Honey Vanilla Ice Cream

Vanilla Ice Cream Base-For Variations

  • 1 egg
  • ¾cup sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups milk

Read over variation recipe. It may omit sugar or differ in mixing.

Combine egg and sugar and whisk together. Stir in milk and cream. Add variation ingredients according to directions. This yields about 3 ½ cups and allows for up to ¾ cup of your favorite chopped, crumbled or crushed cookie, candy or other flavor ingredient.

My favorite variation for adults:
Add ½ cup of Grand Manier

Most ice cream recipes call for a combination of cream, milk, eggs and sugar. The type of cream you choose will determine how rich and how creamy your finished product will be. The higher the percentage of fat, the richer your ice cream. Use any combination, as long as the liquid measurement stays the same.

Type of Cream: Fat %
Heavy Cream 36%
Whipping Cream 30%
Table Cream 18%
Half & Half 10%
