Homemade Ice Cream

12 July 2013
Britain is currently sitting pretty through the rare period of time we call 'Summer' and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to get my Delia Smith on and make something. Cue journey to Pinterest. I saw a post with just scoops of chocolate and orange ice cream and thought yup, I want in on that... immediately.

There was no recipe, so I've kind of improvised with about 3 I found online, but it turned out pretty good so let's go...

I know the chocolate one looks more like Strawberry... it was the lighting, promise...

You will need:

250g caster sugar
2 eggs
600ml double cream
250ml semi skimmed milk
250ml chocolate flavoured milk (I used Yazoo, ikr...)
Orange extract (Sainsbury only had this one, fancy huh?)
Orange food colouring (or red and yellow if you're a bit daring)

2 microwave-safe bowls
2 spoons
A fork
Weighing scales
A measuring jug
Patience


Method:

1. In one of the bowls, crack an egg open, and then whisk the white and yolk together with a fork.

2. Add 125g of caster sugar, and mix up the egg and sugar until you get a fairly runny mixture.

3. Add 300ml of double cream and mix together.

4. Put in the microwave for 45 seconds, and then add 250ml of milk.

5. Mix everything together and leave to stand somewhere cool.

6. Repeat with the second bowl but use 250ml of chocolate milk instead.

7. Cover the bowls with cling film and place in the freezer for an hour.

8. Take them both out and give them a good stir.

9. Add your flavouring and colouring to the non-chocolate mixture (you can even go a bit wild and add something to the chocolate if you want... go on, I dare you.)

10. Take some time to think about how small and cute the flavouring/colouring bottles are.

11. Freeze the two mixtures again for an hour, and take them out to stir.

12. Freeze for a further 8-10 hours, then your ice cream should be all solidified and ready to be nommed.

Feel free to keep taking the mixture out and stirring on a regular basis to add some more air in and make it a little softer, we left ours to freeze overnight, and still had a pretty good result so feel free to bend the rules a bit, you little rebel.
