For an entertaining suggestion try peanut-butter (only the crunchy variety must be used) semi-freddo dessert. Serve with loads of your favourite hand-broken chocolate bits and candied banana slices. This can be taken to another level by adding a large ball of maple syrup ice cream. Do it - it will make your day!

Yields: 500ml

Ingredients :

500ml Milk

250ml Cream

250ml Maple Syrup

Pinch fine Salt

15ml Vanilla Extract

15ml Glucose

3 Egg Yolks

Method :

1) Bring the milk, cream, syrup, salt, vanilla and glucose to the boil

2) Whisk the egg yolks until light, pale in colour and fluffy

3) Add the warm milk mixture to the egg yolks slowly

4) Allow cooling overnight in the fridge

5) Churn and freeze the next day. If an ice cream machine isn't available place chilled mixture into freezer. Whisk every 30 minutes until frozen to allow for a light and fluffy ice cream
