to take pic during the deep fry session because I wanted to fry them quickly haha )
Tadaa!.. Here are my fried ice cream!.. :)
I cut it in two and amazingly the ice cream didn't melt. :)
Close up. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Okay that's it for now.
It's so easy right?.. So try it yourself. Trust me, it'll turn out nice too!
Just remember not to fry the bread too long okay :)
