This week’s Sweet Melissa Sundays selection is Guinness Gingerbread. I made a half recipe and baked it in an 8×8-inch pan. The recipe also said to simmer the Guiness in a saucepan. I didn’t do it because I didn’t want to dirty another pan. I don’t know if it affected the outcome.The gingerbread tasted great. Not as good as the Fresh Ginger & Chocolate Gingerbread I made in January, but it was good.
I decided to make Guinness-Milk Chocolate Ice Cream from The Perfect Scoop this week. In high school, I had to read John Steinbeck’s Cannery Row. One thing I always remember from the book is beer milkshakes. We giggled over that in class. Anyway, this ice cream makes me think of beer milkshakes and Cannery Row.You can find the recipe for the ice cream HERE.
