Rum & Raisin ice-cream

With a bottle of rum essence due to expire, leftover whipping cream and raisins, I just couldn't bear to dump it. While searching for the right rum & raisin recipes, I recalled Happy Mrs Kwok's homemade ice-cream.

Thanks Mrs Happy Kwok for sharing your recipe and answering my queries on homemade ice-cream, I really made my own ice-cream! I never ever thought it would be so easy, and you don't need an ice-cream maker at all, that's true. Isn't that good news? I'm still wondering what is the purpose of an ice-cream maker, probably that would churn out creamier, smoother ice-cream?

The texture is good, but the rum flavour is a little artificial. I don't think I would ever buy rum flavour for baking again cos' I just don't like the taste and 'aroma' (mayb I don't know how to appreciate it :). If I'm making it again, I'll definitely try vanilla with chocolate chips or nuts, or green tea. :P

Aimei,

How do you make it without an ice-cream maker? All the recipes that I have seen involves putting everything in a ice-cream maker as a final step.

Thanks!

Hi SKinnymum,

I do not know why ice-cream maker is not needed either. I made it at night, then chill it in the fridge overnight. The next day, it became harder, but still a little soft. I stirred and mixed it well again before freezing it at the freezer. When I returned home from work, the ice-cream is done! :)

I almost give up when I found an ice cream maker is required. The good thing is I found a few recipes that ice cream maker is not needed. I bought pandan, strawberry and rose flavoring yesterday, can't wait to give a try soon
