Kenji serves this with azuki monaka, a light wafer cake filled with sweetened red bean paste. You will need 8 x 125ml dariole moulds. Freeze leftover sorbet for up to 3 months.
Ingredients220g (1 cup) caster sugar
2 egg yolks
500ml (2 cups) milk
60ml (¼ cup) pouring cream
½ vanilla bean, seeds scraped
Nigori sake sorbet
220g (1 cup) caster sugar
2 lemons, juiced
250ml (1 cup) nigori sake*
PreparationTo make sorbet, place sugar and 250ml water in a saucepan over medium heat and stir until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to high, add lemon juice and bring to the boil. Remove from heat, stir in sake and allow to cool. Churn in an ice-cream maker until frozen. (Alternatively, pour into a shallow metal tray and freeze for 2 hours or until frozen at the edges. Scrape with a fork to break up ice crystals, then freeze for a further 2 hours. Repeat process twice or until completely frozen and smooth.)
Grease 8 x 125ml dariole moulds. Place 110g sugar and 1 tbsp hot water in a small saucepan over medium heat and stir until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to high and boil for 12 minutes or until a dark golden caramel. Divide among moulds and set aside.
Whisk eggs, yolks and remaining 110g sugar in a bowl until combined. Place milk, cream and vanilla bean and seeds in a saucepan and bring to the boil over medium heat. Strain through a fine sieve. Pour among moulds. Place in a large steamer and set over a pan of simmering water. Steam for 40 minutes or until a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until cold. Turn out and serve with sorbet.
* Nigori sake is a ‘raw’ sake that is cloudy due to the loosely woven cloth that it is filtered through. Substitute other drinking sake.
