Recipe for buttered croissant gelato with raspberry jam

For the raspberry jam: 

  • 70g of fresh raspberries
  • 100g caster sugar

For the gelato:

  • 80g caster sugar
  • 120g dextrose
  • 587g Fleurieu unhomogeneous milk
  • 80g croissant (dried out and toasted)
  • 75g butter
  • 47.5g skim milk powder
  • 15g water
  • 3g Tara gum*
  • .5g Guar gum*

*can be bought from good health food stores

For the jam:

  • Cook raspberries and sugar on stove in a heavy bottomed pot over a low/medium heat gently for 10 minutes until jam like consistency. Leave in the fridge to stay cold.

For the gelato:

  • Mix all ingredients except dextrose and gum powders. Blend with stick blender until all incorporated. 
  • Then blend dextrose and gum powders in until incorporated. (Because the mixture is cold at this stage, the mix may look odd but don’t worry)
  • Heat mixture gently up to 85c to pasteurise all ingredients then allow to cool before putting into your ice cream maker.
  • If you have any excess croissant, chop them up roughly and dry out in the oven.
  • Once crossiant has cooled and the gelato has completed its churn, add and mix the croissant and jam to your gelato. This will add a lovely crunch and jam swirl.
  • Chill as long as needed and then enjoy.
