Get started making ice cream at home with a classic vanilla ice cream recipe.

A classic vanilla recipe is a good place to start your home ice cream making. It uses a custard base, is pretty easy to make and doesn't require any fancy ingredients.

Classic Vanilla Ice cream recipe


  • 4 egg yolks
  • 100g castor sugar
  • 300ml milk
  • 300ml double cream
  • 2tsp vanilla essence
vanilla recipe


Slowly heat the milk in a saucepan, bringing it to the boil. Use a separate mixing bowl to beat the yolks and sugar together and while still beating, add the milk from the pan.

Return to the heat, keep stirring until the mixture forms a film over the back of the spoon. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Do not allow the mixture to boil or it will separate.

Once cooled stir in the cream and vanilla essence.

Add the mixture to your ice cream maker carefully following the instructions in your manual.
