Rich Vanilla Ice-Cream

A rich vanilla ice-cream recipe with an egg-based custard. Ice creams made with an electric ice cream maker are prepared somewhat differently, and the manufacturer's directions should be followed.

ingredients

serves 12
2 cups (500 ml) milk
3 eggs
1 cup (200 g) caster sugar (superfine granulated)
scant 1/2 (us) cup (100 ml) double cream (heavy cream)
2 tsp vanilla essence

method

1. Heat the milk until almost boiling.

2. Beat the eggs and 100 g of the sugar together and add the hot milk, stirring well.

3. Return the mixture to the pan and cook, without boiling, until the custard coats the back of a wooden spoon.

4. Stir all the time. Strain, cover and leave to go cold.

5. When cold, whip the cream until semi-stiff.

6. Add the cold custard, vanilla essence, and the rest of the sugar.

7. Turn into a suitable container.

8. Chill until thoroughly cold, cover closely and half freeze

9. Beat the mixture well. Re-freeze until firm; label and store.
