Vanilla Theme - Kerri's Dessert (2 of 2)This was part of the dessert for the Vanilla dinner, and was adapted from Cuisinart ice-cream maker recipe booklet.


  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups thickened cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 whole vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 1.5 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, whisk together the milk, cream, half the sugar, vanilla bean and seeds and cinnamon. Bring the mixture just to the boil.
  2. While they are heating, whisk together the egg yolks and remaining sugar in a separate bowl, until mixture is pale and thick.
  3. Once the milk/cream mixture has come to the boil, slowly and gradually whisk it into the egg yolk mixture then return it all to the saucepan and return to heat. Stir the mixture constantly until it thickens slightly and coats the back of a wooden spoon. This should take just a few minutes. Be careful not to overcook or the eggs will form lumps.
  4. Strain and cool the mixture to room temperature. Add vanilla extract and chill in fridge for several hours. Churn in ice-cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to storage container and freeze until serving time.

Makes about 1.5 litres
