Vanilla ice cream

Most ice cream recipes call for an ice cream maker, but this is ice cream you can make without one. This is a small quantity. If you have a large family, you can double or triple the recipe. If you have an ice cream maker, you can use the same ratios, adjusted for the capacity of your machine. Follow the directions that come with it.

  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence (extract)
  • 8 tsp rapadura or shakkar (maple syrup or honey should also work fine, but not tested)

In one bowl, whip the cream till thick. In another bowl, beat together the other ingredients till light and frothy. Fold together. Spoon into a container (about 3 cup capacity) and freeze for 4-6 hours. Best eaten straight away.
