    • 150g white chocolate
    • Waffles

    • 2 eggs
    • 280g self-raising flour
    • 5ml (1 tsp) baking powder
    • 125ml (½ cup) sunflower oil
    • 250ml (1 cup) milk
    • 180ml (¾ cup) buttermilk

    • small handful fresh mint leaves, to garnish

    Instructions

    1

    For the ice cream, gently heat 500ml (2 cups) cream, the milk and ginger in a saucepan over high heat. Remove from heat just before it reaches boiling point.

    2

    Whisk the yolks and sugar together, then add the warm cream mixture. Whisk to combine, then pour back into the saucepan. Using a wooden spoon, stir over a low heat until it thickens and forms a smooth custard. The mixture should be able to lightly coat the back of the spoon. Stir in the vanilla seeds and ClemenGold zest and juice.

    3

    In a separate bowl, combine the chocolate and remaining 80ml cream and melt it in a double boiler, making sure the water in the pot does not touch the bottom of the double boiler. Whisk into the ice-cream mixture and allow to cool completely. Once cool, churn it in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions, then place in the freezer for at least 1 hour.

    4

    For the waffles, whisk all of the ingredients together until smooth. Heat the waffle iron and bake until the waffles are golden and crisp, 2 – 3 minutes. Serve the warm waffles with a generous scoop of ice cream on top and garnish with zest and mint leaves.

    Notes

    Make the most delicious ice-cream sandwiches by placing a scoop of the ClemenGold ice cream in between two crunchy choc-chip biscuits. The ClemenGold and chocolate combination is a match made in heaven.
