Economy Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe

Economy Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 1 liter

600 ml/1 pt milk
30 ml/2 tbsp custard powder
100 g/4 oz caster (superfine) sugar

5 ml/1 tsp vanilla essence (extract)
1 sachet of Dream Topping mix


Set aside 150 ml of the milk to make up the Dream Topping. Blend the custard powder with a little of the remaining milk and the sugar in a saucepan. Add the remaining milk, bring to the boil and cook for 2 minutes, stirring all the time, until thick and smooth. Stir in the vanilla essence. Cover with a circle of wetted greaseproof (waxed) paper to prevent a skin forming and leave until cold.

Make up the Dream Topping with the reserved milk as directed on the packet. Fold into the custard. Turn into a freezer-proof container and freeze for 12 hours. Whisk with a fork to break up the ice crystals, then freeze until firm.
