One of the easiest (and delicious) cool treats to try this summer is this Baking Therapy no-fry fried ice cream that uses just 5 ingredients: corn flakes, cinnamon, brown butter, salt and your favourite ice cream, although I’m partial to this vanilla, chocolate, peanut butter swirl. It’s crunchy, creamy, sweet, salty all in one bite — and without all the mess of frying!
No-Fry Fried Ice Cream
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Rest Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
1 pint of ice cream
5 cups corn flakes, crushed
6 Tbsp butter, browned
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt
Caramel sauce for topping (optional)
1. Scoop 2-inch balls of ice cream onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Place into the freezer.
2. Place the corn flakes in a plastic bag and crush into small bits.
3. In large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Continue to cook and stir the butter for 8-10 minutes until the milk solids begin the turn a golden brown colour. Add in the crushed corn flakes, cinnamon and salt and continue to cook for another 5 minutes until the corn flakes are well coated and golden. Remove from heat and transfer to a cookie sheet to cool, about 10-15 minutes.
4. Roll the ice cream balls in the corn flakes, making sure to cover the entire surface. Serve immediately as-is or with a drizzle of caramel sauce.
