Making traditional butterscotch ice cream requires making butter scotch sauce. What could be done if making this sauce is not feasible to you, then you can use store bought butterscotch essence just like I have did here. As we are using essence and chips here, this is an easy no cook butterscotch ice cream.
The ice cream also has some crushed praline added to it. Praline is also a confectionery made with sugar. It is used as topping in desserts especially ice creams. The specialty of butterscotch ice cream is this praline.
While making praline at home is very easy yet it does need some time for it to set. So if you are in a hurry it is better to use butterscotch chips readily available. I have made praline at home for cakes and ice creams but this time I used butterscotch chips. However I have added brief instructions for making praline at home.
Quick Praline For Butterscotch Ice Cream.
- First of all grease a parchment sheet with some butter and set aside.
- Now add 3/4 cup sugar to a thick pan and start heating.
- Do not stir the sugar yet.
- Just keep swirling the pan and continue to cook. once the sugar begins to melt continue to cook in lowest flame.
- Once the sugar is completely melted and turns into light amber color add 1 tablespoon butter and remove from flame. Mix the butter throughout.
- Add 1/4 cup chopped nuts and mix well. Transfer to the greased sheet and let it set. Once set the praline slides of easily. Break and use as required. To add praline in butterscotch ice cream recipe just crush about 1 cup praline and use instead of chips.
Making homemade butterscotch ice cream with this recipe is really easy. It is a no cook and no churn ice cream also. Just mix in the flavors, whip the cream, fold and set 🙂 Look for Indian butterscotch essence in stores.
As I mentioned above Indian butterscotch is just a confectionery with sugar and butter. This essence has a unique flavor and it is different from the ones you get in other parts of the world.
Is food color absolutely needed for this recipe?
In parlors and shops you will find butterscotch ice cream in bright yellow color. Yellow food coloring is usually added. However while making at home I just add a pinch of turmeric powder. You can also add few saffron strands for color and flavor.
What if I don't have whipping cream or heavy cream?
You can absolutely make this ice cream with just low fat or medium fat cream. I have used amul whipping cream with 35% fat content here. If you are using low fat cream refer this post on details for whipping it.
