Brown Bread Ice Cream

 So I'm hoping that some of you made the brown bread recipe that I posted last week.  I hope you enjoyed it - but I also hope you have a bit of it left over so you can make this brown bread ice cream recipe !! I know some of you are saying "Whhhh-aaa-ttt???" and others of you are screaming "Yeeessss !!" especially if you've ever had the privilege of having Murphy's brown bread ice cream in Dublin.  You can visit their website here:  The first time I heard about this flavor of ice cream, I was among the crowd shouting "Whhh-aaa-ttt???, that's the strangest thing I've ever heard of".  But then I tried it and fell head over heals in love.  So, then I get home and decide that I need to make some because I can't wait until I get back to Ireland to enjoy it.  Ice cream making is fairly simple but takes some time, so I decided to find the most natural ice cream I could at the store and use it.  I know I should take the time to make my own, but the ingredients in the all natural ice cream are the same ones I'd use at home and it saves me loads of time !!  So here is my quick version of brown bread ice cream, used by modifying the Murphy family recipe that I found on their website.  Please give it a try, it might just become your new favorite ice cream !!

Brown Bread Crumbs drying

Quick Brown Bread Ice Cream

2 cups brown bread crumbs, dried (you need about 4-5 slices of bread)
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons water
1.75 - 2 qt All Natural Vanilla Ice Cream

Brown Bread, brown sugar and water mixture

Remove the crust and crumble the bread into pieces.  Let air dry overnight or until the crumbs are fairly dry.  Melt brown sugar and water until the sugar crystals are dissolved.  Stir in the crumbs until well coated and let cool.  Soften a container of ice cream and pour into a large bowl.  Stir the crumbs into the ice cream and return the mixture to its original container.  Refreeze until hard and serve.
