It is always good to have ice cream in this scorching hot day to chill out. If having an ice cream with your favorite flavors of fruits or other things (you name it) would be great. Besides, with this recipe you can make your ice cream with a nice creaminess and texture yet easy. I learnt this from my school, I was like in heaven when I tried the ice cream, and so I decided to redo at my condo and share to y'all, with some variations as well. By the way, this is my first post in instructables, hope y'all like it. If you think I deserve a vote, please do as you pleased. ^o^
I used heavy-duty blender machine, thermomix, but you can use ice cream maker or without any machine at all. In first step, I'll instruct you to use saucepan to prepare the mixture. And then, separate into 3 ways of doing.
First, we'll need to make an ice cream base which I have used is vanilla ice cream.
Vanilla ice cream:
64g skim milk powder
482g heavy cream (fat content at least 35%)
69g egg yolks
40g powdered glucose*
4g vanilla pod*
4g vanilla extract
-Powdered glucose is added to prevent crystallization of sugar
-Use vanilla pod if available. If not use 8g of vanilla extract
-Stabilizer is to reduce iciness.
P. S. #Please follow the recipe as EXACT as possible. You can reduce the recipe, but the ratio of ingredients must be correct in order to achieve same texture and result.
Step 1: Cook and Pasteurize the Mixture
¤In a saucepan, bring milk and milk powder, start to warm the mixture and stir with whisk.
¤Check the temperature with thermometer. At 37 °C, add sugar, powdered glucose, cream and vanilla extract.
¤When about 50 °C, mix egg yolks and stabilizer in.
¤Pasteurize the mixture at 85 °C for 2-3 minutes. Take off the heat, and cool down for awhile.
And now the base mixture for ice cream is done~
