Creamy, homemade butterscotch ice cream recipe – No eggs & No ice cream machine required!
In light of all the unsettling things happening in this world these days, please let me talk about something pleasant, uplifting and downright delightful: ICE CREAMS! How wonderful are they? For most people, ice creams are the ultimate form of comfort food. Homemade ice creams are a thing of beauty, a labor of love. You can control exactly what goes into them. You can experiment with hundreds of flavors. And then there’s also the euphoria of having made something so beautiful from scratch.
Since nailing the basic ice cream recipe (which – by the way – have you tried yet? Cuz if not, I suggest you do so right away! It is a foolproof recipe!), I’ve been experimenting with a few different flavors. I made this butterscotch ice cream last year. With homemade pralines adding extra crunch to the ice cream, this comes very close to a store bought ice cream. In this recipe, I make the butterscotch from scratch. If you can’t be bothered with all the steps, there is a solution – butterscotch chips!
If you’re lucky enough to find butterscotch chips in your neighborhood, then you can simply melt them and use as a shortcut butterscotch flavor. In which case, you may want to follow this recipe. Instead of adding cocoa powder or chocolate, just add melted butterscotch chips to the milk mixture and you’re good to go!
But if you are looking for a detailed recipe for eggless butterscotch ice cream from scratch, then I got you covered here.
