Rye bread ice cream


Café Loki in Reykjavik was the place where I tried that sheep’s head jelly. To was down the flavors I ordered dessert in the form of their ‘famous’ rye bread ice cream. Rye bread is a classic in all the Scandinavian countries, and no less so in Iceland. They even bake some in the hot springs and thermal pool. It can be quite sweet, depending on the bread, which is why it didn’t sound that crazy to me to turn it into a dessert.

When I ordered it I assumed the bread would have been soaking in the custard base leaving behind the taste of rye. However, it wasn’t removed from the custard but rather crumbled through. The ice cream itself was quite smooth and tasted of caramel. The rye bread added texture, but didn’t actually impart much flavor, whether or not that’s a good thing, I have yet to make up my mind about.
