Listen to the podcast episode to get the story behind the flavour.


  • 100g brown sugar
  • 50g white sugar
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 500ml milk
  • 500ml cream
  • 10g lebkuchen spice
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • 60g okoshi
  • Zest 1 orange


  • Quantity: 12 scoops
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Chill Time: 8 hours minimum
  • Churn Time: 40 mins (machine dependent)


Add the brown sugar and milk together in a pan and slowly heat until the sugar has dissolved. DO NOT LET IT BOIL!

Whisk the egg yolks together with the white sugar.

Temper the egg yolks by slowly pouring the hot milk mixture over the them. Pour very slowly and continually whisk.

Put the mix back in the pan and add the lebkuchen spice.

Ensure that it doesn’t boil and that the eggs don’t start to cook. A good way to test if it’s ready is to use a wooden spoon. If the mix coats the back of the spoon without running then it’s good to go. Think of the consistency of custard.

In a bowl, combine the creamorange zest and almond extract.

Once you’ve reached custard, strain it over the cream and leave in the fridge to chill for 8 hours minimum, ideally overnight.
