Almost everyone loves ice cream, but what a lot of folks do not understand is that it is extremely simple to make. You don’t need any fancy equipment to enjoy delicious homemade ice cream. In actuality, you don’t even need that much time, since the recipe I am about to share will take less than 15 minutes!
At the end, you will have a rich, velvety and indulgent vanilla ice cream; the perfect thing to enjoy with a slice of apple pie, or to impress your friends with at the end of a dinner party.
So as to make ice cream, you generally have to use a machine. If you do not keep the mixture moving while it freezes, ice crystals form inside and give the ice cream a gritty texture when you consume it. You’ve probably experienced this texture when you have re-frozen a carton of ice cream that has thawed; it is about a million miles away from the smooth feel it should have.
The Secret That Makes This Easy and Fast Poop
The key to easy ice cream is just to stick to a traditional custard recipe that requires no stirring. To do that, we simply have to use heavy cream in the mixture, and no milk. This way, we can simply throw the mixture in the freezer to set. That means no more stirring, and no more fuss!
For this recipe you’ll want only 4 ingredients: 2 cups of heavy cream, 1.75oz of granulated sugar, 2 egg yolks, and 1 vanilla pod.
You’ll want to put the seeds to one side on a plate, as we’ll need them later.
Then take the pods and toss them in a pan, along with the sugar and cream.
Put the pan over a medium heat, and sir the mix while it heats up. When it reaches the boil, then turn down the heat and whisk together the egg yolks in a bowl.
Slowly pour the mixture into to the bowl with the egg yolks, whilst whisking them together. Fish out the vanilla pods, and transfer the mixture into a freezer proof bowl.
Finally, all you need to do is throw the mixture into the freezer for 2 to 3 hours, and we’re done! Delicious homemade vanilla ice cream, with just 15 minutes preparation!
