Real ice cream with basic ingredients. No fancy ice cream makers, just the freezer. Freeze time comes under cook time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 200 g caster sugar
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 500 ml cream
  • fruit puree (or other natural flavour to choice)


  1. Cream together the sugar and egg yolks until almost white.
  2. Add half of the cream and whisk together until combined, and then stir in the rest of the cream and your chosen flavour or puree.
  3. Pour into a container and freeze.
  4. After an hour- check, re-whisk and return to the freezer.
  5. Try frozen raspberries or strawberries blended into a puree or add a few drops of vanilla essence or even better--real vanilla pods.
