Most of the recipes I have found online require an ice cream maker, but one is really not needed. All you need to do once you have the mix in the freezer is remove it every so often and whisk with a fork to prevent the formation of ice crystals. Making ice cream is actually a very simple process.
I’ll be posting some more of the recipes I have used when making ice cream, but will start off with a simple vanilla one (which my neice described as better than shop bought).
- 250ml Double Cream
- 145ml Milk
- 100g Caster Sugar
- 2 tablespoons good quality vanilla extract
Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk together (I’d recommend an electric whisk if you have one).
Pour into an airtight 1 litre container and place in the coldest part of the freezer.
Remove from the freezer every 30 to 40 minutes and whisk with a fork; this prevents ice crystals forming in the ice cream.
