  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Mascarpone at room temperature
  • 1 tsp (instant espresso powder or granules)
  • 1/4 cup (one shot) espresso coffee
  • 1/2 tsp Kahlua or coffee liqueur of your choice


  1. In a saucepan, combine milk and cream and turn on the heat to medium-low. Heat milk until it is simmering.
  2. In a deep bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar, until pale and frothy. Add mascarpone cheese and mix until combined. (Use a wooden spoon or spatula, don't beat mascarpone with electric mixer).
  3. Add 1/2 cup hot milk to the egg yolk - mascarpone mixture and whisk to combine. Pour mixture back in the pan with hot milk and mix to combine. Cook for 5-8 minutes on medium heat, stirring constantly, until custard it thick and covers the back of the spoon with a thin film.
  4. Pour mixture to a bowl and let is cool completely. Use an ice bath to speed up the process, or you can leave it in the fridge over night.
  5. Before you add mixture to your ice cream machine, add vanilla, coffee powder, espresso and coffee liqueur to it.
  6. Following the manufacturer's instructions for your ice cream maker, freeze until it resembles soft serve ice cream. Transfer to a 9"x13" pan, lined with parchment paper, cover and freeze until firm.
  7. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

This recipe makes a little under 1 quart of ice cream.
I used a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker with capacity 1 -1 1/2 quarts.
Since this is a custard based ice cream with Mascarpone cheese in it, the texture might change a little, after the initial freeze, because the texture of Mascarpone changes.
