My favorite ice cream is homemade vanilla. IT is so good right out of the ice cream maker. We make homemade ice cream alot in the summer months and I do freeze some to keep for the winter so we have it year around. I don't buy the store bought kind. Here are some recipes you might like to try if you have a ice cream maker. Homemade Ice Cream Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe Here are two different kinds of recipe for Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream. The first is made with a custard base (eggs and cream) and the second is a 'quick' recipe ideal for kids! Custard base recipe Ingredients: 4 egg yolks, 1/2 pint (250ml) milk, 1/2 pint (250ml) double/heavy cream, 4 oz (100g) sugar or caster sugar, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (or according to taste - everyone's different!) First of all scald the milk (bring slowly up to boiling point in a saucepan). Separately, mix together the egg yolks and sugar until thick. Pour into this the hot milk, whilst continuously stirring. Then pour the mixture back into the pan and heat gently, stirring until the custard thickens - DO NOT BRING TO THE BOIL OR IT WILL PROBABLY CURDLE. When you can see a film form over the back of your spoon it's time to remove the saucepan from the heat. Leave to cool. This is the custard base and one you can use in many other recipes. When the custard base is cold, stir in the cream and vanilla extract, then transfer the whole mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. **** Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream recipe for kids (or anyone wanting something quick and delicious!)
