We have been making our own ice cream for a couple years now. When we got our ice cream maker, we thought we would be making all these crazy flavors and experimenting all the time. And we do, however more times than not, we just make good ol', plain and simple, Vanilla.
Dress it up however you want, each time you have a bowl you can change it up with a new flavor. It just never gets old. It's that simple. And easy to make. 5 simple ingredients, and a couple hours is all you need.
We always make sure we keep the freezer bowl portion of our ice cream maker in the freezer so that it's ready for us, as soon as our ingredients are ready. We had to wait for the bowl once, and we never let that happen again!
Vanilla Ice Cream
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup granulated sugar
pinch of salt
2 cups heavy cream
1 tablespoon vanilla
In medium bowl, combine milk, sugar, and salt. Using hand mixer, mix on low until sugar is dissolved. Once sugar is dissolved, add heavy cream and vanilla. Stir well. Cover bowl and refrigerate for at least two hours.
Pour mixture into your ice cream maker, and follow manufacturer's instructions. Based on my maker, it will take about 20 minutes. Enjoy immediately as a soft-serve consistency, or return to freezer for a couple hours for a more firm ice cream.
