  1. Place the raspberries and 2 tbsp of the sugar in a small pan. Cook on a medium heat until sugar dissolves. Simmer for 5 mins until thickened, then push through a sieve into a bowl and discard the seeds left in the sieve.

  2. Place the eggs, egg yolks and remaining sugar in a bowl. Whisk with an electric whisk to combine, then place over a pan of gently simmering water – make sure the bowl isn’t actually touching the water. Beat with the electric whisk for 3-4 mins until thick and pale. Remove from heat and continue beating until cool.

  3. In another bowl, whisk the cream until it forms soft peaks, then gently fold into the cool egg mix until just combined. Pour the mix into a shallow container or dish that can be frozen.

  4. Gently swirl the raspberry coulis through, cover with cling film and freeze for at least 6 hrs. Serve scoops in bowls with sliced mango and extra raspberries, or scoop into cones and top with sprinkles for the kids.

I made this and added some vanilla extract. It is absolutely delicious and several people have said it is the best they have ever had !! I am now on a mission to try to basic recipe with other additions such as mango or black currants.

I've made it twice. The 1st time was with raspberries and it got a lot of compliments at my lunch party. Then i had a glut of cream and clotted cream to use up after Xmas so made it this time with stem ginger and the ginger syrup that comes with it. Absolutely delish and my kids turned into gannets.

I made this yesterday and it was lovely however it takes longer than 6 hours to freeze or you get an egg tasting mouse, but when completely frozen it was excelent. I also made half or the ice cream with blackberry coulis As well which turned out excelent as well however with both icecreams the raspberry/ blackberry just sank to the bottom of the tub, maybe spreading it out over shallower pots would be better.

Somewhat time consuming and leaving quite a bit of washing up! I made it healthier by using xylitol instead of sugar (and added a tsp of pectin to thicken the raspberries). I didn't have a long enough lead to whisk on the hob so just used a hand whisk which was fine. I will try 50:50 elmlea light double and double cream next time. The consistency was def that of ice cream although it's very rich so 2 scoops is plenty even for an ice cream-aholic!

What other fruits could I use as an alternative.

Thanks for your question. You can substitute with other berries - blackberries would make a great alternative.

Is there any way of preventing the coulis from sinking to the bottom?

Thanks for your question. If the cream is in soft peaks before adding the coulis it should hold but if you're finding this doesn't work for you, you can freeze for an hour or so then stir through the coulis. Hope that helps!

Yes thats what I found, so as suggested I froze the ice cream for a while then stirred the coulis through.

You may find that the coulis sinks to the bottom as the mixture is quite liquid to begin with. To prevent this, freeze the ice cream for maybe 45 mins to an hour WITHOUT the coulis, then stir it through. A lovely, reliable recipe that I have made several times and its always a hit. Yum!
