Method

  1. Separate the eggs. Beat the yolks and and vanilla extract with an electric whisk until light and foamy. Clean the whisk, then in another bowl whisk the egg whites, gradually adding the caster sugar until it is thick and glossy, a bit like making meringues.
  2. Lightly whip the double cream until it softly holds its shape. Mix with the yolks and egg white mixture until everything is combined. Turn into a container, cover and freeze until solid. Take out of the fridge about 10 mins before serving.

Yum. Added some roasted strawberries before I put it in the freezer. I served with the juice left over from the strawberries and some homemade shortbread.

Brilliant recipe and great ice-cream! Unbelievably easy I made it with my 2 small children. Makes very tasty ice-cream - which didn't last long in the freezer!

Easy and veryv tasty. I added some mashed raspberries I had in my freezer and it tasted great. Next time I'll add vanilla seeds instead of the extract, since I felt the vanilla extract taste a little over powering. Adding less extract may also be an idea if I don't have a vanilla pod handy. This recipe will also be a great base for adding other tastesvthan vanilla.
