Grand Ma's Vanilla Egg-Less Ice Cream




About: A Software Engineer. I love learning new things. Hooked up with Instructables. It is the biggest find I ever made. :D Cooking and Crochet are my passion. I love to learn different techniques and cuisines.

This recipe is an egg less version of Vanilla Ice cream. This recipe is very simple to make and does not require an ice cream maker. Hope you like it. The ice cream is milk based and creamy in texture.

This recipe is passed on down the generation. This is a classic ice cream recipe which every one in the family loves. I love this recipe. Every time I make it brings back my child hood memories.

Step 2: Cornflour and Water

Mix corn flour and water till there is no lumps.

Add sugar and heat till completely dissolved.

Add the corn flour and water to the milk. Heat at low heat till it turns creamy.

This will take about 3-5 minutes.

    The author information says she is from India - they use a UK terminology, so what we would call corn starch in North America is what they call corn flour, and used as a thickener, like in this recipe.

    North Americans would usually consider corn flour to be more like finely ground corn that would be used as flour for baking.

    Yes, that is what I was thinking – Americans call the thickener corn starch and corn flour is used for baking things like corn bread. Thank you!

    I have used corn flour. You can check the step 2 photograph of the ingredients. I am not sure why you felt it is corn starch though. Do try it out with corn flakes. It is an awesome topping with Ice cream.
