I've made a couple of treats over the last week which are so simple and quick that I thought I would share them with. These treats I call my speedy specials and are ideal for making something that will still impress your family and friends even if you have no time for a full on baking masterpiece or you think that you can't cook (or won't cook!).
First comes this deliciously smooth and creamy Vietnamese coffee ice cream. A traditional recipe to the region, it's speedy in the sense that it takes 10 Min's top to prepare. You can then ether serve it straight away as a beautifully sweet cream or if you prepare it in the morning and freeze, it will be ready to serve as an ice cream come dinner time the same evening. All you need is the following:

Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream

600ml Double Cream
397g Condensed Milk
2 Tbsp Coffee (Dissolved In 50ml Cold Water)
2 Tsp Vanilla Extract

Simply add all your ingredients into a bowl and whisk away until the mixture can form soft peaks. You want the ice cream to be light and fluffy so don't over whisk as it will be too thick and heavy. Serve immediately or pop in the freezer and after 12 hours you will a more ice cream like consistency.

It doesn't get much easier than that!
