The Novel Bakers are in Ireland again, this time we're looking at Home Made Winter,
a charming cookbook by Yvette Van Boven. I love all things Irish and go all out for St. Patrick's Day, so it isn't surprising that one recipe stood out:
Homemade Irish cream liqueur.
Homemade Irish Cream Liqueur
Yield: approximately 4 1/2 cups
3/4 cup heavy cream
1- 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/4 cups Irish whiskey * adjust to your preference
1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
Place ingredients in a blender. Don't over mix--just blend everything.
Pour liqueur into clean bottles and cap. Will keep 2 months in the
fridge--if it lasts that long.
There's so much mystique around liqueurs, I never dreamed of making it. But it was
a snap. The taste will put you over the moon.
We love Bailey's Irish cream over vanilla ice cream, but I wanted to try something different and served the liqueur over double brownie chocolate chip ice cream. It was ambrosial.
You can see the liqueur pooled around the ice cream.
Monday's post, Smoked Pulled Pork, which was unbelievably delicious, can be seen HERE.
