  • 16.9 oz/500ml of double cream 1 Vanilla pod
  • Half a cup/100g of castor sugar
  • 5.07 oz/150ml of milk 4 egg yolks
  • double cream 1 Vanilla pod
    100 grams castor sugar


  1. Halve the vanilla pod lengthways and scrape out the seeds.
  2. Add seeds and pod to a large heavy-based pan with cream and milk. Heat until bubbles appear around the edge. Remove pod.
  3. Meanwhile, beat yolks and sugar in a large bowl until pale. Gradually mix in hot cream mixture. Return to the pan. Cook over low-medium heat, stirring, until the custard thickens to coat the back of a spoon (do not overheat or it will scramble).
  4. Pour into a bowl, cover with clingfilm and cool.
  5. When cool pour into a plastic box and freeze for about an hour to an hour and a half. When ice crystals appear around the edge of the box whip up with electric mixer until smooth. Return to the freezer until frozen.
