TWD - Chocolate ganache icecream
I have never been much of a chocolate icecream fan - I am the one who eats the strawberry and vanilla flavours out of the Neopolitan icecream and leaves the chocolate. Accordingly, I am not a reliable judge of this week's TWD recipe, chosen by Katrina of Baking and Boys, being Chocolate Ganache Icecream.
Love chocolate - check. Love dessert - check. Love icecream - check. Just not chocolate icecream.
This icecream tastes OK - it is very rich, and if you are a chocolate icecream fan, you'd probably love this.
I had fun making it, and I think it looks cute in my Coney Island icecream cups. It looks a little soft as I chose to photograph straight after being churned, because once it goes hard in the freezer, I just don't have the patience to wait for it to be scoopable.
Thanks to Katrina for hosting us this week. You can check out the recipe in Dorie's book or at Katrina's site, and you can see what the other TWD bakers thought of it at the TWD website.
