Mexican Fried Ice Cream Recipe

Mexican Fried Ice Cream Recipe.... a nice Mexican dessert recipe to try !

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups Corn Flakes, crushed
  • 20 oz chocolate chip ice cream
  • 3½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1½ tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • Oil for deep-frying
  • Cinnamon mixed with sugar for garnish
  • Whipped cream for garnish
  • 4 maraschino cherries for garnish
INSTRUCTIONS

Divide the ice cream into 4 balls. Freeze them solid, which will take around 2 hours. Combine the Corn Flakes, sugar, and cinnamon and divide between 2 pie plates. Beat the eggs with the water. Roll each ice cream ball in the Corn Flakes mixture then dip the coated ball in the egg wash. Roll the ball in the other Corn Flake mixture, pressing the coating on firmly. Freeze these balls for 5 or 6 hours. Shape the tortillas like hourglasses by cutting off curved slices from two opposite sides, so that the ice cream can rest on one end and the other end can be a decorative fan.

Heat the oil in a deep fryer or wok. Place the tortilla between two large spoons, with the smaller one on top. The base of the tortilla should be in the bigger spoon to form a basket. Rest the other part of the tortilla on the spoon handle. Deep-fry it until crisp. Drain and then sprinkle with some cinnamon sugar.
Deep-fry the ice cream balls for 30 to 45 seconds. Place each tortilla in a large-stemmed glass, with the fan part vertically above the glass. Place the ice cream ball in the base of the tortilla. Top with whipped cream and a cherry. The Mexican dessert recipe is ready to serve...nice !

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 quarts goat's milk
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda dissolved in 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 large Mexican vanilla bean, split open, or 1 tablespoon Mexican vanilla extract
INSTRUCTIONS

In a large, non-iron pot, mix together the vanilla, sugar and milk. Place it over a medium heat and stir continuously until the sugar dissolves and the milk begins to simmer. Remove from the heat and add the dissolved baking soda. It will bubble up. When it has finished bubbling, return the pot to the heat. Turn the heat down so the mixture is simmering quickly but not boiling. Stir regularly until the mixture turns golden. This takes about an hour.
As the milk starts to thicken, stir it more frequently. Make sure it does not stick to the bottom of the pot. Drop a teaspoon of the mixture into some water. The cajeta is ready if a ball forms. Take
the pot off the heat and allow the crema de cajeta to cool. It should be of a medium thickness.

If it is too thick, add some hot water. If it is not thick enough, let it simmer some more. Allow the cajeta to cool and take out the vanilla bean. Strain the mixture through a mesh strainer into a bowl. Scrape the vanilla bean seeds into the cajeta and store in the refrigerator until you are ready to use it. Cajeta should be served warm.

Churros

Try this Mexican dessert recipe..Churros ...a classic Mexican's

Ingredients

* 1 cup (250 mL) water
* 1/4 cup (50 mL) butter
* 1 tbs (15 mL) granulated sugar
* 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
* 1 cup (250 mL) all purpose flour
* 2 eggs
* oil for deep frying

Cinnamon sugar topping:

* 1/2 cup (125 mL) sugar
* 2 tsp (10 mL) cinnamon

Cooking Instructions

1. In a medium saucepan, combine the water, butter 1 tbsp. (15 mL) of sugar and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat. As soon as the mixture comes to a boil, add the flour all at once and cook, stirring, until the batter sticks together and comes away from the sides of the saucepan. Remove from heat and let cool for a minute or two. Add the eggs and beat with an electric mixer until the dough is smooth and well blended. The dough will be fairly thick.
2. Pour enough oil into a deep fryer, electric skillet or wok to a depth of at least 2 inches (5 cm). Preheat to 375 degrees F (190degrees C).
3. Spoon the dough into a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch (0.5 cm) star-shaped tip. (The ridges make the churros nice and crisp – but if you only have a round tip, you can use that instead.) When the oil reaches the right temperature, pipe out 2 to 3-inch (5 to 7-cm) lengths of dough directly into the hot oil, leaving plenty of room between them so that they can cook evenly.
4. Fry until golden brown on all sides -- 3 to 4 minutes, approximately. Remove from oil, drain briefly on paper towel, then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar topping. Repeat with the remaining
dough.
5. Serve churros as soon as possible after frying.
