Nicks favourite thing…

I love how simple this dessert is! But it’s so delicious. All the flavours of apple pie but in an ice cream sundae with caramel! I also love how easy it is to make the ice-cream. Make it ahead of time and freeze it overnight and just scoop it up when you’re ready to use it!

What does it taste like?

The ice cream has flecks of vanilla beans in it, making it a delicious vanilla ice-cream that is creamy. The stewed apples are spiced with warm notes of cinnamon and the caramel sauce? It’s bloody delicious! Salted and so tasty! If you’ve never made caramel sauce from scratch, you’re really missing out!

 

What are the ingredients I need?

Heavy cream – this is the type of cream you use for whipping.

Sweetened condensed milk – this is the only thing that will sweeten the ice cream, whilst still keeping it smooth.

Vanilla bean paste – alternatively you can use a vanilla bean or vanilla extract.

Green apples – peeled and diced.

Brown sugar – light or dark is fine.

Unsalted butter – salted is also fine.

Cinnamon – I used powdered cinnamon which is a classic flavour combo with apples.

Lemons – you’ll want to use fresh lemons in this recipe. It makes all the difference and the flavour is unmatched.

Salted caramel sauce – if you’re looking for a great flavourful home-made caramel sauce recipe, then give my recipe a go!
