No churn rum and raisin ice cream

29 Dec

rum raisin chocolate ice cream

I love an easy, no churn ice cream recipe! Even if you are living in a part of the world currently covered in snow and frost, I promise you that your guests would be thrilled to be served a bowl of home made chocolate, rum and raising ice cream. 

I tweaked this recipe from Green and Black’s Organic Ultimate Chocolate Recipes – The New Collection (mouthful!) cook book.

The Hungry Dad, who is partial to icecream, rum and chocolate, absolutely raved about this recipe. It is so easy to make.

Purists would call this a semifreddo but all I know is that it is delicious, it requires no icecream machine and you can impress the hell out of people when you tell them you made this ice cream from scratch.

I think the rum and raising combo is quite festive, and I reckon this dessert would be perfect for new year’s eve.

Start this the day before or if time is short, place raisins and rum in a small saucepan and heat over a low heat until rum is absorbed.


75 grams raisins

2 tablespoons spiced rum

225 grams dark chocolate, broken into chunks

2 eggs PLUS 2 egg yolks

100 grams caster sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

350 mL double cream, whipped to soft peaks

Tip raisins and rum into a small bowl and allow to sit overnight.

The next day, melt the chocolate using double broiler or microwave and set aside for at least 15 minutes.

Line a 900 grams loaf tin with cling film, ensuring a 5cm overlap on each side.

In bowl of electric mixer beat eggs, yolk and sugar until pale and light, then fold in the melted chocolate, vanilla, raisins and any extra rum and beat until just mixed.

Pour into the tin and gently tap to get rid of air bubbles. Fold the excess cling film over the top and freeze until frozen.

To serve scoop into bowls, or slice in thick wedges.

    I do not have an ice cream maker so this recipe is perfect! And rum raisin is my mom’s favorite 🙂

      I couldn’t even tell you where my ice cream maker is, hence my love of no churn ice cream 😉

    Rum and Raisin is by far one of my favourite flavours!

    Oh I need to bookmark, pin and Yum this! Rum and raisin ice-cream is my favourite flavour… which is really weird because I don’t like rum! I can’t wait to make this 🙂
    Have a Happy New Years

    Love this! When I was little my father worked for an ice cream company and he would bring home litres of ice cream for us to have for dessert. One of the flavours was rum and raisin – you don’t see that in supermarkets these days but back then it was very popular. I’ve never made my own but you inspired me xx

    This sounds so very good and, like Charlie, it’s been ages since I’ve seen rum and raisin ice cream. I’m going to pin your recipe. Looks like the drought is about to end. 🙂

    No churn for the WIN! And the rum is warming right? So even more reason to serve in the middle of winter. 🙂

    Rum Raisin Ice Cream always makes me think of my grandmother, it was her favourite 🙂 I’ve never heard of adding chocolate to it. Sounds yum!

      ooooh, love that your grandmother loved this flavour – how very sophisticated. This icecream is really lush and the choc makes it even better.
