Mum’s the word

I found out yesterday that my mum has a blog. My wife told me. Why had I not been informed?

It’s a bit of a Campbell family recipe book. You should check it out.

The icecream was delicious…

4 eggs
3/4 cup icing sugar – sifted
300mls cream

Whisk the egg yolks in a bowl until well blended.
In another larger bowl whisk the egg whites until stiff then whisk in the icing sugar a spoon at a time.
In a third bowl whisk the cream until it forms soft peaks, then fold into meringue mixture with egg yolks.
Turn into a 1500ml container, cover and freeze.

Vanilla – add 1 tsp vanilla essence to cream
Coffee – add 2 Tsp strong coffee and 1 Tsp rum or brandy to mixture before freezing
Chocolate – mix 2 Tsp cocoa with 4 Tsp cold milk, warm until blended then combine with 60gm melted chocolate and fold into mix before freezing
Dried Fig and Ginger – Chop one cup of dried figs – cover with strong black chai tea til soft combine with 1/2 cup diced ginger and 1/2 tsp cardammon then blend into ice cream mix and freeze”

If you go there and comment – be nice or you’re in big trouble.
