Vanilla Ice Cream – not custard-type

Adapted from Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book. This is the recipe we use in the KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment.

French Vanilla Ice Cream - not custard-type
Excellent alone, or makes a good base for lots of flavors. Captain OCD often adds a whole can of frozen concentrated juice (don't add water) to this for flavor. Omit or reduce the vanilla, depending on the flavor you're going for.
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups whipping cream (not whipped)
  • 1 cup whole milk (if you're trying to cut fat, find another recipe: there are lots)
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  1. Whisk the eggs with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  2. Mix in the sugar a little bit at a time.
  3. Mix for about another minute or two.
  4. Add the whipping cream, milk, and vanilla.
  5. Mix for another minute.
  6. Follow the directions for your ice cream maker.
