My, oh my, oh my! This is so deliciously smooth and creamy - both the texture and the taste was superb. When my hubby took his first spoon of this ice-cream, he went into ecstasy! No one could tell this was home-made.
As some of the other reviews mentioned that the chocolate taste was not "chocolatey" enough, I put in 1/3 cup more of the cocoa powder (total 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp).
I did make a few other minor changes, though not sure if any of them made any difference. I just had a similar custard style Japanese green tea ice-cream recipe that turned out fabulous and I replicated some of the preparation methods.
Instead of putting the sugar into the milk/cocoa mixture to simmer, I whisked the egg yolks and sugar separately until light and fluffy, before stirring in the hot milk/cocoa mixture as per recipe. I used cooking chocolate (only thing I had on hand), which I grated. Oh, imagine if I had really good quality chocolate - could anything be even better than what I had??! Must try it one day....
I also whisked the cream until it formed soft peaks before folding in the chocolate mixture.
I don't know how long it took to freeze, but it did freeze beautifully. No graininess, no flakes, easy to scoop right out of the freezer, wonderfully chocolatey taste and such a delight on the palate :-)
