Home made raspberry ripple ice cream

Posted On 29th January 2013

Once you’ve tried home-made ice-cream, you’ll find it hard to go back to shop bought!

Raspberry ripple is a British classic and a favourite of both adults and children alike, but you can have fun experimenting with other flavours too.


  • 568ml carton of double cream
  • 300ml milk (full-fat is best)
  •  teaspoon vanilla paste
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 5 tablespoons raspberry sauce (shop-bought or home-made)
  • 1 tablespoon icing sugar

Using a heavy based pan, heat the cream, milk and vanilla paste until the mixture has almost reached boiling point.

Use an electric mixer to beat together the egg yolks and sugar until they reach a thick and creamy consistency.

Pour the hot cream liquid onto the egg yolks and sugar, whisking thoroughly the whole time.

The inclusion of the Sunday roast in the number one spot is hardly a surprise as it is a well-known favourite and furthermore it fits the growing fashion favouring the return of sit-down, home-cooked family meals.

tea for two

Afternoon tea is a great British tradition undergoing something of a revival at the moment.
