French vanilla icecream with caramel & nuts


I never thought of making the icecreams by my own. During our vacation holidays, amma buys & serve us the icecream with lotz of fruits & nuts. I & my brother will finish that in no time & stand in the Q for the next round.

Since, it had been bit warmer nowdays, I decided to make my favourite vanilla icecream. This is my first attempt & was a great hit.

Ingredients :
  1. 3 large Egg yolks
  2. 1/2 cup sugar
  3. Vanilla extract - 1 1/2 tbsp
  4. Heavy cream - 2 cups
  5. Whole milk - 2 cups
  6. Pinch of salt
  7. Caramel sauce
  8. Any nuts -1/2 cup ( I used almonds)

For serving :

  1. Cherries - 1/2 cup (canned)
  2. Vanilla waffer
  3. Whipped cream

Method :

  • Beat the egg yolks, sugar & vanilla extract till smooth & pale yellow in color. Keep aside.

  • Combine & cook the heavy cream, milk & pinch of salt on a medium heat. Bring it to boil & switch off the flame.

  • Now mix the warm cream mixture into the egg mixture very gradually, whisking continously.

  • Cook the above mixture in the sauepan on the medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook until the mixture is thickened. Switch off the flame & chill the mixture in the fridge.

  • Transfer the mixture to the ice cream maker & freeze it according to the manufacturer's directions.

It approx. takes 30 - 45 mins (depending upon the ice cream maker).

Assembling :

  1. Spread the freezed icecream in the box as the first layer.

  2. Spread the caramel sauce & nuts as the second layer.

  3. Repeat the same.

  4. Freeze it in the refrigerator & serve.

Serve them with whipped cream, vanilla waffer & the cheeries.
