Christmas. We need to feed people. It never seems to stop.
I'm trying to get better at entertaining, which means I'm trying to sit down and enjoy people more and run around less. Enter my Lemon Ice Cream.
If you need a fast, delicious dessert, it'll take you 2 minutes to make in the morning.
Lemon Ice Cream
- 2 large lemons
- 1 cup sugar (caster/berry sugar is best)
- 600 ml thickened cream (2 cups whipping cream for Canadians, a reduced amount because it's thinner).
Zest the lemons (yes, you have to) and juice them. Mix zest, lemon juice, sugar and cream. Pour into a metal cake tin and freeze for a few hours.
You'll serve 8-10 happy people. This lemon ice cream is so full of flavour (okay, and cream and sugar) that you don't need much. It tastes like...
...sunshine in a bowl. It truly does!
The bottom will melt a bit, so get it to the table fast. And when you're asked for the recipe (which you will be, I promise), please feel free to share...from my Aussie home to yours, wherever you may be.
Sunshine in a bowl. We all need more of that.
