Turkish Delight Ice-Cream Cones Recipe

Makes 1 litre


12 egg yolks

½ cup caster sugar

2 cups pouring cream

2 cups milk

300g Turkish delight, cut into 1cm cubes

1 vanilla bean, split and scraped

waffle cones, to serve

pistachios, slivered, to serve


Place egg yolks and caster sugar in a heatproof bowl and whisk for 3-4 minutes, or until pale and fluffy. Place cream, milk, ½ Turkish delight, and vanilla in a saucepan over high heat, stirring until Turkish delight dissolves. Bring just to the boil; pour into egg-yolk mixture, whisking until combined.

Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water; stir continuously for 6-8 minutes, or until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Strain mixture into another bowl; refrigerate until cool. Stir in remaining Turkish delight and place in the bowl of an ice-cream maker. Freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Serve in waffle cones and sprinkle pistachios on top.
