  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 300ml pot double cream

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.

Delicious, creamy and easy to make without the need for an ice-cream maker. Lovely as it is but also nice with fruit coulis swirled through or lemon curd swirled in with crushed meringue. Yum!

Easy to make. Tastes delicious and is super creamy. We added smashed Maltesers, yummy! Will definitely make again and again.

This is delicious but I can't give it a five star rating as it involves an awful lot of washing up. I made it by doing things in a different order to deal with this and it is now five star.

Arwen's comment worried me as I've been back to eating soft/almost raw eggs for years! I was relieved to read that a report from the Advisory Committee on the Microbiological Safety of Food (ACMSF), in 2016, said that salmonella has dramatically reduced in British eggs and the FSA (Food safety agency) has advised that pregnant women can now eat raw eggs that have the British Lion red stamp. So it is ok to make ice cream with safely produced raw eggs these days!

Superb flavour! Very rich, but this is a good thing as you don't need a lot of it. Once you make this ice cream you will find yourself hard pressed to buy supermarket variants ever again!

I'm pretty sure it is inadvisable to use raw eggs as you'd be at risk of Salmonella infection?

Delicious, easy, fantastic recipe. Tastes just like the little pots of ice cream you used to buy during the intervals at the cinema.....those were the days :)

Agree with saschlet this is so easy that now I too have an ice cream maker to spare! Have made many times. Have just been using left over freezer fruit - black currant swirl - cook the fruit and pass through a sieve. Freeze the ice cream 1-1 1/2 hours, then swirl the fruit through. I defy you not to lick the spoon afterwards ;))

I am astounded at how good this recipe turned out: I tried a second time with some new banana essence from Lakeland (about 1/2 a tsp), elmlea light double, 100g xylitol and 40g golden caster sugar and it has frozen to the same consistency as soft scoop ice cream. It is divine. Can't wait to try with raspberry essence! I didn't bother with the ice cream machine which I think I can now freecycle!

How long does this last in the freezer?

This is delicious but there is something which could improve it. Doing it like this makes a lot of washing up! Whip the ingredients in a different order to make for less.
