The best oranges filled with ice cream – orange, of course – and the limes filled with lime ice cream. I tasted them in Menorca in the Spanish Mediterranean. It's creamy, delicious flavor has turned me into a fan and every time I visited Mallorca, I would search for these unique and delicious treats. I've always tried to reproduce the taste and texture of these ice creams and though they haven't turned out quite the same, I'm very happy with the different recipes for orange ice cream that I’ve created at home. This isn't a traditional recipe for ice cream; it's really an adapted version of Gran Marnier soufflé glacé. This soufflé glacé has been one of my favorite recipes for many years. It's elegant, delicious, and if you freeze it in ramekins lined with parchment paper, they end up rising like soufflés. You can serve it with chocolate sauce. The combination is sensational and I really recommend it. You don't need an ice cream machine, but be sure to whip the egg yolks while double boiling so they become thick, as indicated in the instructions. If you want to use orange liqueurs, just remember that alcohol slows down the freezing time and it can take a little longer to achieve the texture you want. It will take less time without the liqueur. If you want to fill your orange with the ice cream and have them ready to serve. In this case, be sure to move them to the fridge 15 minutes before serving so the ice cream instead of super firm.
