Turon Ice Cream

DIFFICULTY: Easy

Makes 4 servings
Preparation time: 1 hour


Ingredients:

Cups:
16 pieces molo wrapper
1 tablespoon melted butter
2 tablespoons white sugar

Ice Cream:
4 pieces ripe banana, frozen overnight
3 pieces calamansi, juiced

Langka Coulis:
½ cup langka syrup
½ cup langka, chopped

Caramel:
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup water

Procedure:

Cups
1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
2. Using a muffin mold, place about 2 to 4 molo wrappers in each opening to make a cup. Brush each layer with the melted butter and sprinkle with the white sugar. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes or until the turon cups are brown. Set aside.

Ice Cream
1. Remove the peels from the frozen bananas and drizzle with calamansi juice. Blend in a food processor or blender just until a creamy texture is achieved. Scoop it out and store in the freezer.

Langka Coulis
1. Heat the langka syrup and langka pieces in a non-stick pan over medium.
Transfer to a blender and blend until fine.

Caramel
1. In a sauce pot over medium heat, add the water and sugar to make caramel. Stir just until the sugar dissolves. Let it simmer. Swirl the pan once in awhile. Allow it to boil until thick. Be careful not to over boil and burn the sugar. Keep warm.

Assembly
1. On a plate, spread the langka coulis and place the cups in the center. Scoop out the ice cream on the cups and drizzle with caramel. Optional: Create hard caramel by drizzling the mixture on parchment paper or on the back of an oiled cup. Slowly remove and add to the ice cream.
