Some branded it ‘tempting’ and ‘indulgent’ while others were left baffled at the recipe.

In typical extravagant style, the domestic goddess shared a photo of the pictures, with the caption: ‘Midweek Treat: #RecipeOfTheDay is my One-Step No-Churn Coffee Ice Cream. 

‘You could mix it up now (it’s not yet 9am) and eat it this evening! One of my absolute favourite ice creams, especially in brioche buns!

The recipe, which she shared online, includes whisking together double cream, condensed milk,  instant espresso powder and espresso liqueur until stiff peaks form and then freezing it over night and then serving in a brioche bun. 

‘I’m almost embarrassed at how easy this is but, as you will find out, simple though it is to make, its flavour is deep, complex and utterly compelling,’ she wrote online.

‘You could (and I often do) serve it with a chocolate sauce but my absolute favourite way of eating this is by squidging it into little brioches, like sweet burger buns, as they do in the south of Italy,’ she added.

Many fans thought the recipe was genius, with comedian Dawn French writing: ‘ Ice cream IN A BUN?! Oh Nigella… thank you’.

Another fan wrote ‘tempting’ while a third added, ‘amazing!’.

Other observed the recipe was ‘very Sicilian’ while some even suggested adding chocolate chunks to the recipe or serving it in a hot cross bun. 

However, some fans were questioning the combination, with one commenting: ‘Ice cream??? In a bun???’

It comes after Nigella revealed she has ditched the word ‘s**t’ from her recipes after saying it had developed a ‘coarser’ and ‘more cruel’ meaning in recent years.

The food writer posted her recipe of the day – Ruby Red Raspberries in Chardonnay Jelly – to her Twitter account last month,  with dozens of fans saying it was one of their favourites.

But the eagle-eyed among them noted that when the recipe first appeared in one of her books – 2002’s Forever Summer – it was called S**t Red Raspberries in Chardonnay Jelly. 

One fan questioned why she dropped the term, saying: ‘Wonderful recipe (as always!) but it makes me wonder what has happened to this country when we can’t even call that recipe by its hilarious original name. What has happened to our free speech, humour and a sense fun? I love your turn of phrase Nigella!     

Nigella replied: ‘I feel that the word has taken on a coarser, more cruel connotation, and I’m not happy with that.’
