    SOOOO GOOD!!! I didn't have cardamom, so I used half cinnamon and half nutmeg to replace it and it still turned out so delicious. Poured it into a dish and froze it and my friend and sat and devoured the entire thing with two spoons. I also used sweetened condensed milk, i assumed the recipe called for that. Added a bit extra cinnamon just cause I like lots of it, but this turns out like a smooth artesian ice cream!!!  -  20 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Good recipe - this is much more authentic than the other one on this site with bread in it. Also, I did not add the sugar - it was sweet enough with the condensed milk. I simmered for longer than recommended to make it richer. It was delicious.  -  06 May 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
