No-Churn Matcha Ice Cream
No-churn matcha ice cream I love matcha ice cream, and this version gives me particular pleasure. Yes, it's ridiculously easy to make, which is gratifying, but more glorious - and important - is the perfect balance between the sophisticated bitterness of the matcha powder and the uncompromisingly childish sweetness of the condensed milk. You would never imagine such an uncouth ingredient could be a factor in the exquisite outcome here. I first made this during the photo shoot for this book, as a spontaneously on-the-spot recipe, simply because I had the matcha still out on the counter from the making of the Matcha Cake and I have to say it has emerged as one of my absolute favorite recipes. Should you ever be making the Molten Chocolate Babycakes from How To Be A Domestic Goddess, I urge you to serve this alongside.
