Frozen Ingrid in an ‘Alice Porter Snap’ with Alice Porter Caviar

This is my entry to the Brew Dog #BrewBake contest and it tastes amazing even if I do say so myself!


Frozen Ingrid

Only makes a small amount of Ice Cream, can easily be doubled

  • 250ml Milk
  • 250ml Double Cream
  • 2 Eggs
  • 65g Caster Sugar
  • 80ml Hello My Name Is Ingrid


  1. Combine Milk and half the cream in a saucepan and scold.
  2. At the same time mix the egg yokes and sugar until pale and creamy.
  3. Once milk is heated, pour onto egg mixture and mix.
  4. Pour back into saucepan and heat on low heat until thick. Do not boil!
  5. Leave to cool.
  6. Once cool, add the rest of the double cream and beer to taste.
  7. Pour into ice-cream maker if you have one, otherwise just into a tub and stir every hour or so.

This makes a surprisingly tasty ice-cream, possibly my favorite!

‘Alice Porter Snaps’

  • 50g Butter
  • 50g Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 50g Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 25ml Alice Porter


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C
  2. Melt butter, sugar and golden syrup and cool a little.
  3. Add everything else and mix.
  4. Pour onto lined baking tray in little blobs.
  5. Don’t put the too close the really do spread!
  6. Cook in oven until golden brown all over. Probably longer that you think!
  7. Leave to cool for a couple of minutes and shape as desired.

I think with a bit of tweaking more beer could be used to make the flavour stand out more. Maybe loose the ginger too.

‘Alice Porter Caviar’:

  • 1g Sodium Alginate
  • 1.5g Sodium Lactate
  • 100ml Low Calcium Water
  • 50ml Alice Porter


  1. Prepare setting bath: Dissolve Sodium lactate in 50mm of the water. Stir to dissolve entirely.
  2. Add the sodium lactate to the other 50ml water and mix with a blender.
  3. Add 50ml of Alice Porter to the sodium lactate solution and stir well.
  4. Pipette drops of the Alice Porter solution into the setting bath and leave to firm for about a minute.
  5. Use a slotted spoon to remove the pearls and rince them in fresh tap water.
  6. Use immediately.

Quite fun as they burst in the mouth and you get a hit of Alice Porter :)
