Ice cream and bread? OH YAS!!!
My home-baker friend Anuja, who bakes up a pretty good storm with chocolates and all kinds of desserts on order, now offers up a range of artisanal ice creams, that are eggless and preservative-free!!
As we conversed over the phone, I started to ponder what I could do with her ice cream – and I remembered something vague from the back of my mind – an ice cream sandwich but minus the cookies!
In case you’re starting to doubt my sanity, let’s go through a bit of cultural travel:
Gelato stuffed into a brioche bread with a sprinkle of chopped nuts is a typical Sicilian breakfast foods. In Singapore, rainbow colored sliced bread flavoured in pandan is folded around a brick of ice cream. In Philippines, ice cream is placed in pandesal, round bread roll. Thailand and Vietnam offer up ice cream sandwiches in long hot dog types breads stuffed with coconut-milk based ice cream scoops along with decadent toppings like sweet sticky rice, salty crushed peanuts, evaporated milk drizzle and chewy palm seeds.
So, without much further ado, let’s talk about our ice cream sandwich that we can make locally! Sourdough bread, toasted in glorious butter and sprinkle of sea salt, and decadent delicious Belgian Chocolate Ice Cream scooped between two slices. Perfect as a snack, a dinner on a hot day, and in my case, an indulgent breakfast in bed!
So go ahead, make that call to Anuja, place your order of her delicious decadent ice creams and get cooking!
