Dulce de Leche ice-cream
Dulce de leche involves the process of slowly cooking milk that results in a unique caramel colour and a rich, nutty taste. And this ice-cream is scrumptious.

1 tbsp caster sugar

1 tbsp dextrose

5g ice-cream stabiliser (optional)*

500ml milk

350g dulce de leche

Combine the sugar, dextrose and stabiliser, if using.

Heat the milk in a saucepan to just below boiling and add the dry ingredients in a steady stream, whisking to prevent lumps forming.

Put the dulce de leche in a heatproof bowl, pour over the hot milk mixture and mix with a hand blender until well combined.

Transfer to a container. Cover the surface with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3–6 hours.

Churn in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Serve immediately or store in the freezer.
