Delicius Ice Cream in 40 minutes
Member Name: evelyndunton
Advantages: No additives or preservatives
Disadvantages: The bowl has to be frozen for at least 12 hours before making
Well summer is here and the temperature is creeping up so it it time to get out the ice cream maker once again.
I have had one of these machines for several years and must admit that last year with the really bad summer it did not manage to be taken out of its box.
I got it out today after receiving the Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Recipe book which has inspired me to make ice cream again.
The machine is easy to use and makes delicious ice cream in about 40 minutes as long as you have chilled the ingredients Slightly longer if you have not. One disadvantage is that you have to freeze the inner bowl for at least 12 hours - hence the reason I did not make the ice cream yesterday when I was first inspired by the book. I had not stored the inner bowl in the freezer!
However I got together the ingredients - 2 large eggs, 2 cups of double cream, 1 cup of milk and 3/4 cup of sugar. Used the food processor to beat the eggs and sugar added the cream and milk along with some vanilla essence - powered it into the ice cream machine, left it running to 40 minutes then added a handful of shopped up kit-kats and hay presto delicious - not very slimming but absolutely delicious creamy ice cream.
The machine itself comes in several parts, an outer plastic bowl, an inner bowl in which there is some liquid between the two skins which is the freezing element, a plastic paddle which fits into the small motor and a see through plastic lid with a pouring hole in it. Once the inner bowl has been in the freezer this is placed in the outer bowl, the lid with the motor and paddle assembled and switched on before pouring in the ice cream mixture, which would immediately freeze to the bowl if the motor was not running. The mixture is then left to churn and freeze for about 40 to 50 minutes.
As simple as that - delicious ice cream with no additives or preservatives at a fraction of the price you would pay in the supermarket.
Summary: Great for making lovely ice cream
