How to make French Vanilla Ice Cream - www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

I discovered this recipe in the instruction manual for the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker. Whilst the ice cream maker itself may soon be history, I did manage to make a note of the recipes before we returned it!

This recipe is delicious and definitely rivals any good quality, commercially made vanilla ice cream. You might want to check the quantities but otherwise, I feel sure you can use exactly the same ingredients whichever method you use for turning your batter into ice cream.

  • 600ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 230g sugar
  • 600ml whipping cream
  • 4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Yield: 16 x 120ml servings

Making the ice cream batter

  • In a medium saucepan, over a medium heat, heat the milk until very hot but not boiling, stirring often. (Alternatively, heat the milk in the microwave. 5 minutes was perfect for me, but you might want to reduce the cooking time until you know how long it takes in your microwave. Just make sure you keep an eye on it, so it doesn't boil.)
  • Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • Whisk the eggs and sugar until well blended and slightly thickened - if using a KitchenAid, set to speed 2.
  • Continue to whisk and gradually add the warmed milk until blended.
  • Return the mix to the saucepan and, stirring constantly, cook over a medium heat until small bubbles form around the edge and the mixture is steamy. Do not boil.
  • Transfer the batter mix into a large bowl, stir in the whipping cream, vanilla extract and salt.
  • Cover and chill for at least 8 hours.

Turning your batter into ice cream

  • Once chilled, use your preferred method for making the ice cream.
  • If using a KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker, you will have already frozen your freeze bowl for at least 15 hours.
  • Assemble the freeze bowl, drive assembly and dasher per your ice cream maker's instructions.
  • Turn your KitchenAid onto STIR or speed 1.
  • Slowly pour your ice cream batter into your freeze bowl and continue to stir for 15-20 minutes or until you have your desired consistency.
  • Serve immediately, or transfer your ice cream into an airtight container for freezing.
