Do you love the frozen custard sold at places like Culvers? I do! I recently got an ice cream maker and decided to give homemade frozen custard a try. It’s not that hard to make, but the process is somewhat time-consuming. It’s not for anyone who demands immediate gratification. Trust me though… the final result is worth the wait!
Frugal Tip: When a recipe calls for only egg yolks or egg whites, don’t throw the other part away! They can frozen and kept for later use.
- 4 egg yolks
- 1 C. white sugar
- 1 C. milk
- 1¼ C. heavy cream
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- In a mixer, combine eggs yolks and sugar until mixed. Meanwhile, heat milk on the stovetop on medium heat until just before the boiling point.
- Next, SLOWLY add the milk to the egg/sugar mixture, stirring constantly.
- Place the egg/sugar/milk mixture back on the stovetop on medium, stirring constantly, until thickened. Allow to cool.
- Add cream and vanilla, and chill for 4 hours or overnight.
- Place the custard mixture in your ice cream maker and follow manufacturer instructions.
