This old-time ice cream recipe was actually my great-great-grandmother's recipe. I've tried a lot of different homemade ice cream recipes, but this one always stands out as my family's favorite!
- 5 eggs
- 3 cups sugar
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 (12 ounce) cans evaporated milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- whole milk
- Beat egg yolks with half of sugar and all of flour. Mix until creamy. Add evaporated milk then add rest of sugar and vanilla.
- Beat egg whites until fairly stiff. Fold into above mixture. Put in ice cream freezer and add whole milk, leaving about 1 1/2 inches at top of freezer.
- Freeze in ice cream freezer. Makes 1 gallon.
i used half & half rather than whole milk and it's really quite tasty. if you eat it right away, it pretty much tastes like chocolate soft-serve. not sure how it will be after it freezes/hardens. definitely easy enough to make though!
I am so glad to be the first reviewer for this yummy recipe - AND Susan's first review EVER! I didn't have any evap milk on hand so I used half & half, still came out great! Easy to make and this is definitely a regular dessert now at our house. I served this with Lee Lee's Famous Chocolate Sauce(Lee Lee's Famous Chocolate Sauce for Ice Cream)and the combo was unbelievable! Great recipe, Susan. Welcome to 'Zaar!
