Coffee Ice Cream: BAKED Sunday Mornings

Coffee is essential to me in the mornings.  Especially as the new school year approaches my two cups a day will be critical.  I am odd though in that I like my coffee as a vehicle for carrying other flavors.  I am all about the tasty flavored creamers, syrups and such.  I am eagerly anticipating the arrival of pumpkin spice flavors at the coffeeshops this fall.  Coffee is also one of the foods that Zach used to 'hate' but now enjoys (add to that list hot dogs and olives).  I'd like to think I had a little to do with his change of opinion.  If I would have made this ice cream previously he probably would have made a disgusted face and said ew.  Now he will gladly help me eat it!  It is rich and delicious and perfectly coffee-y.  The small addition of Kahlua is perfect.  I made just one change -- reversing the amounts of cream and milk.  I opted for 2% milk instead of whole since it's what we normally drink, so I used 2 cups of cream to offset the loss of fat in the milk switch and did 1 and 3/4 cups of milk.  It still turned out perfectly creamy and with great texture (not icy!).

I agree about the needing coffee more with the school year starting. If only this creamy ice cream could count as our morning coffee? Wishful thinking, I guess! Looks delicious!

I am always playing around with the ratios of cream, milk, and skim milk based on what I have in the fridge.

Your ice cream looks so creamy!

I just joined Baked Sunday Mornings and came across your site while looking for the link page. You and I share the same sentiments about coffee and flavorings and I can't wait for the fall and winter flavors to hit the coffeeshops! We are neighbors of sorts, as I live in a suburb of D.C.! Your ice cream looks scrumptious! : )

It's great to know that it tastes just as creamy with 2% milk. Coffee is definitely an essential to me in the mornings!

I love coffee ice cream but my husband doesn't so I very seldom make it :)

We really liked this, too - it has great texture & flavor even though I'm not a coffee drinker.

I love your blog's retro-style background!

I too am drinking much more coffee now that school is back in session. I haven't made coffee ice cream yet but it sounds so good right now. Thanks for the inspiration :)

I had recently made three flavors of ice cream, none of them coffee and I could not fit any more, in the freezer. Looking at yours, I think, I should have made one less. Coffee sounds great. Yours looks creamy and delish.
