Homemade vanilla ice cream

20140103-234637.jpgFor New Year’s Eve 2013 we had planned on making a luscious chocolate pudding dump cake and pairing it with vanilla ice cream. The vanilla ice cream got made, but when the time came to make the chocolate pudding dump cake, a couple of hours before midnight, we were all so full that we couldn’t be bothered.

The ice cream worked well alone.

It was the perfect food-end to 2013. Simple, great taste.

The recipe is David Lebovitz’. It can be found here.

The two changes I made was:

  • I didn’t let it cool overnight. (I ran out of time.) Instead I popped it in the freezer to chill properly for 10 minutes before freezing it in the ice cream machine. (Worked fine.)
  • Added two pods of vanilla beans instead of just one. (Well, it was New Year’s Eve. Also, I was moving the next day, and wanted to spend what I could.)
