I have tried this recipe and find it to be excellent. Those who complain that it is to 'fatty' should perhaps try a lighter alternative to double cream - I use whipping cream, and those who complain that it is too sweet should perhaps use less condensed milk and add in a fruit puree or a fairly bitter honey. My one wish would be for some addition that would help to achieve a softer freeze and wonder if perhaps the addition of one teaspoon of glycerine (as is common to keep Royal Icing from setting like a rock) would work?

Absolutely delicious and so easy to make!

Make this all the time. It's so easy and great to add things to if you don't want plain vanilla.

I found it was like eating sugar although I didn't have an electric whisk at the time of making it, even if I did I don't think it would have made a difference to the sweetness. I did mix it all in well. I will try again with a electric whisk but I'm very tempted to stay with The Food Network for my recipes after this

Followed the recipe to a T. It is absolutely awful, greasy and overly rich, and far too sweet even though I used only 1/3 of a can of condensed milk. Unless you don't mind eating frozen clotted cream by itself, avoid this recipe at all costs!

This recipe is magic. It wasn't too sweet. Very easy to make. We love it!

This recipe has made my ice cream machine redundant... Can highly recommend, as a Christmas variation, putting in a couple of big spoons of mincemeat. Absolutely divine.

If you find this recipe too rich, as number of people appear to, you can use golden syrup instead of condensed milk, although you only need around 2.5 dessert spoons per half pint of cream, so be aware that you'd be making a smaller amount of ice cream.
