Apparently, it goes icy, Ellie, if you don't mix it enough. I tried it by hand, though, and it turned out icy too! It virtually froze over, and i was mixing the whole time!

Far too rich and sickly for our family I'm afraid.

The real trick with this recipe is to use a good quality fresh custard. Whatever you do dont use tinned stuff like ambrosia because it has a really strong flavour and your ice cream just ends up tasting of frozen custard. I use Asda/Tesco/M&S custard, the fresh stuff that you get in the chiller cabinet and it works really well. You can often get these on special offer and its a big 500 ml tub. Also you can add extra sugar if the ice cream isnt sweet enough, always taste the mixture before adding to ice cream maker.

I use Tesco Finest Cornish Custard and then used my Magimix ice cream machine.The result was great! I would make this again.

There was no flavour to this at all, despite putting in extra vanilla essence, It also needed to be a bit sweeter. I have made lots of home made ice cream from scratch and tried this as I wanted something easy, but I won't make again unless I added something with a strong flavour.

We tried this, and added a large amount of vanilla extract. However, it tasted very very watery. We will try again, as the texture was amazing.
