Method

  1. Put the milk in a pan with the cinnamon stick and bring to the boil. In a bowl, whisk together the yolks, sugar and ground cinnamon. Discard the cinnamon stick, then strain the hot milk over the yolks, whisking continuously.
  2. Pour the custard mix back into a pan and cook on a low-ish heat for 8-10 mins, stirring constantly until thickened. Whisk the custard into the cream, then cool, chill and freeze in an ice-cream maker.

Delicious. It's well worth grinding your own cinnamon!

I made this last year for Christmas dessert, it was served alongside a pear and almond tart (I poached the pears in mulled wine to add to the christmas vibe) and it was gorgeous. Will be making it again this year

Sooooo good! I love it! I also use this recipe (without the cinnamon as a good basic ice cream recipe).

Loved it. Served with a lemon tart - the flavours worked really well. Next up, will serve with apple flan...

I made this last night.I thought it was delicious, however, the wife :( decided to smother hers in ice magic to hide the cinnamon taste - the ungrateful cow! Its Mr Whippy for her next time!

I love cinnamon yet this really did not work for me. It tasted like a frozen cake, maybe cinnamon ice cream is not such a great idea after all

Made this using the non-ice-cream maker method, whilst it tastes nice it has set like a brick. I will have to thaw it slightly before eating.

Made this for a recent dinner party - a roaring success. Stunning.

A dessert that punches well above it's weight. We served it with Gordon's Pear Tarte Tatin with amazing results.
