“Indulge in Creamy Delight: Homemade Vanilla Custard Ice Cream Recipe”

Treat yourself to a creamy delight with this homemade vanilla custard ice cream recipe.

How to make Vanilla Custard Ice Cream:


  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the heavy cream, whole milk, and half of the sugar. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it reaches a gentle simmer. Remove from heat.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and the remaining sugar until the mixture is pale and slightly thickened.
  3. Slowly pour about 1/2 cup of the warm cream mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly to temper the eggs.
  4. Gradually add the tempered egg mixture back into the saucepan with the remaining cream mixture, whisking constantly.
  5. Return the saucepan to the stove over medium-low heat. Cook the mixture, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until it thickens and coats the back of the spoon. This should take about 5-7 minutes, and the mixture should reach about 170°F (77°C) on an instant-read thermometer. Do not let it boil.
  6. Once the custard has thickened, remove it from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract and a pinch of salt.
  7. Strain the custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a clean bowl to remove any lumps or cooked egg bits.
  8. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, pressing it directly onto the surface of the custard to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate the custard until completely chilled, preferably overnight.
  9. Once chilled, pour the custard into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions until it reaches a thick and creamy consistency, usually about 20-25 minutes.
  10. Transfer the churned ice cream to a freezer-safe container, cover it with a lid, and freeze for at least 4 hours or until firm.
  11. Serve the homemade vanilla custard ice cream scooped into bowls or cones, and enjoy!
