  • Brilliant! This is my ice-cream recipe. EVERYONE...

    Brilliant! This is my ice-cream recipe. EVERYONE raves over it.

    I'm afraid I double it and do it in two lots in my ice-cream machine. Pour it into the Thermomix ice-cream containers.

    But my excuse is I have 18 grandchildren and it is full of goodness.

    I double everything, except the last cook. This only takes 10 minutes turning from 80 to 90.

    Thank you Maryanne

  • Absolutely perfect and delicious...I even mucked...

    Absolutely perfect and delicious...I even mucked up the method and it still worked! I used 100gm sugar. Served with Christmas pudding and everyone loved it. Great way to use up my egg yolks from making Christmas pavlovas. Will definitely make again to use as an ice cream base.

  • This is a seriously good

    This is a seriously good recipe. It is the recipe I have been looking for. Tastes and pours just like store bought custard. I did have to cook for slightly longer than the 7-8 min but well worth it. Did not adjust the sugar. Tastes delicious cold.

    Thanks for the recipe! I used 220gr sugar but found it too sweet still (and I have a sweet tooth!) I would use 125 grams next time tmrc_emoticons.)
