  • For leche merengada, stir milk, cream, brandy, lemon rind, cinnamon and 100gm caster sugar in a saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves, then cool completely. Whisk eggwhites to soft peaks in an electric mixer, then whisk in remaining sugar until stiff peaks form (2-3 minutes). Fold through cream mixture, freeze in an ice-cream machine, then freeze until required. Makes about 500ml.
