She is a magnificent food stylist - her photos do make you (well, me) want to lick the page - but puts emphasis on taste and (my favourite part) making things as easy as possible. Plenty of her recipes are complicated, multi-step affairs - but never more so than necessary - and they're interspersed with quicker, simpler ideas. In the most recent issue she has some quick ice-cream recipe (which technically aren't super quick as they still need to freeze) and though it's pretty hard to replicate the texture of true ice-cream without making a custard, sometimes something a little different is good.
This particular recipe is about as simple as they come - two ingredients (surely you couldn't have a recipe without at least two ingredients!), and it doesn't even require an ice-cream maker. It took me all of five minutes to put together, and the only potential screw-up I can imagine is possible would be if you beat the cream for a bit too long and made butter instead. And if you're really worried about that you could buy thickened cream (which is actually what the recipe in the mag called for).
So, quite possibly the easiest recipe ever - and definitely has ultimate lickability in terms of flavour - do you know of any recipes which beat this for delicious simplicity?
Easy Caramel Ice-Cream (from Donna Hay Magazine)
395g tin caramel (found next to sweetened condensed milk in the supermarket)
Whip the cream until firm but still smooth. Mix in the caramel until well combined. Transfer into a 1 litre container and freeze overnight or until firm.
