- 1/2 C whole milk
- 1/4 C + 2 Tbsp sugar
- pinch salt
- 1 C heavy cream
- 1/2 Tbsp vanilla
2. Turn on the ice cream maker; pour the mixture into the frozen freezer bowl and let mix until thickened, 15-20 minutes. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer ice cream to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours (do not freeze in ice cream maker's freezer bowl).
Robyn's notes: very simple and straightforward, and I was pleased with the results. I'm happy with the Cuisinart Automatic Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker (ICE-21): there's no real assembly involved, just a power button and no display, it does the job successfully. The freezer bowl does take up quite a bit of space in our freezer, which is unfortunate, especially considering that I have a Zoku pop maker also taking up space in there, but I can accept that. Additionally, if I want to make more than one recipe at a time (or more than one large batch), I'd need to buy additional freezer bowls or wait several hours between batches, as the freezer bowl must be completely frozen before each use. It refroze quickly, though, was freezing up as I tried to wash it. This simple vanilla ice cream recipe is good, it's creamy and has a good taste of vanilla, but it's not exactly what you'll get in stores (obviously). There is a tendency to coat the tongue and the spoon with cream, so a custard-style vanilla recipe would be the way to go if you don't care for that. Watch me demonstrate this recipe on youtube!
**** 4 Stars: Very Good. Enjoyed by us both, I will make this frequently
