Alternatively, you can put the raisins in a good rum. This is also the most widespread variant for ice cream parlours.

Due to the yolk, the ice cream remains quite soft even in your home freezer. Before serving, you can still put it in the fridge for about 10 minutes to allow the flavour to develop better while eating.

Worth knowing and tips

  • Due to the rum or wine content, which should not be underestimated, Malaga ice cream should be enjoyed with caution by children and pregnant women. Alternatively, the Raisins also in apple juice soaked in water. Do not add the apple juice to the ice cream, this would influence the taste too much.
  • If you want to achieve the taste of rum without alcohol, you can Rum flavor should be used diluted in water. But I have to admit that I have not tried this variant myself.
  • If, as you can see in the picture, you want to make a small ice-cream cake together, then just make a Sponge cake and bakes this in Muffin tins. I divided the dough and dyed it with food coloring. If you layer the whole thing, you can get funny effects.
