Total Time30 mins
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 250 ml 1 cup double cream
- 250 ml 1 cup milk
- 125 g 1/2 cup caster sugar
- 250 g 2 cups mixed berries
Prepare the icecream maker according to your instructions.
Mix the sugar and eggs
While the milk/cream is heating, measure the sugar and put it in a freestanding mixer or mixing bowl.
Separate 3 eggs and add them to the sugar.
Whisk the yolks and sugar together until they are well combined.
Make the Ice cream custard
Keep your whisking your eggs/sugar while you very slowly pour in some of the cream/milk mixture to your mixer.
When most of the hot milk mixture has been added, pour everything back into the pan and put it back on the hob.
Allow it to heat gently for 5 minutes or so; stirring continuously. It’s ready when the custard is thick enough to coat the back of your spoon.
Add the berries
Add the berries to a food processor and whizz them up until they are nicely pureed. Add the berries and icecream custard to a bowl and give it a good mix.
Pour this into your icecream maker and leave to churn/freeze according to your instructions. Do this through a sieve if you want to get rid of any fruit pips.
