This was super easy to put together, and definitely gets more voluminous as it churns. I had hoped to taste more maple flavor, though...the vanilla was more prevalent, so I'll probably leave it out, and add more maple syrup the next time around. Yummy1

This was nice and creamy. I was going to make this for Zaar World Tour 2006, but never got to it. Sure glad we made it tonight. A mixer would blend in the cornstarch better then a whisk. Other then needing to beat a couple of lumps out of the mixture this was easy to put together. ellie, thank you for sharing your recipe.

Wonderful. So sweet and creamy and delicious. The cornstarch is a great addition to the custard as it helps it set and, I'm sure, helps in the final creamy outcome. I will be SO making this recipe often this summer. Next time I'll add some toasted walnut pieces to get a taste of old-fashioned, Canadian Maple Walnut Ice Cream.
