Julian and I went to Julian’s dad’s house to have an ice cream making morning. I wanted to try this flavor because we recently went to The Scoop, which has this flavor and it’s just THE BEST. I looked up a recipe and found this one from David Lebovitz. The most important part of making this ice cream is caramelizing the bananas (like bananas foster).
3 ripe bananas chopped into chunks
2/3 cup brown sugar
Brownies, chopped into small chunks
1. Preheat the oven to 390F. In a pan or cookie sheet, coat the bananas in brown sugar. Bake for around 40 minutes, and flip after 20, or until the bananas are caramelized and golden.
2. While doing that, make the custard.
3. Here is where we changed the recipe a little. They said to “put the bananas and all the other ingredients (except brownie chunks) in a blender and whizz until smooth,” but instead we folded the bananas into the ice cream mixture while it was in the ice cream maker, and put the brownie in towards the very end (when it’s almost done).
