Just a comment really, because I've never tried this recipe. I thought people might be wondering why this is called "brown bread ice cream" when there is no brown bread in it. Well, brown bread ice cream is an old British treat and certainly did not contain Grape Nuts! You literally made your own toffee-flavored chunks by combining brown bread crumbs with sugar and caramelizing them in the oven. Then blend with traditional vanilla base ice cream ingredients for a unique frozen dessert.

That this ice cream is tasty is no debate -- it's really sweet and decadent, but because of the cream and condensed milk, it doesn't harden up very well. Condense milk, when it freezes, becomes more like a hard caramel. Interesting, but maybe next time, I will use less to see what happens. It's very good, but just melts too fast, becoming a kind of sweet soup with bits of cereal mixed it. I have a terrible sweet tooth, so I will eat anything with enough sugar in it, but my party guests were wincing at the sweetness.

Grandpa B's recipe is the best! We like to use pasturized egg product instead of raw eggs.

I have tried every flavor of ice cream over the years but nothing excited my tastebuds like this. A truly wonderful find. I shared this recipe with my family along with a dish of ice cream. I should have kept this one a secret.

This unusual recipe was a huge hit with my cooking club. We vow to make this one AT LEAST once a month. Thanks so much for sharing!!

This is incredibly rich... but delicious!! it never looked like more than slushy consistency though. I eventually added the grape nuts anyway and let it rotate another 10-15 minutes and transfered it to an airtight container and put it in the fridge... left it over night and it was perfect ice cream the next day!

This was simple and fun to make. we loved it. the kid's complained a little about the cereal, but they ate it well. Hard to do a bad ice cream. Different and good.
