Merry Christmas everyone. I hope your day is filled with yummy treats and that your stretchy pants look as good this year. I look forward to catching up with family and eating lots of delicious things. Namely, a glazed ham. I dream of ham year round.
The weather has really turned bright and hot for us this Christmas and with summer weather comes demand for ice cream. I successfully made ice cream for the first time and I stirred in a bit of home made russian fudge for a buttery flavour boost. No ice cream maker required, just an egg beater and plenty of bowls.
I found this easy ice cream recipe online here by a user named Marble. I’ve reblogged it just in case that page ever disappears. I have very limited kitchen space so never had the desire to hoard a food processor or an ice cream maker. I love how the fanciest tool required for this recipe is an egg beater. No food processor or ice cream maker required!
Use 3 bowls
lst bowl 4 egg whites – Beat till stiff, add ¼ cup any sugar, beat again
2nd bowl 4 egg Yolks – Beat till frothy with another ¼ cup any sugar
3rd bowl Beat 300 ml Cream until fairly stiff
Put contents of bowl 1 and bowl 3 into bowl 2.
Fold in with metal spoon.
Pour into 2 litre ice cream box and freeze approx 6 hours.
No need to beat again
How easy is that!
My little grandchildren love to make it and we all love to eat it.
Even my stepson, a confirmed bachelor who never goes in the kitchen can make it.
You can add stuff to it just before freezing – tinned caramel – grated chocolate – dash of vanilla essence – but it is super as it is.
