Home made Ice Cream Recipe

This is a recipe for home made butterscotch ice cream.

Butterscotch Ice Cream

2 oz Butter
2&1/2 oz Caster sugar
4 dr Vanilla essence
6 tablespoons dark soft brown sugar
1/2 pt (Warmed slightly) full cream milk
2 Eggs
10 fl Fresh whipping cream
Continued after sponsor message:

Melt the brown sugar and butter together in a pan over a gentle heat. Increase the heat until the mixture bubbles for a minute only. Then allow the mixture to cool slightly and add the warm milk (this stops the mixture from hardening too quickly). Stir continuously over a gentle heat until thoroughly mixed.

Allow to cool. In a seperate bowl, beat together the eggs and the caster sugar then pour the mixture from the saucepan onto it. Add the vanilla essence and stir then strain back into the pan.

Stir over a low heat until the mixture thickens slightly; take care not to let it boil. Cool the mixture, then Whip the cream lightly and fold into the cooled mixture. Pour into a freezer container and freeze until softly frozen (mushy). Beat with a whisk and return to the freezer until the ice cream is firm.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
