I am obsessed with dulce de leche, who isn’t? its incredible, I think it goes really well with coffee (which I don’t like, weird I know) I made this super simple soft ice cream with just a tin of dulce de leche some cream and I little brewed coffee. even though I don’t like drinking coffee I loved it in this.
I whipped the cream coffee and dulce de leche until thick then froze it, no need for an ice cream machine and it was the smoothest ice cream I have ever tried.
I think that dulce de leche doesn’t freeze that well in my experience so it made the ice cream easy to scoop and was really smooth.
I roasted the plums with some brown sugar, cinnamon and star anise and thyme.
I picked up the Breton biscuits in france but I have seen a recipe here
